Fynbos on Sea

The luxurious nature of a Fynbos on Sea getaway is evident from the moment you pull off National Route 2 onto Swartvlei Beach Road. Fynbos on Sea lies on a verdant hillside with uninterrupted panoramic views in every direction. It is situated roughly between the towns of George and Knysna on South Africa’s famed Garden Route.

Fynbos on Sea accommodation is made up of just nine rooms within the main lodge. There is an additional self-catering cottage ideal for family stays. Elegantly decorated, each boasts impressive vistas from private patio areas reached via French doors.

Nestled into some of the Garden Route’s most dramatic landscapes, Fynbos on Sea vacations are packed with mesmerizing vistas. The lodge is within touching distance of the golden sands and rolling waves of the Indian Ocean. But there’s also the glittering mass of Sedgefield Lagoon, and the forest-covered heights of the Tsitsikamma and Outeniqua mountain ranges beyond.

To these, you can add regular sightings of a rich array of wildlife, including zebra, eland, bushbuck, and waterbuck. Fynbos on Sea Lodge, offers an eco-friendly lodge in the Garden Route. Its grounds span 600 hectares of native fynbos reserve, and a Fynbos on Sea holiday offers plenty of opportunity for tranquil revitalisation in this area and beyond. Grab a book and settle on the sun loungers of the popular deck, wrapping around the heated outdoor swimming pool. Tuck into sumptuous South African and international cuisine in restaurant. Mark the amazing sunsets with a cocktail at the bar, or simply luxuriate in the comfort of your room.

Fynbos on Sea’s expansive grounds are woven with nature trails for anyone keen to experience hiking in the Garden Route. Its off-road trails 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 Fynbos on Sea, there are also opportunities to take to Swartvlei and Sedgefield Lagoons on kayaks. The beach is another option, as is the fascinating visit to a local protea farm. However, for the ultimate in adventure activities in the Garden Route, guests need look no further than paragliding.

Fynbos on Sea impact highlights

The limited number of rooms at Fynbos on Sea ensures it remains a low-impact lodge in the Garden Route. Fynbos on Sea provides much-needed jobs for the local communities of the area. Materials are sustainably sourced wherever possible, keeping consumption to a minimum. As such, the natural beauty of the Garden Route is celebrated in all Fynbos on Sea does. The interior décor is muted to allow nature to sing and restaurant dishes are made in-house from locally-sourced ingredients.

Finally, Fynbos on Sea’s protected grounds ensure the survival of the region’s flora and fauna. Fynbos is a family of plants which only exist in this part of South Africa and are increasingly threatened by farming and viticulture.
