African Synergy is very pleased to welcome Fancourt Estate to our portfolio!

Ideally situated in the heart of The Garden Route, just seven kilometres from George Airport, Fancourt is superbly landscaped on 613 hectares of lush countryside with the majestic Outeniqua Mountains as the perfectly picturesque backdrop. 

Fancourt has become a global landmark for leisure, business and golfing travel but its gradual expansion entails an intriguing history dating back to the late 1800s. A national monument, The Manor House on Fancourt Estate, portrays a meticulously remodelled testament to the original Blanco House, while encompassing the distinctive air of a world-class, 21st century destination. Africa’s best romantic boutique hotel, The Manor House is the crown of the Fancourt Estate, exuding a feeling of mystery and exclusivity. 

Presenting a world of choice, Fancourt Resort Hotel is also situated on the vast estate. An exceptional blend of modern indulgence and classic elegance, Fancourt Resort Hotel comprises 115 luxurious rooms and suites that cater for every need – from families, individual travellers to golfing groups, conferences and special needs. 

As a destination in its own right, Fancourt offers a range of leisure activities at the resort and to easily accessible locations outside of the estate. Experiences include a Spa with an indoor heated Roman Bath, a Leisure Centre (home to the Kidz Club, teen lounge, gymnasium, cinema, indoor heated and outdoor swimming pool), tennis, running/walking trails, bird watching, fishing, glorious swimming beaches, mountain biking, horse riding, picnics and various sightseeing excursions to the scenic coastal towns of Knysna and Plettenberg Bay, as well as a must-see visit to the historic town of Oudtshoorn. And, yes, the estate is home to some esteemed golf courses… A choice of three Gary Player-designed golf courses to be exact; all ranked in the Top 15 in South Africa. 

If a little ‘birdie’ told you that Fancourt was only about golf, you may need to ‘putter’ that thought right out of your mind, and look at increasing the number of nights to stay, to fully discover and appreciate the Fancourt experience!
