About Ballots Bay

Ballots Bay is one of the Garden Route’s best kept secrets tucked away in a Nature Reserve between George and Wilderness. This beautiful nature reserve is abundant with wildlife! If you take a leisurely drive around the Ballot’s Heights you are likely to spot Bush buck, Zebra, Grysbok, Bontebok and the easiest to find are Ostrich that roam the open plains at the top. If you explore further, you might be lucky to find the more elusive creatures such as Lynx, Porcupine, Bush Pig and Snakes. Ballots Bay is also home to approximately 130 species of birds, including the magnificent Knysna Loerie and is densely covered by a huge variety of fynbos.

Ballots Bay is truly a journey of discovery with plenty of walks/hikes. This includes a beautiful forest walk where you can stop for a picnic or braai surrounded by trees. You can also cool off in the secluded rock pools accessed via steep cliffs. Down at the Bay, there is a small pebble beach which is perfectly sheltered by steep cliffs on either side. This beach is well-loved by Fishermen, Beach Lovers and Nature Enthusiasts!
