Swellendam through the eyes of Locals

Swellendam through the eyes of Locals

Xplorio Headquarters

Caught between the majestic Langeberg Mountains and the bountiful Breede River, lies the beautiful town of Swellendam. Surrounded by a patchwork of wheat and canola, and farmlands dotted with grazing sheep, this historic town is a true home of heritage and natural beauty.

Home to the well-preserved Drostdy Museum and 4 nearby nature reserves, namely Bontebok National Park, Marloth Nature Reserve, Grootvadersbosch Nature Reserve and De Hoop Nature Reserve, Swellendam offers a world of activities for all ages. The diverse landscapes also give way to exceptional hiking and mountain biking trails as well as more leisurely fishing, horse riding and river cruises. The streets are also lined with beautifully preserved and renovated Cape Dutch style buildings, many of which house cosy accommodations and welcoming restaurants. The Republic of Swellendam holds so much to explore and experience.

But don’t take our word for it, here is a look at the coastal towns of Swellendam through the eyes of our listers:
