Swartberg Mountain Tours
Reviewed April 24, 2013

There's only one way to discover Swartberg mountain and that's with Roeland. We did the tour with our two boys (10, 12 years old), and they also loved it. He makes a stop wherever you want, depending on your interests, tells you everything about the flora and fauna, or everything you want to know about South Africa. We learned a lot about geology, and we saw lots of animals. We did the same trip already on our own, but now we know you miss a lot that way.

If you are in the region, leave your car and take a guided tour with Roeland. We did the circular tour from Oudtshoorn to Prince Albert with the Cango caves and a swim in the waterfalls on the way and absolutely loved it. In theory, this can be done by car on your own but without someone to explain the flora and fauna and the incredible mountain formations you would be missing out. Roeland is passionate about the area and his enthusiasm is catching. One of our group called it "food for the soul" A lovely and memorable day.

Book Roeland and you will not be disappointed!
We did 2 long private trips on consecutive days and were very impressed.
We had time to stop wherever, we could choose to sit inside or outside the vehicle and the scenery was stunning.
The waterfalls, sunbirds, caves, Prince Albert, wine tasting, the Gamkadam and the gorge were super.
This must be repeated!
Well done!

An experience of a lifetime! Beautiful views, but a sore bum the next day. Well run by Backpackers Lodge, all equipment included, just watch out for crazy South African motorists once you get onto the main road. Only the first 10km's is downhill, the other 44km's are gentle slopes. We stopped, ate and swam at a tea garden on the way. Highly recommended.

Outstanding drive, amazing views, thrilling ride down on a mountain bike.
Cango caves well worth a visit.
visited both with Allen Theron of Western Cape tours as part of a 9 day trip, staying at Stonebreaker Lodge just outside Oudtshoorn
