Welcome to Bontebok National Park
Some 6km south of Swellendam is the country's smallest national park, proclaimed in 1931 to save the remaining 30 bontebok. The project was successful, and bontebok now thrive here alongside other antelopes and mountain zebras. As there are no predators, you can hike within the park, checking out the fynbos (fine bush) and abundant birdlife. The campground and chalets are located on the edge of the Breede River, where you can swim in summer. The main attraction in late winter and spring is the flowering fynbos.
