BARBARA KIND

Founder and Director

Originally from Germany, Barbara bought Fort Governor’s Estate in 2014 and now spends her time equally between Germany and South Africa, restoring FGE back to her dream of a haven for both wildlife and people!

SEAN VAN ZYL

Managing Director and Head PH

With over 20 years of experience in the game & hunting industry, Sean is the driving force behind the running of the Estate. The “man with the big hat” is a fully qualified game ranger and PH and has a fair number of exciting fire-side stories to tell from his years in the industry.

JO VAN ZYL

Hospitality Manager and Reservations

Originally from the UK, Jo moved to SA in 2008 to work at a number of 5-star game lodges. With a keen passion for travel, cuisine and outdoor living, Jo runs the show for all things hospitality related and always likes to give her guests the best possible experience with a few hidden surprises! 

PIETER LAFRAS-MOOLMAN

Junior Farm Manager & PH

Hailing from Jeffrey’s Bay, Pieter joined the team in 2018 and is a qualified PH and dab hand at taking our guests out on a game drive, always with a smile on his face. Rumour has it he pours a fierce Gin & Tonic and can spot buffalo from miles away.....

CHEF LUKHANYO

Head Chef

Our very own “Masterchef” Lukhanyo is able to whip up some of the most beautiful, tasty creations this side of the Equator! His biltong-sauce is the stuff of legends and the rest of his creations will make sure you never go hungry.

HOUSEKEEPING TEAM

Our friendly housekeepers, Regina and Ntombizanele are the cheerful faces that keep our lodges beautiful and clean and our linen crisp and fresh!

THE TEAM ON THE GROUND

We have a small but perfectly formed team who keep everything on the farm in running order. Lucky, Klaas and Nkosinathi tackle all the necessary jobs, big and small, to keep our Game and Estate in great condition!
