    As one of the oldest towns in South Africa, Swellendam is well known for its many historical buildings and rich history. In particular, the town’s well-preserved Cape Dutch vernacular buildings give an insight into the area’s colonial past. However, the area’s history is also made up of centuries of human settlement before the arrival of the Dutch in Cape Town in the mid-1700s.

    Situated at the foot of one of the Western Cape’s most prominent mountain ranges, Swellendam is a prime location for hiking and walking. In addition to the Marloth Nature Reserve right next door to the town of Swellendam with its variety of walking trails and scenic offerings, the greater Swellendam area is home to a few nature reserves and marine protected areas.

  • Days 4 - 6


    Hotel: 4* River Manor Boutique Hotel, Langebaan Bed & Breakfast

    Stellenbosch is a town in the Western Cape province of South Africa, situated about 50 kilometres east of Cape Town, along the banks of the Eerste River. It is the second oldest European settlement in the province, after Cape Town. The town became known as the City of Oaks due to the large number of oak trees that were planted by its founder, Simon van der Stel, to grace the streets and homesteads. 
    You can visit the city, or just relax in your accommodation during this day.
  • Days 8 - 11

    Plettenberg Bay

    Or go and see the wild cats at Tenikwa Wildlife Awareness Centre, and if you like the more slithery things they even have a Snake and Crocodile sanctuary.  Not to mention a little further up the road there is the HIGHEST bungy in the world and the Treetops Canopy tours …
    From a boat-based whale and dolphin trip around the bay with Ocean Blue Adventures, to walks on the Robberg Peninsula.  Discover the midden at Nelson’s Cave which traces humankind back over 100 000 years!  Or you might like to take a little boat up the Keurbooms River.
