Sedgefield is a small village and lake in the Western Cape of South Africa.

Get in

By train

The train that runs between George and Knysna via Sedgefield and Wilderness is known as the Outeniqua Choo-Tjoe [1], and is the last-remaining scheduled steam-hauled train service in South Africa. It is a not-to-be-missed experience ; the scenery along the route is stupendous, and includes the Kaaimans River bridge (the most-photographed railway bridge in the world) and the bridge over the Knysna lagoon.

The railway station is just north of town. There are two or three trains a day to George (in the west) and Knysna (in the east).

Unfortunately, due to heavy rainfall and flooding in 2006, this train service has been suspended until further notice.

By bus

All the major bus companies that ply the Cape Town-Port Elizabeth route stop in Sedgefield.

By car

The N2 national road from George (to the west) and Knysna (to the east) runs through the centre of town.
