Find a moment of tranquillity

A unique feature of our estate is the Zen Fynbos Garden. Here a magnificent array of endemic indigenous fynbos flourishes between ancient rocks and giant boulders, creating an ambience of gentle tranquillity. Spend a few serene moments at the meditation pond; touch the plants in the brush garden to release the exquisite fragrances.
