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.

Thank you all so much for our idyllic âtrail blazingâ with the best guide ever, we loved every moment of it and will spread the word..... I love the book and will make good my promise to learn as many tree and plant names as I can jam into my head. With all the best wishes and so hope we may repeat our visit before we âcanât make it !!
