Travellers Rest in Clanwilliam

Traveller's Rest Farm is 34 km from Clanwilliam on the Wupperthal road, over the spectacular Pakhuis Pass, in an area with ruggedly beautiful landscapes and fascinating rock formations.
Discover a place where you can truly enjoy the wide open spaces, the varied plant and animal life, inspiring night skies, and so much more.

The cottages are all delightful in their earthy simplicity and surprising in their homely, well equipped comfort.

Why does this place not come up on google maps until you have zoomed into their doormat? We broke down nearby and were helped greatly by staff, customers and passers by. Wonderful friendly vibe.

A gem for nature lovers as well as for those who wish to see the trace of historic Bushmen paintings. The restaurant is stunning. The accommodation is okay but in need for touch up and repairs.

We had tea and later dinner. Very friendly quaint place with meals and tourist stuff. To bad they allow illegal smoking and make no attempt to control it. So if you like clean air you may have to stay away.

Great home style food and friendly service! The farmstall has great variety and some basics you might have forgotten to pack! The Sevilla Rock Art trail starts here and definitely worth checking out!

Enjoyed our stay there. The cottages are well equipped and spacious. A bit bohemian but this provides character. The walk to see the many good examples of the San Rock paintings is not strenuous or too long. The coffee flavoured milkshakes are very good. Enjoy one after the rock painting walk.

Basic but well thought out accommodation in one of the most incredible parts of South Africa is managed by a farming community that make you feel welcome . Nearby rock paintings are wonderful to see. Rock climbing and hiking in the nearby national park and 4x4 trails and the home of Rooibos tea in the area. The wild flowers in season are brilliant.

We walked the Sevilla Rock Art Trail and combined our visit with a lunch break at Traveller's Rest. It has been an outstanding experience. The self guided rock art trail was an interesting excursion into the valley. A small brochure with the trail's points of interest and a map describes the art along the trail. The gift shop also sells an interesting booklet on the art written by Peter Slingsby.Although you may have seen rock art before, the art by the San people, dating back 2,000 to even perhaps 8,000 ago is something special. Lunch was perfect and the gift shop has interesting books on sale, including the best selling Ants of South Africa.

review by Torsten Bottin

"The cottage was very rustic"

- but comfortable and clean. The surroundings are beautiful, you really feel very far away from the rest of the world. We went on the Sevilla Rock Art trail which was fascinating, and afterwards we spent the afternoon cooling off in rock pools, which was extremely peaceful.

review by Anonymous, South Africa

"Wonderful surprise"

The accommodation was beyond our expectations. The whole family enjoyed the experience in the tranquil setting, especially the swim in the river. My only negative comment is that the name of the place is wrong: it creates the perception that it is only suitable for a passover on your way somewhere, but the place is worth a visit as a destination in its own right. We surely did not want to leave the next morning.
