Klein JAN, meaning “Little Jan”, was an affectionate nickname bestowed on Jan Hendrik by his grandmother. It’s fitting, then, that the chef would pass this name on to his most personal culinary project to date. Situated at Tswalu Kalahari, one of South Africa’s most exclusive private game reserves, Klein JAN celebrates the Kalahari’s unique culinary offering and elevates it to world-class status.

Internships at Klein JAN are offered for a duration of between three and twelve months and include, return flights to Tswalu from Cape Town or Johannesburg, shared accommodation, student salary, staff meal at the restaurant with every service, service uniform, staff transport on the reserve and return flights to Cape Town or Johannesburg during cycle leave.
