What to do at Bontebok National Park

Holidaymakers can visit the park after wine routing in Robertson, Bonnievale and Ashton. Bontebok National Park activities include game viewing and relaxing at the Breede River. Nearby Swellendam offers great amenities, history and wining and dining establishments.

Year round there is always something in bloom in the park with peak flowering season occurring in spring.
