George - Garden Route - South Africa Helicopter Flights
In 1811 a bailiwick was built by the British occupation of the Cape at the foot of the Outeniqua Mountains and the resulting city was named after King George III. The picturesque town is famous for its wide, oak-lined streets.
Until the second half of the 20th century, Mossel Bay remains a rather sleepy Harbor nest with a few holiday offers. In the summer months, the coastal town has become one of the most popular holiday resorts in South Africa. It offers its holiday guests the second best climate in the world after Hawaii and is located halfway between Cape Town and Port Elizabeth at the beginning of the famous Garden Route.
The small town (99,000 inhabitants) is one of the few places on the Garden Route that is not shared by the N2 motorway. It offers its visitors many attractions, especially noteworthy are the beautiful sandy beaches on Little Brak River and the famous Dana Bay, which are ideal for long walks on the beach.
The George Museum houses exhibits of local and national interest and is housed in the "Old Drosty", the old administrative building of this district. In his heyday, George was considered the Metrop media metropolis ’, which is why old printing presses, typewriters and gramophones can mainly be seen. Relics of the mission history of the Cape Province can be found on the upper floor of the museum. Interesting because this part of history has had an impact on this region to this day. In the garden wing of the museum, the topic of the timber industry, which plays a special role in this region, is discussed in depth. For example, logging is prohibited by law around George until 2136.
George Station, the old train station, has been lovingly restored and until recently was the terminus of the historic Outeniqua Choo-Tjoe Train. An absolute must for lovers of past architecture. Even the ticket office and the benches in the hall were given consideration during the renovation.
The Railway Museum is located not far from the train station. In the old, huge parcel loading hall, trains from almost all epochs of train history have been put together, which will not only interest enthusiasts.
