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

Oh what a joy it was to do the Fynbos Hike. The most memorable 3 days of my life so far, and I am 71. We all loved it and want to return for sure. We were treated like royalty, and I didn't use my washing up gloves once lol. I have looked through the flower book several times and it all comes back, the good times not the long uphills which I thought would never end. But that's old hikers for you, not fond of long uphills. But the views at the top all made it worthwhile. Even the rain didn't bother me. I keep wondering if the sun had been out how many more flowers there would have been to take pics of. Then we would never have got to the end that day. So again, thank you all for the wonderful holiday we had. You are all such lovely kind caring people, do so hope you get many many more visitors and can keep going for ever!
