Overview

Swaynekloof Farm is a lifestyle farm set in the Botrivier Valley in the Overberg, 4.5km north of Botrivier Town. Botrivier Town is 30 minutes from Somerset West along the N2 or a little over an hour's drive from Cape Town CBD.

At Swaynekloof Farm, we have created an animal and plant sanctuary which we love to share with other country-loving folk. So far, we have built an 11km game fence around a large portion of the farm and already have eland, Springbok, zebra, ostriches and a few 'zen-like' nguni within the enclosure. We also have a few sheep to keep our grass short on the slopes and to provide free-range meat for the farm. Our bird life is amazing with a wonderful assortment of raptors, weavers, water birds, hoopoo and many more. The Gardens are literally a cacophony of noise during the day while the still, quiet nights are broken by the occasional 'hoot hoot' of our resident owls. On top of all this, we are trying to recover the renosterveld on the hills behind the farm and have seen improvement after many years of over-grazing and neglect.

Our self-catering guest cottages overlook the very pretty Bot Rivier Valley and offer a tranquil get-away from busy city life. You can enjoy a family braai, a picnic lunch on the river bank, or if you really need to do something, remember we are just 10 minutes from Houw Hoek Inn, 30 minutes from Kleinmond, Caledon, Villiersdorp and 20 minutes from Grabouw/Elgin. All these beautiful spots offer hiking, biking and horse riding, as well as whale watching and the normal beach activities in the summer.

Back at the farm, our neighbours on one side have an unusual collection of animals, including lion, cheetahs, rooikat, and hyena which you can view on request. Our other neighbour rears beautiful Appaloosa horses. So much to do and so close to the 'bright lights', yet a haven to restore the soul and rejuvenate the senses. As one guest commented, 'one night on the farm and I feel as if I have had a month's holiday!'
