THINGS TO DO
We are open for buisness
The Swartberg Pass is an iconic mountain pass that has found its way onto the bucket list of many an international traveller. The Pass was constructed between 1881 and 1886 as part of a drive by the government of the day to open reliable routes between the interior and the coast. The design of the route was done in 1879 by Thomas Bain.
Gamkaskloof / Die Hel
Gamkaskloof or Die Hell as it has become known, is a hidden valley, deep in the heart of the formidable Swartberg Mountain Range. The valley was declared a national monument in 1997 and was included into the Swartberg Nature Reserve. The route is unparalleled for its natural beauty.
Weltevrede Fig Farm
Weltevrede is one of the first fig farms in South Africa. It started out as a fruit drying farm: drying peaches, apricots and figs. Today we have over a thousand fig trees (one tree is over a hundred years old!) and we sell dry, fresh and bottled figs. We farm mainly with Adam Figs, a big purple fig, excellent for drying and selling fresh. We use the tiny Cape Brown figs for making Green Fig Preserve and other fig products.
The fig season is from end of January to end of April.

Gays Guernsey Dairy
Gay van Hasselt started what is now known as Gay’s Guernsey Dairy in 1990 when she started milking three cows in a stone kraal. She soon discovered that there was a demand for fresh milk in the community and started selling to a few customers who would arrive with their empty containers and get their daily supply of milk while on their morning walks.
