Situated above the quaint town of Sedgefield, along the Garden Route, this eco paradise offers sweeping views over beaches, mountains, lagoons and a fynbos-clad landscape. Perched high on the dunes overlooking the Indian Ocean, the 9-room lodge and a self-contained cottage is surrounded by a 600-hectare pristine fynbos reserve. A feast for the eyes, the estate abounds with plains game including eland, zebra, bushbuck and waterbuck. A wonderful escape from the Garden Route trail, Simbavati on Sea offers a still and serene immersion into nature’s wonder. Meander along nature trails, enjoy a picnic or sundowners overlooking Gerickes Point, or simply lie and revel in spectacular sunrises and sunsets. When you fancy a change of pace, take a mountain bike and choose from a variety of off-road trails. Nearby, explore fossil dunes and beaches, kayak on the Swartvlei and Sedgefield lagoons, snorkel the rockpools at low tide during summer.
