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.

Ons het baie lekker gebly by Boskloof Swemgat (Owen huisie). Dis die ideale plek of af te skakel. Geen selfoonsein, geen televisie. Die musiek van die natuur is ongelooflik. Die gasvryheid waarmee ons ontvang is, het ons laat tuis voel. Skakel af jou selfoon, vergeet van televisie en gesels met jou familie en/of vriende van aangesig tot aangesig. ONGELOOFLIK!

We had a pleasant stay at Boskloof Swemgat. Our little chalet, Nenna, was well equipped, very clean and tidy. The surrounds are really beautiful and tranquil. The 10km dirt road that gets you there from Clanwilliam is in very good condition.

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
