About Simbavati Fynbos on Sea

Simbavati Fynbos on Sea is a stunning eco-friendly luxury lodge, tucked away between the Garden Route towns of George and Knysna, sitting on a verdant hillside offering uninterrupted panoramic views in every direction. The lodge is within touching distance of the golden sands and rolling waves of the Indian Ocean, as well as the beautiful Sedgefield Lagoon, and the forest-covered heights of the Tsitsikamma and Outeniqua mountain ranges beyond.

The accommodation at Simbavati Fynbos on Sea consists of just nine private rooms within the main lodge, and an additional self-catering cottage that's perfect for those travelling with friends or family. Elegantly decorated, each unit offers impressive vistas from private patio areas reached via French doors. The main lodge also features a view-drenched pool deck, fully stocked bar, spacious lounge and lovely dining area where breakfast is served each morning.

Simbavati Fynbos on Sea Setting

Simbavati Fynbos on Sea is located in one of the most beautiful stretches of South Africa, with grounds that span 600 hectares of native fynbos reserve where regular sightings of a rich array of wildlife, including zebra, eland, bushbuck, and waterbuck, await nature lovers. The expansive grounds are woven with nature trails for avid hikers, with off-road trails that extend to mountain biking too. Alternatively, let someone else do the hard work with guided 4x4 Garden Route wildlife viewing game drives.

Just a short distance from Simbavati Fynbos on Sea are opportunities to take to the Swartvlei and Sedgefield Lagoons on kayaks. The beach is an other option, as is the fascinating visit to a local protea farm. However, for the ultimate adventure activities in the Garden Route, guests need look no further than paragliding and bungee jumping.

  • Could've stayed longer

    We needed an escape and this was exactly what was needed! Magical! The private pool was the cherry on top! I only wish we had booked for a longer stay. It really was so tranquil.
