Top class Oudtshoorn Accommodation

If you want to escape the busy city life, experience the beauty, tranquillity, captivating, exquisite and breathtaking views of the Swartberg Mountains and waterfall, Swartberg Backpackers is the perfect place for you.

We are situated on an eco-friendly farm with a waterfall, 5km from the Swartberg Pass entrance (on the side of the Cango Caves), 45 km from Oudtshoorn.
The accommodation will provide you with a full kitchen with an oven and refrigerator and barbecue facilities with free wood. You can enjoy a waterfall, mountain and farm dam view from the units. The Ark also has a table tennis to keep the children and even adults busy.

Instead of electricity, we use solar electricity, gas and wood fires. This means no TV. The solar electricity provides enough power to charge a laptop, cellular phone, room lights as well as a portable 12V fridge. There are solar geysers and gas to provide warm water and a stainless steel “donkie” for the overcast and rainy days.
