Visit Swellendam

Is this a website or a blog? I am uncertain. 5 Years ago it started out as a blog with my favourite cycle routes and activities in Swellendam. I only listed a few places to stay. Those lists grew. Then when I was contracted by the Municipality in Dec 2016 I listed every activity, eatery and accommodation in the 7 towns of the Swellendam Municipality, sourcing the photos and info on my own. 

Since my contract was not renewed, I have been spending a lot of time thinking about the future of this website/blog. My options included crashing the site. It also included listing everybody, the way that I have been doing for the past few years.


In the two days since sending the email to everybody listed on the site (Wednesday 7 Oct 2020) I have come to realise that even though I want to help everybody by listing them, this is not possible. I no longer represent everybody with a tourism related business located in the Swellendam Municipal area. Ever since I started this website my main goal was to represent The Good Life in Swellendam. To list activities, restaurants, accommodation, etc. that I believe will ensure that people experience the Good life in Swellendam. If I listed everybody, my opinion will lose its credibility. If I listed everybody, the website becomes just another cluttered, listing site. 

If this explanation is confusing and frustrating - I am truly sorry. 

But if you still want to be listed, send me an email with your info. I will check it out and get back to you.
