About Swellendam

You'll find Swellendam in South Africa's Western Cape province, waiting to surprise you with the variety of things it has to offer travellers. It's a lovely area with its own nature reserve, national park, museum and even its own stretch of the Breede River!

Swellendam is definitely a town that has a small-town character about it. Just what you need on a trip that takes you away from your regular urban-jungle.
