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

It was a glorious trail, and having Sea'’s knowledge of the fynbos, trees and the environment to hand with us on it, added so much. But you both were so good to us and had thought out the details of it so well. That showed in all kinds of both big and little things, and the time at Bodi Khaya was a treat. I've been re-living it looking at Sean's Field Guide to Grootbos - now that’s a wonderful book, and I'm so pleased to have a copy. All strength to your elbows - may you and your trails prosper.
