Under angry cumulonimbus clouds and vertical sandstone cliffs, we rear fine Angus Cattle, grow beans, soybeans and maize on Roodepoort Farm outside of Clarens. It is here where we have built, restored and renovated 2 warm and glad cottages flanking the stately centenarian farmhouse. Every Friday night there's a steady cloud of dust that leads to Roodepoort Farm from the metropolis, Coolers in the back, and excited kids on the back-seat and eager folks wanting to kindle friendships and relationships.

There are 5, fully-equipped, self-catering cottages available, plus 1 additional rondavel, not equipped for self-catering, that can accommodate 2 people, also available. All units are non-smoking units but smoking is allowed outside of the units, but cigarette butts are to be disposed of safely in the provided ashtrays or trash cans as this is a high fire risk area. The water is from a fountain so it is safe to drink and there is cell phone reception in the area. Remember to bring your own torch, Tabbard, two-point plug, firelighters and matches.

You can have a lot of fun in a Jozi minute, but there's some things you can't do inside those city limits. And that is what we bring to you. Roodepoort Farm in Clarens offers many activities for the visitors including nature walks, opportunities for birding and photography. Mostly it's about having you relax in comfort and for you to experience the beauty and tranquillity of a working farm. You might also get a glimpse of the free-roaming blesbuck, duikers, reedbuck, rheebuck, eland, jackal, and baboons.

All units can be reached with a sedan motor, unless very muddy or snowy. There is a cycling route around the mountain, 20 km, and a 5 km mountain climbing excursion which you may attempt at your own risk.

This region is truly breathtaking with caves, dams, and other great land features that are exposed and weathered from the dawn of time.

Please stay on the roads and leave the gates as you found them. Should you wish to use the Weber braai please bring along your own charcoal and firelighters. Wood will be supplied for 1 night only. Please take extra care when making a fire in the built braai area during windy periods and dry season. Clement, the farm-hand, is available to do the dishes and make the beds at an extra charge, please pay him directly.

You can come as you are as there ain't no dress code, just some rural rules that you need to know: Don't mess with the bull as he can get real mean; Don't forget to shut the gate; Stay out of the beans; If it is green and steaming, don’t step in it; Respect all things great and small; Do not play with fire, and treasure the memories.
