Activities and Attractions

Surrounded by three national parks - Bontebok National Park, Marloth Mountain reserve, and De Hoop Nature Reserve, Swellendam is a place to spend much more than one night. In the picturesque historical town of Swellendam itself there is the Drostdy Museum and Old Gaol complex, and some excellent restaurants. Nearby there is quad biking, hot springs, horse riding, a fuffi slide, beautiful dams and scenic walks, the Tradouw Pass, and many superb wine farms. Impangele now has a farm style plunge pool available for you to cool down after your busy day(s).

There is plenty to see and do, and one of the best things about Swellendam, is there is virtually no crime and everybody is very relaxed, friendly and peaceful! If you let them know in advance, Beauty, Impangele’s housekeeper, will cook you a traditional Xhosa meal.

Your hosts, David and Amanda Shackley, will warmly welcome you to their beautiful home in Swellendam, the third oldest town in South Africa.

Warm, friendly welcome. A lovely clean, well equipped and spacious self catering cottage. We had breakfast overlooking a lovely garden and wished our stay was going to be longer! Very relaxing and would definitely recommend Impangele!
