Regarded as South Africa's third-oldest town, Swellendam contains over 50 provincial heritage sites and well-preserved examples of Cape Dutch architecture.
Your cultural itinerary includes sights like Drostdy Museum and Cape Agulhas Lighthouse. You'll visit kid-friendly attractions like Shark Diving and Dolphin & Whale Watching. Get out of town with these interesting Swellendam side-trips: Hermanus (The Whale House Museum, Rossouw Modern, & more), Montagu (Sanbona Wildlife Reserve, Montagu NGK Dutch Reformed Church, & more) and Houw Hoek Farm Stall (in Elgin).
