Zwartberg View Mountain Lodge is exclusive… we only cater for 12 people!

If you are looking for a rustic, true african experience then you have come to the right place.  There are just three chalets set on a hillside overlooking valleys where 10 species of game roam freely.  You are surrounded by the famous Enon red hills and you look directly onto the magnificent Swartberg Mountains.  Each of the chalets has a private deck with armchairs and cushions, each decorated in a different animal theme.  If you are looking for luxury 5* this is not the place for you, but we do endeavour to give you all the comforts that you might need. The Chalets are set 300 metres from the main lodge buildings where we eat dinner and breakfast and where we light our nightly fire – this is where we encourage all our wild animals to come close to our guests which makes every evening a really special occasion.  The Chalets are directly linked to our two walking trails which take you right into the hills and valleys and back to your chalet.  Our 4th Cottage is a self catering Cottage tucked away in the river bed.  It has its own fireplace and you are completely secluded from the main lodge and other Chalets – but may of course join the other guests for breakfast or dinner, as you wish.  This is a perfect honeymoon hideaway.

Please note that our dinners are a set menu, usually served around 7pm and we also encourage our guests to interact with each other. All our meat comes off the fire, we do cater for vegetarians and vegans but please inform us before the time.


For many the opportunity to just sit on their private deck and let their imagination wander to what the world must have been like before people is more than enough, for others, there is a choice of three of the most wonderful walking trails imaginable that take in every aspect of the world’s recognised floral kingdoms.  Of course there is always a chance of an encounter with a Hartebeest bursting from cover, Zebra on a hillside, or coming across one of five Tortoise species found in this region! At sunset, magic happens!!!
