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

Looking back on our days of your company and hospitality, mountain ridges, ancient forests, secret swimming places and swathes of flowers shy and bold with many attendant disperser creatures, we feel very privileged to have enjoyed all that you shared with us so generously. We were greatly enriched by Sean and Billy's deep fund of knowledge and stories of the wild bush, and the many special touches (wine tasting by starlight, bush drinks, lunch spread in shade when were hot and tired, tea by the waterfall, sunglasses retrieval service, gift of honey and field guide and so much more) - we are already spreading the word to friends, and talking of coming again in the winter.
