Jann has created a wonderful getaway experience at Zwartberg. The combination of privacy and peace at the chalets and amazing meals, beautiful up-close wildlife and very entertaining (Jann himself, when he was not cooking for us) socialising at the lodge is the perfect mix. The decor is delightful and the whole place quite quirky. We laughed a lot (not least at Jann's hugely entertaining tales), which is what every holiday needs. We loved the fact that there are only three chalets, keeping things very intimate and uncrowded. I think the value for money is totally exceptional, and the very high quality of the meals was unexpected. Thank you Jann, for getting this non-game eater to thoroughly enjoy a trio of eland, ostrich and springbok (encouraged after being assured that nothing on the plate was family of any of the animals on the property), grilled to tender perfection. The presence of Celeste the bushpig at dinner every night and a very busy bunch of birds at the feeder in the mornings were real joys. Thank you Jann, Amanda and Camilla, and for your indulgence with late breakfasts when there were no other guests. It was fabulous! Chantal & Greig
