The town of George, in the heart of the Western Cape’s Garden Route, is about halfway between Cape Town and the Nelson Mandela Metropole (NMMM – a.k.a. Port Elizabeth). Many visitors flying into George are headed for nearby Knysna, the region’s famous lagoon village, just over an hour’s drive away.

George airport is small, clean, and very efficient. You’ll hardly recall passing through it once you’ve hit the road!
