              What a wonderful place Zwartkop Guest Farm situated about 60km from Ceres. Our host Dawie was absolutely wonderful allowing us full access to the farm. The accommodation was adequate and we throughly enjoyed the shower in the rondawel. We would love to come back but this time in winter when the heat is not a problem as 35 degrees can be a struggle.

              I am so impressed with my visit at Zwartkop!I have never had such a excellent stay in the Karoo. I didnt know what to expect staying in the Schack, but had a pleasant surprise...it is all but a Schack. It is rustic as it says in the advert and thats what I wanted. Everything was clean and impeccable in the Schack. Sitting outside in a bath to sooth away the Karoo heat and looking at stars, so bright as nowhere else, it almost felt you can reach out and touch it. That was after having one of the best pizzas...with chillies thats grown on Zwartkop and baked in a pizza oven outside the unique...

              Not as advertised. Indicated as in Ceres but is actually 55 kilometers out. No power only solar. Could not keep my fridge cold. No bed side cabinets. Wood cabin had no insulation in roof only galvanised corrugation sheets. Walls had no insulation and wooden panels had gaps. Floor the same. Road very due to thunderstorm. No air on unit. Insufficient bedding. Ideal for backpackers or campers but very rustic and not as expected. Beautiful environment and great hosts.
