Swellendam

Swellendam is a lush town at the foot of the Langeberg Mountains. Many of the buildings in the oak lined streets are colonial and Swellendam is the third oldest town in South Africa. With a moderate temperature the gardens are green and luxuriant and walking through the streets of this town is a joy.

The Buffeljachts Dam allows for much entertainment. Taking a sunset cruise on the sparkling water aboard a fully kitted-out double decker wooden raft is an unforgettable  experience. A catering service is available and a braai on board can also be arranged.

This town is home to its very own magical Faerie Sanctuary which is open every day except Mondays, when the faeries take time to rest.  It is also home to many famous artists who get inspiration from these beautiful surrounds. The Drostdy Museum Complex is worth a visit to gain some insight into the town's history.

Horse -riding, gliding, canoeing, mountain-biking and waterskiing are but some of the activities Swellendam has to offer. For the more extreme traveller, there is a fuffi-slide and watersnake. One can also go for a ride on a motor-glider and take a twenty minute flight alongside the birds, soaring above the majestic Langeberg mountains.
