Swartberg Country Manor is nestled on the farm “Voorbedacht” situated in the Cango Valley at the foot of the world-renowned Swartberg Pass.

The picturesque panoramic view of the Swartberg Mountains will bring comfort to anyone that wants to “get away from it all” and simply soak up the peace of its tranquil surroundings.

Meals are served in our spacious lounge or on the “stoep” (veranda) overlooking the spectacular Swartberg Mountains.

For those exquisite warm summer days, traditional South African delicacies will be prepared outside on open fires next to the swimming pool, along with refreshing beverages served from the bar.

“Voorbedacht” farm is a working farm, which offers our guests the unique opportunity to explore and experience the true essence of subsistence farming in the Little Karoo.

Daily walks on the farm allow guests to experience the peace and serenity of this beautiful valley. While for the more “wild at heart” mountain bikes are available, to explore the more rugged terrain.
