Within easy reach of hiking trails in the area, Lake Pleasant is also favourably situated for visiting all places of interest, from Tsitsikamma Forest and the Big Tree to Mossel Bay with its superb harbor and deep-sea game fishing. Only 100km away, travelling over good tarred roads via the Outeniqua Pass, lies Oudtshoorn:  not only famous for Ostrich Farms and the Cango Caves, but also a budding Wine and Dried Fruit Industry in the vicinity.

On the eastern boundary is the 2000 hectare Goukamma Nature Reserve, part of which incorporates the 4km Lake Trail.

Alternatively, short drives or walks can be planned to incorporate the Knysna Forest (watch out for the Elephants!) or go back in time and take a drive along the old road between George and Knysna.

For the Outdoor enthusiast the area offers many popular golf courses and a variety of other pursuits ranging from bungee jumping to paragliding and scuba diving.

There are some really delightful picnic spots locally: Valley of Ferns, Jubilee Creek, Millwood, Garden of Eden and Brackenhill Falls, to name but a few.

Millwood's claim to fame as the centre of the first Gold Rush in South Africa petered out at the end of the 19th Century when eyes turned towards the Reef,  although old timers still reckon there's gold in them thar hills!
