The Tops is a 3 star graded B&B with self catering option, offering Wilderness accommodation for tourists and visitors of on the Garden Route.

About The Tops

Due to our elevated position, The Tops has one of the most beautiful views in South Africa. The panorama created by the Indian Ocean and river mouth in the front and the indigenous forest behind, places The Tops in a most magnificent position.


Self Catering Studios:
We have four self-catering studios, each one leading on to a deck through wide sliding doors offering not only a magnificent view, but also facilities for a private barbeque. Each studio is ideally suited for a family of four, or we can accommodate groups, such as paragliders of 8 to 16 on adventure holidays, or business people who would like to get away from it all after work. For them we offer the large reception area on the top deck for recreation, which is equipped with a barbeque and bar. Here one can enjoy a beer and braai in a unique setting.

Each studio is laid out in L-shape, Queen-size bed in the long leg directly next to the bathroom. TV channels: SABC 1, 2, 3 and eTV. The fully equipped kitchenette, lounge area and sleeper couch take up the rest. The sleeper couches on the first floor have two single beds each and the two on the second floor, a double bed each.

A lift takes you and your luggage to your studio and you won't need your car once it is parked directly below, because everything you might need is within walking distance.

B&B Rooms
We have four en-suite rooms, which are popular with honeymooners. Each room opens on to a private wooden balcony / deck where a tasty breakfast can be enjoyed. There is a bag lift to take your luggage to your room. All en-suite rooms have sea views.

Activities and Attractions

Pack a picnic basket and visit our three bird hides. Watch the kingfisher’s diving for fish and swallowing them right in front of you. Try to land your own cob or grunter from the river on the boardwalk or on the beach. Canoe along the river to the waterfall and swim in the cool, cola-coloured water in the pools below.

We are in the heart of the Wilderness Village, about seven minutes' walk from the beach, the lagoon, seven restaurants and close to three hiking trails. This is also a paradise for cyclists and mountain bikers.

Ek wil julle net graag namens my en my familie bedank vir die heerlike tyd by julle. Dis net jammer ons kon nie langer bly nie. Die plek is baie mooi en netjies, met ‘n baie mooi uitsig. Die personeel is gaaf en vriendelik. Ek het die reeds aan mense aanbeveel. Groete Jan
