African Shades
African Shades is a unique Guest House located in the beautiful, historic town of Swellendam, right across from the Drostdy Museum. Expect a warm welcome, clean, spacious rooms, super comfortable beds and luxurious cotton percale linen.

We offer 6 en-suite rooms all with separate entrances and private patios.

Our swimming pool has stunning mountain views and offers welcome relief for those hot, summer days.

Restaurant:
African Shades Restaurant is the ideal place to stop over for a meal. With plenty of garden & outside
stoep seating on offer for those long hot summer afternoons and a roaring fireplace inside for those
chilli winter days.

Using only the freshest available ingredients, we always take pride in ensuring that every plate of food
looks and tastes great.

As a family run business, we pride ourselves in always providing friendly, personal service.
