The Greater Swellendam Republic is one of South Africa’s best-kept secrets and there’s truly something for everyone, no matter if you’re a history buff, sports fanatic, wildlife fan, adrenaline junkie, birder, wine and liqueur lover, foodie or just looking for a family break!
A Republic of community, unity, love, art, music, good food, and beauty. A Republic in which people show that they care about one another and about the environment in which they live, that they treasure wildlife and nature. A Republic which draws together the towns and villages that make up the Greater Swellendam Area – Swellendam, Suurbraak, Barrydale, Buffeljachts, Stormsvlei, Malagas and Cape Infanta.
