Swellendam is one of the oldest towns of South Africa and has much to offer to visitors: charming historical buildings, the famous open-air Drostdy Museum, a beautiful golf course, excellent restaurants, shops and art-and-craft projects are just a few examples.
On the fringe of the town, you will find the Bontebok National Park and the Marloth Nature Reserve; nature parks that provide various possibilities for hiking, horse riding, and bird watching.
There is an endless selection of activities and day trips to choose from. A visit to the De Hoop Nature Reserve to see the whales, or a drive to the southernmost point of the continent in Cape Agulhas. Canoeing on the Breede River, or a day trip through the Little Karoo with its charming rural villages.
A wine tasting trip through the towns of Robertson, Bonnievale and Ashton is also recommended: flower fringed roads, spectacular vineyards and world-class wines. This Robertson Wine Route represents about 50 wineries - from small family owned boutique wineries to medium state-of-the-art estates and large modern wineries.
