At Swartberg Country Manor we encourage guests to relax and feel at home whilst enjoying their holiday. The lounge area is the perfect place to relax on a comfortable couch with a book or enjoy an afternoon siesta. During the mid-day heat, recline in a sun-lounger or enjoy the crystal clear swimming pool.
Swartberg Country Manor is nestled on the farm "Voorbedacht" situated in the Cango Valley at the foot of the world-renowned Swartberg Mountain Pass. The picturesque Swartberg Mountains will bring comfort to anyone that wants to "get away from it all" and simply soak up the peace of its tranquil surroundings.
The extraordinary panoramic views of the Swartberg Mountains from the veranda of the original farmhouse compelled us to create a venue where more people could share in the tranquillity and serenity of this beautiful valley. read more

The Klein Karoo is certainly an area with an extreme climate. The summers are long and hot with temperatures sometimes reaching above 40°C. The winters, though short, can get extremely cold with snow often appearing on the Swartberg Mountains after a cold front. Less than 260mm of rain falls the whole year round peaking in spring and autumn while in the summer it can be delivered in the form of dramatic thundershowers.
