The Area

Lying between George and Knysna on the Garden Route and 490 km from Cape Town, Sedgefield is a beautiful seaside village, surrounded entirely by lakes, sand dunes covered in fynbos, pine plantations, and the Indian Ocean.

Located a mere five-hour drive, or one hour’s flight to George, from Cape Town, this homely 3-star guest farm, situated only 15km from Sedgefield, is close enough for a weekend getaway and far enough for a well-deserved escape on the Garden Route.

Swartvlei Equestrian Estate is synonymous with peace and harmony with the magnificent views surrounding you with highlights such as the Outeniqua mountain range and Swartvlei lake.

Swartvlei Equestrian Estate is the perfect destination, as we offer guests a range of activities, including abseiling, rock climbing, dune challenges, bird watching, canoeing, sunset boat cruises, mountain biking and picnics are just to name a few not to mention the reputable oysters of the area.
