Things to do near Boskloof Swemat
Bring your loved ones and spend quality time in this tranquil spot. If you are feeling more adventures or active, you can explore the Cederberg, the coast at Lambert's Bay, Wupperthal, Namaqualand and Clanwilliam from here. But chances are very good that you may never feel like leaving the quiet haven of your cottage for anything more than a swim in the river or a leisurely walk!
The farm Boskloofswemgat is situated in the Boskloof Valley, a magnificent unspoiled area, bordering on the Cederberg Wilderness Area. The Jan Dissels river flows through the valley and the farm was named for a favourite river pool or "swemgat". The accommodation is set along the river banks and guests can enjoy swimming and fishing in the clear, unpolluted river. Other activities include mountain biking and hiking, on farm roads or longer hikes - the start of the Krakadouw Trail being near here. You can also do the rewarding hike to "Die Toring", a nearby peak - about 4 hours there and back. In Spring the valley turns into a spectacle of riotous colour when wild flowers carpet the landscape as far as the eye can see.
