A beautiful old home, renovated and transformed into something really different and memorable! The traditional architecture and original oregon pine floors are among the features you will admire, but the way the owners have themed the rooms is inspiring! Tasteful, yet humorous, with attention to detail - you will love the Zebra, Giraffe and Leopard Rooms, with far more extras than you would expect for the price you pay.
Guests can expect a homely, friendly welcome from hosts Dave and Amanda, who are deeply involved in their community and can introduce you to local people from all walks of life.
Swellendam is a beautiful little historical town, with an interesting museum, great restaurants and even a Faerie Sanctuary! It is the capital of Berry Growing in SA and visits to Berry Estates/ Farms to taste jams / liqueurs and preserves can be a highlight of your visit. Swellendam is bounded by two nature reserves, Bontebok and Marloth Mountain, both providing very different walking and viewing experiences. It is a bird lovers' paradise, with varieties of endemic species to add to your list, and the garden at Impangele has so many diverse birds, that guests frequently just want to sit there all day!
Swelllendam is on all the main Garden Route bus services, and Amanda or Dave are happy to collect visitors from the stop which is close by.
The breakfast at Impangele is amazing - a typical English breakfast is prepared by Brit Dave (including fried bread, baked beans and HP sauce!) - and there is also a choice of meats, cheeses, fresh fruit, cereals, muffins, pastries etc.
Impangele is quirky, memorable, friendly and affordable! You will definitely want to come back again and again
