Fynbos Ridge

JJ Lang

"Perfect! That is all we can say. Quiet, Beautiful, every last detail thought of, and all very understated so that it felt like it was really no trouble at all for everything to be perfect."

Diane Hanbury

Fynbos Ridge: This was a relaxing and beautiful setting. It was very quiet and the staff and owners were wonderful and knowledgeable. Food was also outstanding. They upgraded us to a cottage (two bedrooms, 2 bathrooms etc). They invited us to eat wit h their family one night (which was unexpected). We had a lovely time and they told us a lot about African culture etc. It was a real learning experience. We would return and recommend.
