BONTEBOK NATIONAL PARK
Bontebok National Park - Swellendam, Overberg, Western Cape, South Africa
Bontebok National Park, just outside the historic town of Swellendam, lies at the foot of the majestic Langeberg Mountains and is bordered by the winding Breede River.
The Park is home to over 200 Bontebok and many other animals including the Red Hartebeest and Grey Rhebok. Although the smallest of SA’s 22 National Parks, it is by no means less diverse.
Here are some ideas of what to see and do in Bontebok National Park:
- Go bird watching - Bontebok is a twitcher’s delight with over 200 bird species, including the Blue Crane and African Fish Eagle.
- Have a special celebration at ‘Die Stroom.’ The function facility caters for 50 people and has a built-in braai area on a spacious deck overlooking the Breede River.
- Go walking alongside the Breede River and through hills of Aloe.
- Take a drive around the park and spot some game.
- Get active - ride your mountain bike or go kayaking/canoeing. Bikes, kayaks and canoes can be rented in Swellendam.
- Braai next to the Breede. Wood can be bought at Bontebok National Park’s reception area, but don’t forget your grill and meat.
- Spend the night in a chalet in Lang Elsie’s Kraal Rest Camp, arrive by caravan or pitch a tent on one of the many campsites.
