Klein Jan will become the place where the region’s vast culinary offering will be translated into world-class cuisine, by Jan Hendrik and his team, who will also design the Tswalu dining experience.

“I’m a farm boy, born and raised, so I always knew I would go back to the bush; to the campfires and open skies of my beloved South Africa. Together, we have embarked on an incredible project that celebrates the unexplored culinary territory of the vast Kalahari,” said Jan Hendrik on janhendrikblog.com.

In addition, Jan Innovation Studio, a new development kitchen, will be opening its doors in Cape Town, where a team of chefs and students will continually develop and innovate South African cuisine. The Cape Town team will share their findings with their colleagues at Michelin star restaurant Jan in Nice, France, which will remain one of the premier gateways for sharing South African cuisine with the world.

Klein Jan is set to open its doors in 2020.
