Picnic & Braai at Die Stroom

Bontebok National Park is the perfect place for a day visit with the family or friends, when in the surrounding area of Swellendam and surrounding towns. Enjoy a picnic on the banks of the Breede River, or braai at one of the designated braai spots, or Die Stroom function centre, also on the banks of the Breede.


Extend your stay at Bontebok National Park and bring your tent or caravan and camp overnight under the stars at the designated camp sites within the park. With magnificent views of the Brede River, full ablution facilities - and the chance of waking up to a Bontebok grazing near your head - there couldn't be a better camping spot.

Game Viewing Self-Drives

Bontebok National Park is home to Bontebok, Grey Rhebuck, red Hartebees as well as many smaller mammals - take yourself and/or your family on a drive around the park and spot as many animals as you can.


Home to around 200 species of bird , Bontebok national park is a bird-watcher's paradise and is known as an excellent place to view Denham's (Stanley's) Bustard. View birds from the deck of your chalet, from a self-drive through the park, or while relaxing on the banks of the Breede River.
