Margaux and Edoardo



The closest airport to the venue is the George Airport (GRJ).

If you travel from Italy or Norway, you'll probably fly to South Africa via Johannesburg (JNB) or Cape Town (CPT).

Once there, South African Airways has several domestic flights connecting Cape Town (CPT) and Johannesburg (JNB) to George.

Flight search

We've collected some websites that can be used to search and book flights to South Africa.

  • Hipmunk: easy and effective website for comparing different solutions. It has support for multi-city flights planning.
  • Swiss Airlines: from our researches, Swiss Airlines offers one of the cheapest ticket to Johannesburg (JNB) from Zurich (ZRH); consider them if you travel from Europe.
  • Lufthansa: a bit more expensive than Swiss Airlines, but also offers some good solutions, most probably transiting through Frankfurt (FRA), and you might end up flying on a new and shiny Airbus A380 ;)
  • South African Airways: if you buy tickets separately you'll end up buying a flight to George (most probably from Johannesburg) here.


What follows is the list of suggestions for accommodation we got from Tramonto.

  • Farmlands: a lovely farm and country atmosphere and central base to explore the Garden Route.
  • African Sun: a small holding with relaxing atmosphere and a beautiful view of the Outeniqua mountains.
  • 10 Caledon Street Guest House: a Bed & Breakfast guest house in George, Garden Route situated in beautiful and tranquil surroundings.
  • Malvern Manor Country Guest House: a luxury 4 star guest house on a 50 acre country estate near Fancourt, which sits on the foothills of the Outeniqua mountains.
  • Argyle House: a guest house located in a quiet cul–de–sac 200m from the state forest in the exclusive George suburb of Heatherlands.
  • Tantivvey Guest Farm: a small farm surrounded by the beautiful Outeniqua mountains.
  • The Garden Villa: a luxury place of tranquillity, a graceful Cape-Dutch homestead right at the foot of the Outeniqua mountains.
  • The Penny Royal: a beautiful, self-catering "home from home" overlooking the ocean, situated between the beautiful town of George and quaint village of the Wilderness.

All these are very close to the wedding venue, but there are many other possibilities in George and its surroundings.

Tramonto also offers accommodation at their Guesthouse.


If you plan to visit a bit South Africa, you might end up renting a car.
