General Information

Swellendam connects the Overberg with the Garden Route and is an attractive town with the Koornlands River running through it.  Beautifully historic sitting at the base of the Langeberg mountains near to the R62’s Tradouw Pass, Swellendam is in the perfect location from where to explore the surrounding areas.  

As South Africa’s third oldest town, Swellendam is steeped in history with its historic buildings such as the Drostdy and the majestic Moederkerk, both of which are well-known landmarks in the town.

The restaurants, coffee shops and farm stalls all offer delicious meals and goodies for travelers, while the museum provides fascinating information on the area.  The Hermitage Valley is the largest young berry producer in South Africa, and tourists are able to visit some of the farms and taste the locally produced liqueur and berry products.  

Surrounded by nature reserves hiking is a popular past-time - bring your binoculars as the birdlife is amazing!  There is a kaleidoscope of flora and fauna providing great photographic opportunities.  The three reserves that are near Swellendam are; the Bontebok National Park, Marloth Nature Reserve and the expansive De Hoop Nature Reserve.

If you in the mood for something different, there is a famous fairy sanctuary in town.  Complete with all things magical - from fairies and mermaids, to pixies and gnomes, the gardens are a delight for all ages and well-worth the visit.

Swellendam is a peaceful town even in the busy seasons.  Whether you are here for the day, the weekend or longer, Swellendam will provide you with an unforgettable experience …

Activities

‚ÄčOutdoor adventures and activities include backpacking in the mountains, tour the wine route of the Breede River Valley, Montague and the Klein Karoo.

A picturesque 9 hole golf course with magnificent views of the Langeberg Mountains can be found just outside the town.

Other activities in the area include: canoeing, water-skiing and the “watersnake”on the Buffeljachts Dam.  The area is a nature lover's dream with an abundance of wild flowers and Fynbos to be seen. The 250ha indigenous forest at Grootvadersbosch is the most noteworthy in the South Western Cape. Woods like these are a rare find in the Cape province, so far West of the Knysna forests.
