Take A Walk On The Wild Side

The Fynbos Trail runs through the breathtakingly beautiful Cape Floral Kingdom, which is a World Heritage Site, that is just waiting to be explored by you. The trail weaves its way through magical forests as well as through blankets of more than 800 species of coastal and mountain Fynbos. Embraced by an exquisite backdrop of mountain and sea, you will experience Cape flora and fauna at its exquisite best. Here, nature’s tapestry is punctuated by gushing waterfalls and the cry of birds, native to this picturesque area in the Overberg.
