Road to Riviersonderend

Riviersonderend is the centre of a thriving grain and sheep farming region. The town itself has a unique rural atmosphere and has not much to offer visitors looking for an unforgettable shopping experience. However, for those seeking outdoor fun, Riviersonderend and surrounds, offer something for everyone.

Depart Riviersonderend and travel along for about 58 km until you reach Swellendam.

Nestling in a valley beneath the spectacular peaks of the Langeberg Mountain, it is a charming town with a fascinating history. Visit the Drostdy Museum Complex and spend some time at the Wildebraam Liquer Farm for tasting and berry picking in season. Swellendam offers attractions rich in heritage and culture, architecture, wildlife and outdoor adventure.

Road to Bredasdorp

Depart Swellendam and travel along the N2 towards Heidelberg. At Buffeljags (10 km from Swellendam) you will find a stopover on your right, the road to Malgas turns right from here. The gravel road leads via Malgas to Bredasdorp over the Breede River on the last manually operated pont in South Africa. The road leads past the De Hoop Nature Reserve. Travel along until you reach Bredasdorp, a sleepy agricultural town in the midst of a peaceful landscape of sheep farms and wheat fields. Visit the Shipwreck Museum, the only museum of its kind in South Africa. It displays an extensive collection of artefacts and furniture from ships wrecked along the South African coastline. It also contains showpieces specific to the Overberg.

Travel from Bredasdorp onto the R316 towards Napier. Surrounded by rolling wheat and barley fields, it is known among many visitors and locals as "The village with the old world charm" Napier is not a town of oak-lined cottages and bubbling brooks, but it surely offers visitors true peace and tranquillity in a unique scenic setting amidst a genuine kind-hearted, hospitable country community.

Depart Napier travelling along the R316 road until you reach Caledon, where you can relax and unwind at The Caledon after a long gravel journey.
