View History

From the moment you turn off the Vergelegen Road onto the windy track over the riverbed, you know you are in for something special!  You realise immediately that this IS a secret place, a hidden gem, a little piece of African magic unlike anything else you will ever have experienced.  It is this very same feeling that you as a Guest feel, that makes each one of the Zwartberg View Team happy to work here and be part of this unique experience that guests recieve.  

We strive to provide the highest quality of hospitality services by offering our guests a real African bush experience and ensuring customer satisfaction.

Our lodge offers unique tranquil luxury which includes 360 degree majestic views of mountains (Eon Rooi Koppe range), wild animals, Karoo bush, spectacular sunrises and breathtaking sunsets – even from the luxury of our guests’ beds. Our guests also get to enjoy the unrivalled experience of watching an array of magnificent wild animals enjoy their “dinner” just a few meters away from their dining table or sundowner sofa on the terrace . A true African delight which few guest lodges can offer!

What we have not changed is the heart and soul of Zwartberg View – it is here you shrug off the modern world and forget about your problems!  Come relax, unwind, disappear for a couple of days and leave feeling refreshed and wanting to come back.
