Our team is what makes us who we are

General Manager – Anelle Van Der Vyver

I believe true luxury cannot be bought with money, and I strive to build a team that understands the importance of surprise and delight. Hunters are the perfect canvas for magical experiences and I feel so fortunate to be in the most exquisite garden in the whole Garden Route.

Head Chef – Louis Jansen

I strive for world class cuisine, infused with South African flavours, inspired by my Cape Malay Heritage. Each dish should tell a story and is integral to the guest experience. I constantly motivate my team to learn, grow and reach greater heights.
