The sleepy seaside hamlet of Sedgefield is one of the best kept secrets the scintillating Garden Route has to offer. Well away from the hustle and bustle of city life, there is no traffic here, no noise pollution, and mercifully no congestion making Sedgefield one heck of a holiday location. This beautiful coastal village finds itself between George and Knysna and less than 500km from the Mother City of Cape Town. Sedgefield is a dynamic and picturesque kaleidoscope of undulating lush fertility featuring the Indian Ocean, the Swartvlei Estuary, fynbos, lakes, sand dunes, and pine plantations. Its immense natural beauty is quite overwhelming and the ambience it exudes is tranquil and serene. Avid nature lovers will immediately fall in love with Sedgefield because it is nestled between the glorious natural spectacles of the Wilderness National Park and the Goukamma Nature Reserve meaning the bird watching is excellent and the wildlife abundant and plentiful. It goes without saying that walks and hikes are of immense pleasure in this part of the world with many of the trails and routes taking you through a variety of indigenous flora that is especially illustrious during the spring months when the entire landscape is transformed into a magical flower haven. Water sports are an extremely popular pastime here in Sedgefield with the Swartvlei Estuary being a top spot for avid anglers, while the lake is also safe enough to enjoy swimming. Finally, Sedgefield has in recent times earned itself as a top paragliding destination amongst paragliders as it hosts the annual ‘Paragliding Fly In’ competition which occurs every September in tandem with the Sedgefield Lakes Festival.
