Heerlike kuierplaas met stilte en vars lug as toegif!

Ons het op Rooipan oornag op pad huis toe vanaf die Kgalagadi Nasionale Park. Ons het heerlik gekuier en is spyt dat ons so gou moes padgee want hier kan jy nou rerig tot volgende jaar kuier en gesels! Die gasvrou, Lizette, is 'n lopende ensiklopedie en dra breë kennis van die omgewing en geskiedenis van die Soutgordel en sy mense. Hierdie boeregemeenskap is van die uithouers en aanhouers van ons land! Ons kom definitief weer kuier! Baie dankie vir jul gasvryheid, Lizette en Daantjie. Ons voel soos familie!

Lovely picnic farm with silence and fresh air as a bonus!

We spent the night at Rooipan on the way home from the Kgalagadi National Park. We had a great time and regret that we had to leave so soon because here you can visit and chat until next year! The hostess, Lizette, is a walking encyclopedia and has broad knowledge of the environment and history of the Salt Belt and its people. This farming community is one of the keepers and keepers of our country! We will definitely visit again! Thank you very much for your hospitality, Lizette and Daantjie. We feel like family!

Bitter lekker.

Die gasvryheid van die eienaars was baie spesiaal en so lekker. Hulle het ons telkemale gevra of ons enige iets kort en het seker gemaak ons is tevrede met alles. Ons het heerlik gebraai die aand, dis 'n lieflike plaas en blyplek en ons sal dit oor en oor aanbeveel. Julle plek is tops en my man, Andries, en sy sussie het die eienaars geken en daarom was die kuier soveel meer spesiaal en jare se gesels is nogsteeds nie ingehaal nie.

Bitterly delicious.

The hospitality of the owners was very special and so nice. They asked us repeatedly if we needed anything and made sure we were satisfied with everything. We had a great barbecue that evening, it's a lovely farm and place to stay and we would recommend it over and over again. Your place is top notch and my husband, Andries, and his sister knew the owners and that's why the visit was so much more special and years of talking still haven't been caught up.

Heerlik en ontspannend. Perfek.

Plek is goed geleë en naby die grootpad. Eenheid het alle verwagtinge oorskry. Aandag aan detail is verstommend. Beskuit is tuisgebak, braai is vol hout net reg vir aansteek, koffie is tops, Lizette is 'n uitstekende gasheer. Sommer lekker tuis gevoel.

Delicious and relaxing. Perfect.

Place is well located and close to the highway. Unity exceeded all expectations. Attention to detail is amazing. Biscuits are home-baked, braai is full of wood just ready for lighting, coffee is top, Lizette is an excellent host. Sommer nice feeling at home.

Comfortable, hospitable stop en route to Kgalagadi Park.

Enjoyable night over at Rooipan in comfortable home away from home accommodation. Hospitable, helpful hosts. Lizette gave us interesting history of the farms and water supply to the Kalahari farming community and settlements. We encourage her to write an account of this, or would be a worthwhile article in Weg / Go! or Country Life Magazine.

Aangenaam en gemaklik.

Vriendelike ontvangs en baie mooi boeke om te lees in die kamer wat beter is as enige selfoonopvangs. Sou aanbeveel dat daar dalk aanwysbordjies opgerig word om te sê waar mens moet aanmeld as jy inry op die plaaswerf.

Pleasant and comfortable.

Friendly welcome and lots of nice books to read in the room which is better than any cell phone reception. Would recommend that there might be signposts erected to say where one should sign in when driving onto the farmyard.

Phantastic hosts, great location.

We stayed at the Desert Bloom cottage, a cosy place close to the pool. Anyway, the pool was a real lifesaver for us in the Kalahari climate. Lizette and Daniel are fantastic hosts, and Lizette is a tremendous chef. We travelled SA for 8 weeks, but got the best food of the whole journey at the Rooipan Guest House.

Absoluut fantasties!

Pragtige oasis in die pragtige Kalahari, stukkie paradys tussen die duine. Die egpaar van Rooipan is baie vriendelik en het ons dadelik tuis laat voel. Die egpaar het ons allerhande staaltjies vertel van Rooipan se geskiedenis en die pragtige omgewing. Die woonstel is pragtig en die swembad is heerlik om in af te koel, wat die kinders tot die uiters benut het. Die egpaar het uit hul plek gegaan om ons welkom te laat voel en ons was heerlik bederf met die lekkerste eet- en drinkgoed. Ons wil net vir Rooipan en sy mense sê baie dankie vir heerlike verblyf, al die bederfies en baie dankie dat hulle hul stukkie Kalahari met ons gedeel het.

Absolutely fantastic!

Beautiful oasis in the lovely Kalahari. A piece of paradise between all the dunes. Friendly host couple who made us feel right at home. They even shared some anecdotes about Rooipan's history and the lovely surroundings. The flat is beautiful and the cool swimming pool is ideal for a hot day. The children really made the most of the pool. The couple went out of their way to ensure that we felt welcome and provided delicious snacks and drinks. We would just like to thank everyone at Rooipan for the lovely accommodation, all the treats and for sharing a piece of the Kalahari with us.
