Swaynekloof Farm is a lifestyle farm set in a river valley in the Overberg, 4.5 km north of Botrivier Town. Botrivier town is 30 minutes from Somerset West along the N2 highway or a little over an hour's drive from Cape Town CBD.
Swaynekloof’s self-catering guest cottages offer a tranquil getaway from the rushed city life. There is also a splash pool. Well-behaved pets are welcome at the owner’s risk.
The farm has not been farmed on for almost a decade to allow the natural renosterveld vegetation and small animals to return. We have built an 11 km game fence around a large portion of the farm and already have eland, springbok, zebra and a few ‘zen-like’ nguni within the enclosure. There are also a few sheep.
Recently purchased by the Simmonds Family Trust, we are endeavouring to create a paradise which we want to share with other nature lovers.
At the farm, our neighbours on one side have a great collection of animals which you can view on request and our other neighbour offers horse riding.
The guest cottages overlook the beautiful Botrivier Valley where you can find birds and small mammals. You can have a truly relaxing break, just sitting by the river and enjoying your picnic lunch or if you feel like doing something, we are just 30 minutes’ drive from Kleinmond, Caledon, Villiersdorp and 20 minutes’ drive from Grabouw, where you can enjoy hiking or biking in the Overberg.
