Sunbird Lodge & Fynbos Reserve, a nature lovers paradise, where you will be treated to unparalleled views of the Southern Overberg from our mountainside retreat.
The owner is a FGASA qualified field guide and is most happy to conduct Fynbos educational walks and tours on the farm, providing amazing insight into the lives of the beautiful Fynbos. The reserve is also part of the Napier Mountain Conservancy.
You can choose to simply relax in the sun, taking in the sights of the endless rolling hills, or you can explore the reserve. There are over 50 bird species to spot or the occasional shy buck, tortoise or hare. After the sun has set, you can indulge in some stargazing into a sky uninterrupted by city lights.
ERICA is a fully equipped thatched roof cottage which has a comfortable double bed (bedding and towels provided) and en suite bathroom with shower. There is accommodation for two guests.
RESTIO is a newly built, tastefully decorated, fully equipped, self-catering unit with spectacular views of the surrounding countryside.
