What a lovely trip to Wildebraam Berry Estate just outside Swellendam! Enjoyed a warm welcome and tasted various jams, chutneys and liqueurs. The berry picking is a fun family activity and the prices are very reasonable! A great experience and will definitely stop there again...More

A 9-hole golf course is 1.5km away and various sport clubs are in Swellendam.

Hi As a guest in the establishment, you will not be charged the entrance fee into the fields (R15), and obviously you can eat whilst picking, but , you will be charged for berries picked at the going R/KG rate.
