Swellendam Recommended Recommended : Michelin's recommendations


Swellendam was created by the Dutch East India Company to gain control over the settlers who came to the Overberg. There are few old buildings left as testaments to the town’s history. But visiting the Drostdy Museum in the former home of the magistrate-governor, as well as Mayville House, the prison, the Oefeningshuis and the Dutch Reformed Church gives you a good overview. You can take a day trip to nearbyMarloth Nature Reserve or Bontebok National Park.
