We have thoroughly enjoyed the versatility involved in hosting these two workshops over the last weeks


Cape Town based company OfferZen, which is a marketplace for the hiring of software developers, came to Fynbos to do their year’s planning and to team build. It was a delight to see so many young talented people excited and committed to what they are doing.

Of their company OfferZen says: We are changing the way developers find work in South Africa, and working hard to help improve the developer ecosystem along the way.  We flip the normal recruitment model around, so instead of developers applying for jobs, companies send them interview requests with upfront salary.  We find companies are looking for Frontend and Backend developers, Product owners, DevOps Engineers, Mobile Developers and QA/Test Engineers.  If you are interested in learning more, go to

And how did they like Fynbos for their event?Apart from numerous oohs! and aahs! from individual participants about the food and the wine, the gardens, the houses and the views, Bianca the coordinator of the event had this to say:Fynbos was an ideal place for our planning and teambuilding workshop. It is beautiful and peaceful with lots of space for the group to do what it needed and wanted to do. There was a large venue for us all and many breakaway spaces. The accommodation was comfortable in lovely houses, the food and wine were excellent and the hosts were very friendly and helpful.


Trusha Lakana came here from Durban once again to run yoga and cleansing retreat.  This is the third time this particular retreat has been here and it was great to witness from a distance the mediations and yoga and the lovely clear laughter that grew day by day as participants went through what was, it seemed, quite a challenging process. As always Vena cooked for the group and made good use of Johan’s HUGE pots to make delicious vegetarian food.

Art of Living is a widespread national and international organisation that offers all kinds of holistic events and retreats throughout the country. You can find out more about them on

As always people were so gracious and appreciative or our space and commented on the love and authenticity of Fynbos. This is music to our ears. Sabine who coordinated the retreat gave more formal feedback.

This is a special place and we all know it. The pavilion is a fantastic venue for this work and the views and gardens and pool are beautiful. The houses were excellent and the farmhouse kitchen and verandas wonderful for cooking and for eating. Diana and the fynbos team were accommodating and friendly. There is such a sense of peace here.
