Clanwilliam is a town in the Olifants River valley in the Western Cape, South Africa, about north of Cape Town. Venture out of the city with trips to West Coast Fossil Park (in Vredenburg), Tulbagh (Oakhurst Olives, De Oude Kerk, & more) and Simply Bee Obsevation Centre (in Hopefield). There's still lots to do: hike along Sevilla Rock Art Trail, examine the collection at Clanwilliam Museum, look for gifts at Rooibos Tea House, and make a trip to Heerenlogement.

For maps, reviews, and more tourist information, you can read our Clanwilliam trip planner .
