Welcome to Frog Mountain Getaway

Frog Mountain Getaway offers guests affordable, pet-friendly self-catering accommodation, in a spectacular secluded valley at the end of a farm road...set within the beautiful Langeberg Mountains of the Western Cape.

Family Rivera-Wanliss is delighted and blessed to have become the new custodians of this truly unique, magnificent and magical farm in February 2019. Moving to Frog Mountain farm is literally a “dream come true”!

We welcome you to our amazing new home, where nature is abundant and alive and where the grass is literally greener!

Whether just a small family or a large group celebrating an occasion, we can accommodate up to 45 guests, all self-catering, in an idyllic and breath-taking setting.

Come and explore our emerald green gem tucked away in a secluded valley just 18km outside the historic town of Swellendam.

Frog Mountain farm is a true nature lover's paradise, that touches the mountain, and 'a river runs through it!' Here you can wake to the sound of the birds, watch our beautiful Nguni cattle grazing in the green fields, explore the waterfall and rock pools, paddle on the river, fish in our dam, and spend you evenings gazing at the miraculous Milky Way whilst listening to the song of the frogs. Every season is full of beauty! Just being here is truly restorative!

“Frog Mountain is still my absolute favorite spot for a family getaway, and my whole family always comes back rejuvenated. It just doesn't get better, and the only thing I dislike about Frog Mountain, is leaving it."

"Perfect for families"

We had an amazing stay - truly beautiful location, and the children and grown ups alike loved it. Brian was super helpful and friendly, helped make sure everything was fab. Particularly liked the foefie slide, canoeing and the waterfall walk. The pool and the playground are excellent, and the Nguni cottage we stayed in was lovely - basic, but very clean and a lovely braai area.

"Adventurous,profound appearance..."

What do I say about this place would be less for this. I think I took right decision of going here because of some aspects. There we saw greenry, valley and scenic appearance of everything, selfie worthy views we noticed. So guys don't waste your time in thinking, come here this is beautiful and the best place in this city.

"Weekend with friends and their kids"

Second visit this year and had an amazing time again. We booked up all the accommodation which added to the intimacy of Frog Mountain. Between us there were 12 adults and 11 children aged 2 to 14. There's so much on offer for the children in a very safe environment allowing them terrific "old school" freedom. We all enjoyed the facilities although the river was a bit too cold (but it is May after all). We enjoyed the comfort Sam's Place offers for gatherings and the seclusion offered by each of the different units. We were lucky and had fantastic weather so made the most of the waterfall, fishing, ziplining, etc. The only issue was Sunday arrived all too quickly. Can't wait to return again.

"Family and friends weekend end of March 2017"

We arrived at Frog Mountain. Incredible place. Lots and lots of activities for the whole family. The place is run very well and has an honesty tuckshop and playroom with table tennis table and board games. I would suggest at least a 3-4 night stay as its quite a drive for a weekend.

"Ideal holiday with children"

I can highly recommend Frog Mountain for a truly relaxing holiday: plenty of fresh air, grass and farm roads for the kids to run on (or for you to take your mountain bike out on), a river and swimming pool which are close enough to enjoy but without the constant drowning risk, a fab playground where the kids can entertain themselves, and cottages kitted out with everything you need. we've been twice now, and will surely make this an annual long weekend away. The hosts are also wonderful, and go out of their way to assist with your stay. Just perfect!
