Facilities on the Estate
Simbithi Eco Estate has a variety of facilities available to Home Owners. Community Centre facilities are for the use of owners and a limited number of their guests only. The facilities may be used by all residents. Exclusive use is not permitted, and access by all owners to the facilities is permitted. No one owner may claim right of use of part of a centre over another owner.
Private use of the facilities by outsiders is not permitted.
No commercial activities may be conducted at any community centre. The Simbithi Country Club is able to host such activities. As Community Centres are primarily for the use of owners, they are not to be considered as venues for regular entertainment of non-owner guests, which should be done at private residences, or the Club.
Community centres may be used for social activities laid on by the Association for the benefit of owners and residents.
The Community Centres are DAY TIME facilities only. Owners need to vacate the centres by 21h00. Note that certain events authorised by the Association may continue beyond this time.

Adventure Golf Course
This facility, donated by WBHO, is situated adjacent to the Heron Dam Community Centre. WBHO created the adventure golf course after much deliberation to provide something, a little bit extra, for the families who so enjoy living at Simbithi. The adventure golf course is a 3 par, 18 hole course and will provide a lot of entertainment for all ages!!
Simbithi Equestrian Centre
The 17 stables allow residents to stable their horses close by and enjoy riding in this beautiful and safe environment. This development has added to the country feel of Simbithi where families can come down to visit the horses. There is a club house overlooking the arena and a lawn area in front where residents can get together and braai. The stables are run by a resident along with the team of grooms. The equestrian centre includes a tack room, feeding rooms, office, groom’s quarters, nine paddocks, a large arena with jumps and a lunging ring.
Simbithi Eco-Estate boasts a diverse range of habitats. These include coastal forests, swamp forests, grassland, dams, streams and wetlands. We have a wide variety of fauna and flaura. Bushbuck, Duiker, Large-spotted Genet, Lesser Bush baby, Vervet Monkeys, Scrub Hare and a variety of Mongoose species are among the many types of wildlife which can be seen within the Estate. We have recently completed an upgrade on the walking trails on the Estate, all walking trails have been cut and boardwalks installed in areas where past access would have been impossible. These trails meander through the swamp forests, grasslands and the other habitats which are on the Estate. Contact SEEHOA to obtain your copy of our walking trail guide.
Fishing is allowed on the Estate, but is only allowed on a catch and release basis and the dams are well stocked with selected species of tilapia and certain dams are stocked with Bass.
Fishing is not allowed in the golf course dams.

Dams, Indigenous Forests and Grasslands
A network of dams creates the opportunity for a range of wonderful and serene leisure activities. Bird life is already abundant and birdwatchers will be able to take advantage of secluded spots to observe and appreciate their interactions. The indigenous forest belts are home to a number of smaller buck species such as bushbuck and the rare blue and grey duiker. The grasslands play host to introduced species such as iImpala. Simbithi has a number of open spaces that will also allow for walks, runs and a general sense of living in an ecologically sensitive environment. A strict garden landscaping protocol will also ensure that the wide open spaces allow full growth of the course into pristine condition.
Within Simbithi Eco Estate we have dedicated a parking area to allow for beach access to Thompson’s Bay beach. You can park your car or golf cart at the turnstile gate and walk about 400m to Thompson’s Bay beach (a small walk for the more active!)
