Situated along the beautiful Garden Route

If you’re a fan of the beach, Hartenbos Seefront is the right spot for you.

The beautiful beach is literally a couple of metres away from all of our other facilities and entertainment, so you can enjoy the salty sea breeze and amazing sunsets right on your door step.

Thousands of visitors from all over the country value precious moments together at Hartenbos, and we want to continue to grow our family and build on our rich cultural history and background.
