Bringing together the seven towns of the Greater Swellendam Farming Community: Swellendam, Suurbraak, Barrydale, Buffeljagsrivier, Stormsvlei, Malgas and Cape Infanta, this area nestled on the Garden Route and R62, has a colourful history steeped in trade. Stretching from the Klein Karoo, Langeberg Mountains and Wine Routes to the Ocean at Koppie Alleen, each of our ‘dorpies’ has their own unique character, crafts and history to share. Swellendam is one of the biggest agricultural producing areas in South Africa, generating huge amounts of grain, Canola oil, meat & dairy as well as exporting Citrus, berries, Persimmons, wool and wine all over the world.
There is something for everyone, no matter if you’re a history buff, sports fanatic, wildlife fan, adrenaline junkie, birder, photographer, cyclist, wine and liqueur lover, foodie or just looking for a family break!
So if you are a curious explorer searching for your own definition of the good life, we hope that a visit to the Swellendam region will help you on that journey.
