Your honeymoon is just around the corner and you’re looking for somewhere close by but still a little bit off the beaten track. Well, look no further than the secluded but magical Swartland because we can promise you this: One visit and you’ll never want to leave again.
The Swartland is the area that begins about 50 kilometres north of Cape Town. To put it into even better perspective, the region can be beaconed off at Malmesbury in the south, Darling in the west, Piketberg in the north and Riebeek Kasteel in the east. So yes, you can expect to encounter true small town charm and cozy living in this nape of the woods!
What truly sets the Swartland apart from other regions is its stark natural beauty and the untainted natural surroundings – the type that evokes a sense of peace in even the most restless heart. What’s more, the region offers a wide variety of wedding holiday venues, all oh-so unique and striking in their own right. From nature reserves to game farms and lodges, these magnificent nooks all have one thing in common – inviting the outdoors inside.
While these bushveld spots are mostly situated at least an hour’s drive from the nearest city, there's ample to do and experience in the surrounding area. Indulge in memorable game drives and, if you’re really the nature type, a hike or three is certainly a must. Saddle up, because you’re in for the honeymoon of a lifetime! ...less
