Simbithi is a 430 conserve garden known as an Eco Estate and the first of its kind in the area: nature’s gate to lush indigenous flora, rolling hills and wetlands.

The Estate is very visitor-friendly, allowing families an unforgettable touch and taste of nature at its finest. A diversity of habitats makes for some interesting hiking trails and wildlife watching.
