Property Description

Swellendam Backpackers, established in 1995, is within easy walking distance of the local shops, banks and a variety of exquisite Swellendam Restaurants. Situated in a ambient part of the village, on a large property with its own gurgling mountain stream and close to the Marloth Nature Reserve to enjoy birding and hiking, it is a green paradise and a lovely and safe choice to relax and recharge.

The lodge has an established vegetable garden from which you can purchase seasonal produce or get your hands dirty and help with daily garden tasks.

Swellendam is centrally located to all of the adventure activities of the Overberg, but here it is all about mountain horse riding, at its best. We depart from our stables in the mountain every morning to explore the foothills of the Marloth Nature Reserve.

For Novice riders we offer a walking trip and advanced riders a trot and canter excursion. All rides are guided and we provide hats.

Latest Review

" We arrived and were greated nicely. Couldn't pay with card as says in advertisement. Wifi costs 30R pp per device name and is only available in main house. Didn't try it since 3G is available and we had South African numbers. It was raining the day we were there and the roof leaked in one spot. Very damp in the morning and it was a cold night. Left early so no comment on tours or surroundings. "
