Swallowtail Country Estate in Hogsback is up for sale!


This is the opportunity of a lifetime for prospective buyers who want to invest in this prime property. The resort will remain open and run normally until a buyer is found and the property changes hands to the new owner.

This premium property set in the mountains of Hogsback offers some of the most picturesque and tranquil surroundings in South Africa. The owners are 25 year members of the caravan club and in light of this, they were able to replicate a caravan park that offered just what people want and they now want to pass on the fruits of their labour to others who will continue their dream.

The Swallowtail Country Estate is also the home of the famous Hogsback Weather Stone! The park is situated within walking distance of the shops, restaurants and hiking trails. Don’t forget to take comfortable walking shoes with you if you plan to visit some of the wonderful waterfalls in the area.
