About Boskloof Swemgat

Boskloof Swemgat is a beautiful small farm in the unspoiled Boskloof Valley, some 10 km from Clanwilliam and at the foothills of the Northern Cedarberg Mountains.

The farm offers eight self-catering cottages, all situated on the banks of the Jan Dissels River with beautiful views of the surrounding mountains. It is the ideal place for a family getaway or a romantic weekend. Explore the farm roads on foot or mountain bike, fish and swim in the unpolluted river and be awed by the stars in the clear night skies above you.

Make this your base from which to explore the Cedarberg, the coast of Lambert's Bay, Wupperthal, Namaqualand and Clanwilliam, or simply relax and enjoy the peace and tranquility of the nature around you.

Lovely house with beautiful views across the valley. Hikes and the beach at the river is really beautiful. House has all the required essentials to have a lovely weekend and with the Jacuzzi on the deck was wonderful. Would definitely visit again.

Our Kliphuis was very neat and well equipped.  Very quiet surroundings and atmosphere - just what we needed!  We really enjoyed the jaccuzi on the stoep to cooldown from the heat and the walk up to the cave gave us a spectacular view!Wish we could stayed longer as the 4 nights we had!Thank  you for the nice and friendly welcoming.PS The road is a bit rough on a normal sedan vehicle but I am sure that differs as maintenance is done on the gravel road.RegardsEmil & Marita Jacobs

Stayed in the Kliphuis. There was everything we needed to cook, braai, relax and sleep.No cellphone reception which took some time to get used to but this was probably a blessing in disguise. Take a mountain bike, climbing shoes and a swimming costume.Buy your supplies before traveling the 10 km's from Clanwilliam and settle in.

We had an amazing stay. Could not find any faults. Perfect location. We hope to return in the near future. Thanks

Very peaceful spot and very reasonably priced. We really enjoyed ourselves here. I would not recommend it if you are afraid of spiders though! :) We will definitely be going back; it was very good value for money.
