Simola Golf and Country Estate

Located high up in the hills above the Garden Route town of Knysna (South Africa’s favourite holiday town), Simola Golf & Country Estate is a world apart.

Fairways merge seamlessly with lush indigenous vegetation and forests creating an evocative vista of undulating green hills and dales descending gently down to the Knysna River. From its vantage point, the 325-hectare Estate looks out a spectacular panorama encompassing the full expanse of the Knysna Lagoon, all the way to the Heads and beyond to the sea.

It is here in this sheltered haven that you may enjoy superb investments, golf, 5-Star accommodation, sumptuous meals and even a pampering at our Spa.
