Regarded as South Africa's third-oldest town, Swellendam contains over 50 provincial heritage sites and well-preserved examples of Cape Dutch architecture.
You've now added Bontebok National Park to your itinerary. You'll visit kid-friendly attractions like Waenhuiskrans Nature Reserve and Birds Paradise. Change things up with these side-trips from Swellendam: St Mildred's Chapelry (in Montagu) and De Hoop Nature Reserve (in Bredasdorp). There's much more to do: take an in-depth tour of Drostdy Museum, view the masterpieces at Kunstehuijs Fine Art Gallery, tour the pleasant surroundings at Marloth Nature Reserve, and take in the architecture and atmosphere at Old Apostolic Church.
