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

When the accolades grow - as they must ultimately do - for the feat accomplished by Sean in establishing the Fynbos Trail then most hikers and flower lovers-local and international will learn of this gem on Cape Town's outskirts. Untill then it rests with me-on behalf of The Alter Kakker Group to thank Sean and his team of supporters for a most memorable experience and pleasant 3 day hike. The attention to detail in construction of the trail and efforts by Sean and Billy to show it to best advantage speak of a passion to their cause which must be experienced by all nature lovers. From Sean's painstaking efforts to educate us in the field of fynbos and other flora in plain language to the quality of the overnight accommodations this has been an experience that cannot be too highly recommended.
