Swellendam
is located in the Overberg area of the Western Cape of South Africa.

Being situated on the N2 highway roughly half way between Cape Town and the Garden Route, Swellendam is often used as an overnight spot. Since we usually prefer to meander rather than tear down the main road, we more often include here when passing between the De Hoop down on the coast and Calitzdorp to the north.

The majority of our guests tend to simply stop in Swellendam for lunch and a quick wander around the museum, but those wishing to spend longer in the town, to walk in the nearby reserves and explore local wineries will find a pretty decent range of accommodation.


De Kloof Estate ... is the highest quality accommodation in town, a very pleasant owner-run lodge set to the west of the main street.

Schoone Oordt House ... is a very pleasant and friendly option centred on a lovely old house at the north end of the high street and with accommodation in modern buildings ranged in the grounds.
