About Swellendam Hiking Trail

The Swellendam Hiking Trail, situated in the Langeberg, starts at the forestry station, 3km outside of the Swellendam town, and is of the few trails that many hikers are yet to conquer.

Said to be the ‘must’ on any hikers bucket list, the hiking trail is tough and advised for only those serious more fit hikers. The entire trail takes 6 days to complete, however, shorter routes are available for those beginner hikers still set out for a challenge.

The route leads through intimidating cliffs and uneven gorges making this adventure more exciting.

Managed by the Cape Nature Conservation, the 81km trail consists mainly of Fynbos, although plenty of bird life and on occasion, wild game have been spotted. Amidst the 6 day trail, hikers can enjoy swimming in streams and are provided with overnight cabins that cater for groups of up to 22 persons.
