Don’t drive past the old red bicycle that indicates the turn-off to Rooikloof
Guest Farm situated 2.8km from the picturesque village of Sutherland famous for
its dark skies and bright stars.
Accommodation, ideal for families and groups, consists of four well restored and luxuriously furnished self catering (fully equipped) farm houses - Huis Harpuis (sleeps 10 people = 3x double- and 2x 2 single bed) and Renosterbos Cottage (sleeps 6 people = 2x double- and 1x 2 single bed). Completely renovated Koesnaatjie 1 & 2 (both have gas fridges, -heating and -stoves) provide 1X double bed plus leather sleeper sofa for kids. ( see October 2010 Weg Magazine pg 20.) All cottages have their own braai facilities with all the necessary equipment as well as the necessary fire places to keep the worst cold at bay.
On the farm there are several trails, for walking and mountain-biking, through typical Karoo vegetation. If you do not want to leave the farm there are various games for your entertainment. These include table tennis, darts, boules and various board games. Alternatively why not consider a night time guided tour of S.A.L.T. (advance booking required).
The farm is also home to smaller wild animals like rock rabbit (dassies), mongoose, hares, baboons, springbok and grey rhebuck. Bird and butterfly watchers certainly wont leave disappointed.
In the cold winter months Rooikloof has been known to have heavy snowfalls and sub-zero temperatures. All houses have fireplaces and we sell local wood on the farm. Huis Harpuis and Renosterbos Cottage have heaters, electric blankets and warm bedding in each room. Both the Koesnaatjie Cottages have 11 tog feather duvets, warm water bags and gas heaters in the bedrooms to take the bite of the winter nights ... very romantic !
After a good winter-raining season the wild flowers in the area (August to October) are spectacular. A wide variety of annual and bulbous wild flowers grow on the farm - and nothing beats the scent of evening flowers at dusk.
If you are tired of the rat race and are looking for somewhere to escape city stress, this is the ideal place to find peace and quiet - you can almost hear the silence, interrupted only by the odd farm sound of a windmill or a cock crowing to announce daybreak.
Hannatjie Sieberhagen looks forward to welcome you at Rooikloof.
