Simbavati Fynbos on Sea

CEDARBERG RATING

Premier

Overview

Situated above the quaint town of Sedgefield, along South Africa’s Garden Route, this eco-paradise offers sweeping views over beaches, mountains, lagoons, and a fynbos wonderland.

Simbavati Fynbos on Sea is perched high above the dunes overlooking the Indian Ocean, surrounded by a 600-hectare pristine fynbos wilderness and a working protea farm. The conservancy abounds with plains game such as eland, zebra, bushbuck, and waterbuck, so there is plenty to see in all directions.

Immerse yourself in scenery to revive both mind and soul. Sedgefield has a tortoise as its emblem to remind visitors of the joy of ‘slow travel’. So meander along our nature trails, lie and watch the clouds or sit with binoculars. Enjoy a picnic or sundowners overlooking Gerickes Point. When you fancy a change of pace, take a mountain bike and choose from a variety of off-road trails.

Close to but off the conservancy, discover lovely fossil dunes and beaches, kayak on the Swartvlei and Sedgefield lagoons, visit the neighbouring protea farm. In summer at low tide, snorkelling in the rockpools can be a treat. More excitement still? This area is a big draw for advanced paragliding. Invigorating sunrises and romantic sunsets will make this an unforgettable stay.
