Fancourt is situated in the heart of the Garden Route, one of the most picturesque areas in the world. The suitable named 200km-long stretch along the Southern Coast of South Africa offers beautiful and diverse flora and fauna, coupled with a mild Mediterranean-like climate. Along with being the golfing Mecca of South Africa, the area offers a wide variety of things to do, from exploring meandering hiking trails to swimming, boating, and fishing in the surrounding ocean, lakes and rivers.
Other Wildlife Excursions
Apart from viewing the big 5, the Garden Route offers a variety of wildlife excursions including getting up close to birdlife on walkways at the Birds of Eden or the hysterical monkey antics of Monkeyland. You could even ride one of the biggest birds in the World at The Cango Ostrich Farm or enjoy something a little more adventurous like wild-cat encounters (including Cheetah) at the Tenikwa Wildlife Awareness Centre. Whale watching –especially during the months of August- November and Dolphin viewing are popular day excursions.
