Boskloof Swemgat is a highly recommended property for self catering in Clanwilliam for tourists visiting the Cederberg region.

About Boskloof Swemgat

The farm Boskloof Swemgat is situated in the Boskloof valley, a magnificent unspoiled area, bordering on the Cederberg Wilderness Area. The Jan Dissels River flows through the valley and the farm was named for a favourite river pool or "swemgat".

Accommodation

The accommodation is set along the river banks and guests can enjoy swimming and fishing in the clear, unpolluted river. We offer whitewashed, thatch-roofed cottages and pre-fab cottages, set in the tranquil farm landscape. All are well equipped, have full bathrooms and good quality bed linen and towels are provided. All five have indoor fireplaces/indoor braai facilities. Wood is for sale on the farm for your convenience.

Please see the individual unit descriptions with photographs below, to assist you with your choice.

Activities

Other activities include mountain biking and hiking, on farm roads or longer hikes – the start of the Krakadouw Trail being nearby. You can also do the rewarding hike to "Die Toring", a nearby peak - about 4 hours there and back.

In spring the valley turns into a spectacle of riotous colour when wild flowers carpet the landscape as far as the eye can see. Birds and wild life abound in the mostly organically farmed valley. The plaintive call of the Fish Eagle is often heard and small game spotted, like klipspringers, steenbokkies and dassies.

Bring your loved ones and spend quality time in this tranquil spot. If you are feeling more adventurous, you can explore the Cederberg, the coast at Lambert’s Bay, Wupperthal, Namaqualand and Clanwilliam from here.

Verified reviewvery good

Clean, comfortable, friendly. We stayed one night in Nenna and one night (with another family) in Gustav. Overall we had a wonderful weekend. The atmosphere is friendly and laid back and very peaceful. Both houses had very comfortable beds (although my son 6'1" tall, found the double bed a little short for him in Nenna) and the kitchens are well equipped as you'd expect. There was load shedding one evening but we cooked on the outside braai and enjoyed the stars . It's an amazing part of the country to visit - especially during the spring - and I recommend this as a good value for money, comfortable place to stay
