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

A special thank you for making our weekend so fun-filled and entertaining. I know that the other ladies will agree that it was a very special time spent at a very special place, with very special people. I came back full of awe, having gained some knowledge (if only a tiny amount) of the glorious fynbos right on our doorstep. Sean and Billy, your enthusiasm was so catchy that your visitors would have to be dead not to become enthralled too. Take care and keep up the enthusiasm. You make us very Proudly South African!
