Spring parties, workshops, visitors and other events

Along with Spring came a stream of guests and visitors. Apart from past individual posts (Janice & David wedding, APC, SAFCEI and the Children’s Literature Retreat), the following groups, guests and visitors have come to Fynbos between September and end of November.

Book Club Getaway

A group of visitors from Somerset West and Stellenbosch held one of their book club getaways here and alongside plenty of interesting debate, went wining and dining and walking in the mountain.


I would like to thank you all for such a lovely weekend at your beautiful farm. It must be wonderful living there. And the food was superb, thanks to the chef as well.

The fynbos, lovely scenery and all the luxury of a good – no excellent - establishment. Thank you! We enjoyed it thoroughly.

Thandi’s 30th

Thandi Davies had a leisurely 30th weekend with friends and family partying and chilling on the farm. We weren’t here ourselves, but by all accounts it was a great success.


I want to thank you for the most WONDERFUL weekend stay at your absolutely beautiful, warm, friendly, welcoming farm for my birthday weekend last weekend.
We all had the most special time, and all want to come back! The house is absolutely beautiful and we all fell in love with it
!I loved your farm so much that I was even thinking of coming to woof with you ... So I hope that that might be able to happen someday!

Tantric Retreat

A good deal of deep and hard work happened at the 3 day tantric retreat run by Australian facilitator, Andrew Barnes. The change in the energy of participants over the period was quite remarkable.

The place is beautiful and great hospitality
Awesome.! Loved the puppy, bees, birds and trees!

Great food, great hosts second time and even better in summer

Lovely stay. The vegetarian food so excellent

Clicks Year end

This year we were too booked up to have more than a few yearend functions – one of which was Clicks from Brackenfell who enjoyed a day of braaing and swimming.

The Presence Retreat

“This retreat” says facilitator Natalia Baker, “was designed to gently and powerfully peel away the outer layers that prevent you from experiencing and living the awareness, simplicity, wisdom and love of the Presence, your essence”

Nalalia plans to run this retreat next year at Fynbos. If you are interested in finding out more contact • 021-7882900


Thank you for caring so well for us again. Wonderful meals and caring considerate hospitality

I love your donkeys and goats and the way the love oozes out of every grapevine. Thank you.

Hi Diana, Thank you so much for your hospitality; we truly had a wonderful time.

I love the way the wind sings through the trees.
I think it is my favourite about Fynbos.
