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

Thank you so much for the last few days on the Fynbos Trail. We loved every moment of it, and were totally captivated by the flora - and the stories you told about them. What a great privilege to have such expert guides! My knowledge of fynbos has taken a huge leap forward! We also very much enjoyed the overnight stops, the forest lunches, and the welcome drinks each day - Billy's iced rooibos tea followed by the best pizzas in the world, Michelle's ginger beer, Bhodi Khaya's sweet melon juice... Topped off by a swim and delicious lunch at the Lodge.
