About African Shades Swellendam

African Shades

Recharge at our unique B&B located in the heart of historic Swellendam, right across from the Drostdy Museum complex.

Warm, friendly service and six spacious en-suite rooms await you. All rooms are located away from the main road and offer super comfortable beds, separate entrances and private patios.

Relax by the secluded saltwater swimming pool with views of the Langeberg Mountains. A welcome relief on those hot, summer days!

Our licensed coffee shop is shaded under large oak trees and is open for breakfast and lunch. Using only the freshest available ingredients, we ensure that every plate of food looks and tastes great.
