Few people can boast about having access to some of South Africa´s most beautiful views in exclusive locations including the Cape Winelands, Bushveld or banks of the Vaal River. With Zorgvliet Portfolio, all of this and more is not only a possibility it´s a promise. Zorgvliet Portfolio is diverse in its offerings but one thing rings true for all of them - authenticity, class and luxury.
In 2003 Zorgvliet Portfolio purchased Riviera on Vaal Hotel & Country Club and transformed it into the icon it always should have been. Boasting 89 stylish rooms, three restaurants, a floating restaurant and an 18-hole golf course - this boutique hotel has become an impressive leisure and business destination.
The vision of property developer and entrepreneur Mac van der Merwe is what brought Zorgvliet Portfolio into existence. The first acquisition to this formidable group was Zorgvliet Wine Estate, which is a wine farm positioned in the hub of the Cape Winelands. This gem lies at the foot of the Simonsberg Mountain in the Banhoek Valley near Stellenbosch. Since its purchase on auction, it has grown into a working wine farm that offers 5 star accommodation, cocooned in green vineyards, producing elegant, award winning Zorgvliet Wines in a top class modern wine cellar. Through the Zorgvliet Privilege Club you can enjoy Zorgvliet Wines and enjoy other leisure benefits of the Zorgvliet Portfolio.
Ka´Ingo Private Reserve & Spa is home to the legendary Big 5, giving you the opportunity to experience these animals in their natural surroundings. Ka´Ingo resides in the malaria free Waterberg region of the Limpopo Province and exudes African allure. With activities such as bush dining, bush walks, game drives and San and Pedi Rock Art tours, you will emerge from Ka´Ingo in touch with the African bushveld. Being in the bushveld does not mean cutting back on luxury; prepare yourself for a lavish experience when visiting Ka´Ingo.
Right next door to Ka´Ingo, is another one of Zorgvliet Portfolio´s unique destinations Dinkweng Game Farm. Zorgvliet Property Development has introduced a fractional ownership concept which offers you the opportunity to own a piece of Africa by joining the Zorgvliet Private Residence Club. According to Mac van der Merwe, Chief Executive of Zorgvliet Portfolio, "Only 85% of the available occupancy of the Dinkweng lodges is being sold to ensure flexibility for members. For a fraction of the cost of a holiday home, members of the Zorgvliet Private Residence Club can enjoy the peace of mind of trouble-free, luxurious accommodation."
All Zorgvliet Portfolio destinations have a Zorgvliet Spa on the premises. Zorgvliet Spa uses the latest spa products and guarantees a relaxing and rejuvenating experience for all its visitors. A range of treatments and packages have been designed to lure you back for more pampering sessions.
The group further established itself as a force in the local travel and tourism market by acquiring a major share in the PH King George in George and the Sure Zorgvliet Travel agency in 2004. Sure Zorgvliet Travel´s well qualified travel consultants ensure that your travelling arrangements run efficiently.
St Andrews Travel Agency based in Bolton, Lancashire in the United Kingdom is also part of the Zorgvliet Portfolio. In addition to over 200 years of combined retail travel agency experience, St Andrews Travel´s professionals have extensive first hand worldwide product knowledge.
"The highest reward for management is still when a visitor bestows a ´wow that is great´ upon them," says Mac van der Merwe. Zorgvliet Portfolio prides itself in always striving to deliver special experiences for special people.
