Sunbird Lodge & Fynbos Reserve


Welcome to the Sunbird Lodge & Fynbos Reserve, your home away from home for a truly peaceful, picturesque and memorable stay.

The lodge, nestled amongst rare fynbos, is situated on Napier Mountain which boasts breathtaking views of the surrounding region. Your hosts, Stephen and Olwyn, will ensure you have the perfect stay and that you are very well looked after. As a FGASA qualified field guide, Stephen is also happy to conduct Fynbos educational walks and tours on the farm, providing amazing insight into the lives of the beautiful Fynbos.

You can choose to simply relax in the sun taking in the sights of the endless rolling hills, or you can explore the reserve. There are over 50 species of birds to spot or the occasional shy buck, tortoise or hare. After the sun has set, you can indulge in some stargazing with a sky that's uninterrupted by any city lights.

As we are at the gateway to the Overberg region, the lodge is an excellent base to explore the fascinating southernmost point of Africa. Should you want to explore the rest of the region, a 45-minute drive will lead you to the secluded white, sandy beaches of Arniston / Waenhuiskrans, the art and craft markets of Bredasdorp or whale-watching in De Hoop.

This is the perfect getaway for unwinding and relaxing, and is suitable for any type of retreat for a romantic couple or a family trip.

Fynbos Reserve

We are situated on Napier Mountain in a declared CapeNature conservancy. Visitors will be charmed by the wild and beautiful Fynbos that we are defending from encroaching alien invasives such as pine and gum trees.


We are located above the picturesque village of Napier - the gateway to the Overberg. Napier is 160km away from Cape Town via the N2 and R316.
