Sedgefield lies at the centre of the Garden Route lakes district at the estuary of the major Swartvlei Lake, a mecca for fishermen and water sport enthusiasts. Surrounding indigenous woodland offers magnificent walking, hiking, and mountain biking. The bird list is impressive, and hang gliders float like butterflies from the hill tops. A short course provides for the golfers and abseiling, scuba diving, and surfing can be enjoyed close by. Nearby Buffalo Bay is the safest beach in the southern Cape, and smaller children can enjoy the tranquil waters of the Sedgefield lagoon, while parents relax close by on the beach. It is a paradise for all.
