03/11/2013 The most wonderful stay! After two special days at Zwartberg Mountain Retreat we feel a bit sad to leave this place. Special thanks to Jann and his crew for the best and varied food we had for a long time. Also we enjoyed the company of the wild animals visiting us in the evening. Jann's hospitality can only be described as exceptional. Hope to return one day
