Birdwatchers' Paradise

Sedgefield lies between Knysna and George. Here bird watchers are offered a treasure trove of beautiful species from many different eco-environments.

Stop for the annual Slow Festival

Beautiful from every viewpoint, Sedgefield was declared Africa’s first Cittaslow town in October 2010. Inspired by the concept of ‘slow food’ (think the opposite of ‘fast food’), Cittaslow is a worldwide organisation that promotes a better quality of life and a resistance to fast-lane lifestyles. Cittaslow, literally translated as ‘slow city’, originated in Italy and now represents around 100 towns all over the world. Adhering to values aimed at improving quality of life, registered Cittaslow towns and villages celebrate diversity of cultures and promote the specialties of their own people and surroundings. Sedgefield’s Slow Festival is held during the Easter break and designed to celebrate the real things in life - wholesome goodness, family, friends, fun, the outdoors and great food.
