We stayed at Swartsberg Country Manor for two nights and we really enjoyed it.
The host was incredibly hospitable.........came to greet us when we pulled up, invited us for a drink, took care of our bags........took every effort to make us feel welcome.
The dinner was excellent as well, with a good choice and a fine wine selection. It was really enjoyable sitting on the balcony afetr dinner, sipping wine.
The location is quite remote, but i think that makes it that extra bit special.
I wish we had a 4x4 to get up the Swartberg Pass, as the road up to it was ina bad way following teh weather..............still, getting up so far was still cool. The Kongo Caves are near by as well, and we enjoyed that. The Kango Wildlife Ranch is a must visit.................playing with the four month old tiger cubs was amazing!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- 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.The farm was purchased in 2003 and welcomed its first guests in February 2005. The extraordinary views of the Swartberg Mountain from the veranda of the original farmhouse compelled us to create a venue where more people could share in the tranquillity and serenity of this beautiful valley."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. Among the various agricultural products farmed, we also farm livestock such as, cattle, sheep and ostriches. 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. ... more less
