Swellendam Travel Guide

Horseback Riding

Two Feathers Horse Trails. You can take just a little trot or a longer excursion through the Marloth Nature Reserve on horseback with Two Feathers Horse Trails. Expect to pay around R300 for a 1½-hour excursion. Full-day rides can be arranged on request and include a picnic lunch. 5 Liechtenstein St., Swellendam, 6740. 082/494–8279. www.swellendambackpackers.co.za.

From Swellendam return to the N2 and turn right toward Cape Town. The road sweeps through rich, rolling cropland that extends to the base of the Langeberg. A few kilometers after the town of Riviersonderend (pronounced riff-ear-son-der-ent), turn right onto the R406, a good gravel road that leads to the village of Greyton, in the lee of the Riviersonderend Mountains.
