Bontebok National Park is a place of simplistic beauty and peaceful charm. The majestic Langeberg Mountains provide a picturesque backdrop for this Park of colorful riches.

Explore the smallest national park of the South African National Parks' stable - on the banks of the Breede River, just 5km from the town of Swellendam in the Western Cape. Part of the Cape Floral Kingdom (a World Heritage Site), Bontebok National Park is always boasting something in bloom. Discover the beauty of the park through a day visit or overnight stay - watch the Bontebok grazing from your chalet window, or spy on the many birds home to the park from the viewing deck at the picnic and braai area.
