About Swellendam Country Lodge

Swellendam Country Lodge offers quality accommodation in a stylish and friendly atmosphere. It is a well-liked base to explore this beautiful part of South Africa. But it is also a perfect place to unwind, a place to discover and enjoy. The six comfortable guest rooms are surrounded by large gardens with many South African plants and birds to enjoy. A unique setting.

Swellendam Country Lodge has many repeat visitors and it is a recommended place-to-stay in various travel guides.

Secluded in the garden is a large sparkling pool for the warm summer days. Generous breakfasts are served outside on the veranda of the main house, or indoors near the fireplace on a winter morning. For lunch or dinner you can stroll to the terrace of one of the restaurants next door to enjoy their good country food. Other excellent restaurants and shops are nearby.

Swellendam is 2.5 hours from Cape Town, and is bordering on the Garden Route and the Route 62. The coast and the little Karoo are within easy reach.


In the garden, separate from the main house, are four rooms. Another two garden-rooms are situated on the position of the former coach-house - ‘die waenhuis'. The accommodation is surrounded by yellowwood trees, fruit trees and palms. All rooms have a private entrance and an own veranda overlooking the beautiful garden.

You will enjoy the friendly environment and the variety of colourful South African plants and birds. The guest rooms have an elegant atmosphere with natural lines and colours, and modern fixtures. Each room is decorated with an eye for detail.


A generous breakfast is served outside on the veranda of the Guest House, or indoors near the fireplace on that few cold winter mornings.

Activities and day trips

Swellendam Country Lodge is a comfortable stopover on your way between Cape Town, and destinations along the Garden Route or the Route 62. More and more visitors are staying for a longer period of time to experience the ‘true feel’ of this beautiful part of the Western Cape.

Swellendam is one of the oldest towns of South Africa and has much to offer to visitors: charming historical buildings, the famous open-air Drostdy Museum, a beautiful golf course, excellent restaurants, shops and art-and-craft projects are just a few examples.

On the fringe of the town, you will find the Bontebok National Park and the Marloth Nature Reserve; nature parks that provide various possibilities for hiking, horse riding, and bird watching.

There is an endless selection of activities and day trips to choose from. A visit to the De Hoop Nature Reserve to see the whales, or a drive to the southernmost point of the continent in Cape Agulhas. Canoeing on the Breede River, or a day trip through the Little Karoo with its charming rural villages.

A wine tasting trip through the towns of Robertson, Bonnievale and Ashton is also recommended: flower fringed roads, spectacular vineyards and world-class wines. This Robertson Wine Route represents about 50 wineries - from small family owned boutique wineries to medium state-of-the-art estates and large modern wineries.

Swellendam Country Lodge offers detailed route descriptions and other services should you need assistance in planning your day trips.
