EXPERIENCE SWARTBERG

For some, your stay with us may be one of rest and relaxation, for others,
we are the perfect base for a multitude of local activities.

We are ideally situated close to the world-renowned Cango Caves and it’s a mere 15km drive to the top of the Swartberg Pass for unparalleled views of the Cango Valley.

Seeking a little adventure? Why not hike in the Gamkaskloof – or as the locals call it, “Die Hel” (The Hell). This hidden valley features many historical points of interest as well as being home to many beautiful Fish Eagles.

Should you wish to remain at the manor, with “Voorbedacht” being a working farm, guests can discover the true essence of subsistence farming and daily walks on the farm allow guests to experience the peace and serenity of this beautiful valley.

For those who want a little more speed, mountain bikes are available for you to explore the more rugged terrain.

Thought of by many as a national monument, the mystery and history of the pass displays an incredible array of scenery. Take a slow drive and discover epic views.

As one of the steepest passes in South Africa, the terrain can be a little tricky to navigate, but don’t think that you can only venture through it with a 4×4 – imposing views can be enjoyed in any vehicle and it’s a breath-taking drive.
