Are you suffering from Cave Syndrome?

Are you suffering from Cave Syndrome?
You are not alone! Since lockdown began, many of us have become socially anxious and have developed a preference for a more hermit like existence.  People are susceptible to develop stress, anxiety, and post-traumatic stress disorder after suffering from trauma. The advent of Coronavirus, the subsequent lockdown, enforced separation from loved ones and polarised views of vaccinations causing friendship rifts …
If you ARE suffering from Cave Syndrome - then this new local Swellendam Service could not have come at a better time. This service will collect and deliver your laundry, groceries and your pharmacy needs. It will also collect and deliver your orders from local restaurants, AND - when you are finally ready to fully reintegrate into society - you won't need a designated driver in your group. For a very reasonable price you can visit wine farms in Bonnievale. (Also Cape Town and airport shuttles are available)
LOCAL JOURNEYS: R50 pp for people shuttle, R20 for food delivery. Surcharges outside Swellendam, check when you book.
