Recreation

Flight training is serious business and we encourage our students to eat, sleep and drink aviation. George is a marvelous city and offers many exciting diversions from an otherwise demanding flying course.


The famous Knysna Heads

Nearby is Oudtshoorn, famous for the Cango Caves and ostrich, cheetah and crocodile farms. Knysna, famous for its oyster farms and homecrafts, is 60km's away and George boasts Fancourt, an exquisite country golfing estate. There are several famous golf courses scattered between George and Plettenberg Bay, all designed by players such as Gary Player, Jack Nicklaus and Ernie Els. The Presidents Cup was held here in 2003 and several more tournaments are planned.

Surfing is excellent at the well-known Vic Bay. Outdoor activities include boating, fishing and deep-sea angling, tennis, squash, hiking, bowling, horse riding, scuba diving and water skiing.
