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

Hi Fynbos Trail people and all the excellent trailers, I was looking back at all the other 13 slack packing trails we have done since 2004 and this trail certainly rates in the top of them. That fynbos flora area is another dimension in ones life. Thanks to all the Fynbos team, Sean, Michelle, Nina and Billy for a really memorable trail. The accommodation and the food were outstanding. The lunch at Growing the Future was out of this world. South Africa has so much to offer. [Coastal + Option 1, May 2018]
