I've stayed in one of the timber huts and also camped there. I must be getting old or something, but wow, have expectations changed for so called backpackers these days!
Some of these reviews are just astounding! If you are a true traveller who appreciates basic accommodation, at a fair price, likes to be in surrounded by a lovely setting and, like a true backpacker, makes the effort to make fire and chat, then this is a great place!.
Trouble with the so called ' modern' backpacker' is, they EXPECT 5 star accommodation at a backpacker price. Please, for you people, go and find a B& B for a lot more money!.
Backpackers are what YOU make them. This is a great place!. Swellendam has many lovely walks.........on the doorstep!. Just make the effort, that's all!. Enjoy.More
