I felt very welcome right from the beginning. The staff is great and I had 3 very relaxed days there. They are building at the moment but only during the day so u don´t really have to bother with it since u don´t want to spent your whole day at the Backpackers. Swellendam is a nice place to go for a hike, do a horse ride and suck in the landscape. I liked staying there and would go again. Keep it up cheers!!!

Halfway between Cape Town and the Garden Route it is ideally situated to hike or horse ride through indigenous forests or wander through the picturesque village. Beneath the most spectacular peaks of the Langeberg Mountains Swellendam is the 3rd oldest magisterial district in South Africa with plenty of inspiring and peaceful experiences. Sit around our welcome fire under starry skies and enjoy the countryside. ... more less
