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.

Described by some as a sleepy little village, Sedgefield borders the Goukamma Nature Reserve and the Wilderness National Park, leaving visitors spoilt for choice when it comes to bird watching and walks through indigenous fauna and flora. Groenvlei Lake, the only fresh water lake in the district, lies to the east of Sedgefield and is popular for its Bass fishing. The lake forms part of the Goukamma Nature Reserve, which stretches from the river of the same name all the way to Buffalo Bay, and has some of the highest vegetated sand dunes in the country.
