Welcome to The Fynbos Trail

The Fynbos trail is a unique nature experience in the heart of the Cape Floral Kingdom that can be undertaken as a fully guided and catered slackpacking trail or as a self-guided and catered trail. This trail, just two hours from Cape Town and close to Hermanus Overberg, has a two or three night option and takes hikers along a beautiful stretch of trail through coastal and mountain fynbos, remote forests and visits some fascinating environmental and social projects along the way. Ideal for those looking for a walking holiday in Cape Town, South Africa.

What are people saying

We would like to thank you for your warm-hearted hospitality we received on the hike, as well as all the knowledge that Billy engulfed us with. Just a pity that we didn't have a recorder with us to remember all of it. As Dave mentioned, it really was one of our favourite hikes as well. The Milkwood forest and Grootbos trees were spectacular (what a climb to get there). Not having to carry a lunch pack on our backs was a bonus...and to get a table laden to feast from in the 'bos' with a little stream burbling by...that was just WOW, not forgetting Lindsay's delicious spread on the bee farm nor the end of trail meal at Grootbos Lodge - you spoiled us to a tea. The area surrounding the farms, including the coastline, is absolutely amazing. Spotting the whales near the Klipgat Cave was super, seeing as it was early times for them... What you guys are doing is really visionary. Good luck and keep it up. [Coastal + Option 1]
