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 both so much for a wonderful few days hiking the Fynbos Trail. I enjoyed it immensely. It was especially good to have Sean and Billie as guides. I learnt so many fascinating extras about the Fynbos and the environment. It was a special treat for me. The flowers and the Fynbos were amazing! The food was equivalent, in my book, to gourmet meals. You certainly went the extra mile as far as feeding us was concerned. I know it takes a lot of hard work and organising. It is much appreciated. Thank you too for your very generous gift of the Grootbos Nature Reserve Book which is so beautifully written and illustrated. It is a real gem! Not to forget the jar of honey we were given before leaving the Grootbos Lodge after another delicious meal. All in all a wonderful few days. I hope to bring my family along in the not too distant future as I am sure they will love it.
