Jaguar


For over 90 years we have pushed the boundaries of what is possible, inspired by our founder, Sir William Lyons. He insisted that every car the company produced combined performance and beauty like no other. His uncompromising vision set new benchmarks that we still live by.

We’re continuing that tradition with the launch of the new F-TYPE. This definitive two-seater sports car continues a revered bloodline that began with the C, D and E-Types. The latter is an enduring icon, still considered the most beautiful car in the world, it defined the market that F-TYPE is redefining today.

The Jaguar DNA is instantly recognisable across our range – there is an unmistakable purity of line that runs through all of our models. Agile and powerful; sleek and seductive; confident and instinctive: all these qualities are reflected in our cars.

As a company, Jaguar is very much alive. We’re proud of our role in the global and British economies – creating thousands of jobs while pursuing automotive excellence in the UK and around the world. With a deep commitment to our founding principles, Jaguar will remain at the forefront of the luxury automotive industry for years to come.

“The car is the closest thing we will ever create to something that is alive,”
Sir William Lyons – Founder of Jaguar

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.
