From the moment you turn off the Vergelegen Road onto the windy track over the riverbed (sometimes dry in summer), you know you are in for something special! You realise immediately that this IS a secret place, hidden away, a little piece of African magicunlike anything else you will ever have experienced. It is this very same feeling that you as a Guest feel, that made the owners fall instantly in love with Zwartberg View Mountain Lodge and decided to buy it in February 2016.
It is a newly acquired family lodge run by Belinda, Andre, and Jenny. The previous owners, Jann and Camilla, built a wonderful experience for guests and the objective of the new family is to maintain every ounce of this gem! Our goals are to strive for perfection, extreme cleanliness, friendly hospitality, excellent service, good free WIFI (as good as one can get in the mountains) and good coffee. Since buying the lodge they have upgraded a few things and made some changes; a swimming pool, a wonderful new lapa for an intimate dining experience, and upgraded bathrooms and newly painted chalets.
What they have not changed is the heart and soul of Zwartberg View –
At sunset the hills turn deep red, the clouds light up with an array of colours and shades even a photograph never seems to capture, and the jackals begin to call. As night falls and the mood begins to rise,and you make your way down to the valley you realise you are in a very special place!
