Schoone Oordt Country House

Schoone Oordt Country House


We departed Cape Town around 8:30pm and drove for about 2 hours to reach Swellendam. On arrival at Schoone Oordt, Allison was there to greet us and show us to our luxury room. Wow, that was all I could say when we walked into our room. As winter was fast approaching the sight of the fireplace at the end of the bed was a very welcome amenity. Having shown us around the basics of our room Allison bid us good night and left us for a brilliant nights’ sleep!

Breakfast in the morning was delicious – with a choice of a few cereals including Allison’s delicious homemade muesli, we were then treated to a 2 course breakfast! A great way to start the day.

The area of Swellendam has so many wonderful places to explore and visit. From a trip down to Agulhas (the most Southern tip of Africa), horse riding in the forest, driving over Tradouw’s Pass or visiting one of the local wine farms there is something to keep visitors busy! I would highly recommend a stay of 2 nights to really enjoy everything on offer including the scrumptious dinners!

Your car is also washed daily which is a great value add for those self-driving!

Our family stay at the Cape Royale was one to remember.  I decided to take my two small children with on this occasion. Butterflies in tummy and hoping that the kids would behave, we travelled to the Cape Royale.


African Pride Arabella Hotel & Spa

I would definitely recommend the African Pride Arabella Hotel & Spa for any conference group, large or small, due to its proximity to both Cape Town International Airport as well as the famous coastal town of Hermanus.


Savuti Safari Lodge, Chobe

I was starting to get used to my early mornings; in fact I was starting to enjoy them. Today we were off to the Savuti Safari Lodge. This lodge is situated in the North of Botswana, in Chobe and has the most amazing game viewing as it overlooks a watering hole. There is almost no need to go on a game drive; the game literally comes to you.
