Make Swartberg Country Manor your next holiday destination – you won’t regret it!
This is the deal:
- A 2x night stay for two people
- Including breakfast daily
Located in the Cango Valley in the foothills of the ruggedly beautiful Swartberg Mountain Pass, the manor exudes old-world charms and the graces of a bygone era in remote Klein Karoo countryside. The setting forces you to relax and appreciate where you are, away from the distractions of the modern world.
The establishment dates back 153 years, with the original Voorbedachte farmhouse built-in 1864. While refurbishments have been made over the years, every effort has been made to retain the original look and feel, with its wooden floors, high ceilings, period furniture, and timeless ambiance.
Luxury, en suite guest rooms and a cosy lounge area are the perfect places for making memories.
In the cold evenings, make your way to Patat Restaurant and warm up with traditional South African fare coupled with fine local wines.
Keen to explore the Klein Karoo? Use Swartberg Country Manor as a base – it’s located near to places of interest, including:
The Cango Caves
Explore the fruits of the underground on tours of The Cango Caves – the only show caves in Africa. Play it safe on the Heritage Tour if you’re with small kids or claustrophobic, or opt for thrills and an adrenaline rush on the Adventure Tour – be ready to squeeze through tight spaces and clamber up steep and slippery rock faces!
En route to the caves, make a stop at an ostrich farm to catch a glimpse of the beauties or perhaps to even take a ride on one!
Gamkaskloof a.k.a Die Hel
The world heritage site, Gamkaskloof, also known as Die Hel or Swartberg Nature Reserve, is a 121,000ha reserve between the Klein and Groot Karoo. The reserve conserves a diversity of vegetation, with the main attraction being the rare protea venusta. To see them in full bloom, visitors are advised to visit at the start of autumn. The reserve also has a variety of wildlife, including antelope, baboon, dassies and leopard.
Whatever you choose to do, the folk at Swartberg Country Manor will make your stay a memorable one.
