Budget Getaways Review

An unspoilt natural and birders paradise draped across 40ha along the Swartvlei River, Fynbosvlei offers two rustic log cabins perched on the northern banks.

Each has its own charm. The larger of the two can sleep eight across three bedrooms. The cabin has two bathrooms, a huge pantry, lounge and dining room – not to mention amazing mountain views from all sides.

Fynbosvlei's smaller log cabin is a secluded little sanctuary for two, with bedroom, bathroom, living area and intimate kitchenette. Two children can be accommodated on a roll-away bed (by prior arrangement).

There is a private jetty, a bird hide, and 500m of prime river frontage for you to enjoy. Less than 5km from the center of Sedgefield, you'll feel like you're on a whole different planet - but with easy access to the mothership. 

Whether it be a romantic escape or happy days with the family, Fynbosvlei gets the BG heads-up.
