About Swellendam

The third oldest settlement in sunny South Africa, Swellendam is at the start of the Garden Route, and is the heart of the Overberg. Nestling at the foot of the majestic Langeberg mountains, it is renowned for its architecture and history.

Founded by the Dutch East India company in 1745, and named for the first governor of the Cape and his wife, the town flourished under British colonial rule, and blossomed into the jewel that it is today in a proud independent member of the Commonwealth of Nations.
