Hi Chris, Many thanks for such a fantastic review, we love hearing that our guests had a lovely time. And no need to thank us regarding help for your tyre, it was only a pleasure as like you said, we are "in the middle of nowhere" so helping is what us country folk do. LOL! Please do come back and...

Breakfasts everything you would wish for and delightfully served with friendly attention to all our wishes...... they really set us up for the day.🙂 Views from the balcony and the garden...

My girlfriend and I had a spectacular 3 night getaway filled with laughter, wildlife, adventure and great conversation. Belinda, Andre and Jenn are the best hosts we've encountered on our travels so far. They didn't feel like formal hosts, but like old friends welcoming us into their home. The views from the lounge area are breathtaking with a diverse array...

Set in a stunning setting with beautiful views across the mountains ....and your own private watering hole too. A real Gem of a place run by a wonderfully friendly couple who cooked us a great evening meal and equally good breakfast. The three "lodges" sit slightly up the hill from the eating/pool area and are tastefully furnished with great views...

5 Stars ! We drove 4 hours to reach Zwartberg and it was well worth it. We were greeted and shown our lodges which have a fantastic view over the hills. In the evening we enjoyed an incredible 3 course meal overlooking the zebra, kudu, springbok, oryx, gnu and giraffe. In the morning we awoke to the sun hitting the...

What a great place. To sit on the porch of the lodge watching the animals all around you is perfect. The hosts, the food, superb. The chalets are perfectly appointed, even had a friendly gecko just to create the perfect ambiance.

What a great place to stay if you’re in the Karoo. The lodge is surrounded by beautiful red mountains and it’s about 20min outside of Oudtshoorn. Not easy to find but worth it. The owners were incredibly helpful, accommodating and just ever so friendly. I stayed in a little chalet that has everything you need plus an amazing setting. Animals...

Wonderful to find this beautiful, peaceful place in the middle of nowhere. The hospitality was very special and many thanks to Jenny, Andre & Belinda. We will always remember sitting on the stoop at sundown watching the wild animals and afterwards enjoying a delicious dinner by candlelight. We'll be back!
