Sedgefield is renowned as being the Garden Route’s Slow Town, the emblem of which is a giant mosaic tortoise. The Slow Town Festival which takes place in April every year is a marvellous way to engage in the Sedgefield community. The events and activities range from art exhibitions, a beauty pageant, mosaic workshops, Mitchell’s beer tastings, a golf challenge, a chess tournament and even Victorian picnic accompanied by the sounds of a local Marimba-playing band.
Gerickes Point is one of the Garden Routes most precious beaches. There is a viewpoint overlooking the ocean and if you are there at the right time of year (around September/October), it is the perfect place to view southern right whales.
Other activities and highlights of the town is a Classic Car collection. It is a must-see when travelling to or through Sedgefield. Situated on the Main Road/N2, it hosts a large range of classic cars from different periods in motor history.
Book for your own guided walks (The Giant Kingfisher Trail) among indigenous coastal shrubbery and get a map of the Slow Town Tourist Route which will highlight the main touristic points of the town; a great activity you can do by foot.
The Swartvlei Rivermouth is a hit with locals. Boogie board with the incoming tide into the Swartvlei Lagoon. Children will tirelessly run up the shore and be carried down again with the incoming tide.

Brenton on Sea is a suburb about 15km’s from Knysna; travel along the N2 towards George and take a right after the White Bridge. The settlement cascades down sloping hills which eventually ends in a “far as the eye can see” white sanded beach. The settlement was named after Sir Jahleel Brenton, who declared Knysna a harbour in 1818. If you are lucky enough you may even be able to spot the endangered Brenton Blue Butterfly. With street names such as Agapanthus, Watsonia, Protea and Stinkhout the whole suburb is a testimony to the variety of both fauna and flora.
Adventure activities are countless at Brenton on Sea. Paraglide in safely off the top of a high hill (reachable only on foot) over the Indian Ocean or climb rocks that juts off the shore to fish for White Mussel Cracker, Garrick (Leerie), Kob and Grunter.
Brenton’s beach is not an ideal one for swimming and surfing because of the strong rip tides and rocks close to shore, but it is perfect for lazing on the beach or having a picnic. The kids will love looking for shells and might even catch a glimpse of jellyfish or blue bottles that have been washed up to shore.
If you’re feeling peckish after a fun-filled day, head up to Brenton’s choice of restaurants for a sundowner and snacks or a delicious pizza for something more substantial.
Are you travelling alone? Pack a picnic basket with cheese, biscuits and wine and sit on a wooden bench over-looking the Indian Ocean from one of the many spectacular viewpoints.
