Amazing place
Rogge Cloof is a place where you can come to rest. An amazing second time at Rogge Cloof. Definitely a place you need to visit for the best way to hear the stillness. No social media, TV etc. Camp Escape will definitely be back!

Stay at Rogge Cloof

Excellent location with beautiful views. We stayed in the Pollux unit, which was luxuriously furnished, with everything we needed. We loved the firepit. The staff felt like family and walked the extra mile to make our stay enjoyable.

A magnificent escape into a Karoo paradise

Andre and Corlia are simply brilliant hosts, friendly, knowledgeable, enthusiastic, professional, helpful, and everything else. Such a wonderful experience in a huge park that oozes history with its fossils and dinosaur footprints, has everything for the animal lover from antelope to cheetah, beautiful stargazing with a captivating amateur astronomer, wonderful opportunities for hiking and cycling, plenty of space for families, and cosy ambiance for couples. All I can say is treat yourself to a wonderful break at this 5 star establishment. One of the most seamless blends of raw nature and extraordinary comfort I can imagine. I will be back...again and again.

Starry starry night

Fascinating to see and learn about the night sky, so crystal clear no need for a telescope. And all from the comfort of the garden outside our cottage with a glass of home grown chilled white wine in hand.

What's not to like?

Wanting to get away from people, cities, highways, and distractions, we were on the road to Rogge Cloof within 24 hours of a phone call. All my questions were answered promptly so that I could prepare, pack, and travel efficiently. My two non-negotiables were pet-friendly and WiFi. What is important is that they use solar power, so that you can leave your power-hungry appliances at home. You can plug in a laptop and charge your phones. Cooking is on a gas hob and oven, and an outside braai. In winter the wood-burning stove will keep the room cosy. Hot water is plentiful from the gas geyser. The borehole water is sweet. The cottage is smart and clean and fully supplied for self-catering. We chose an out-of-season weekend getaway, and were happy to be alone in the rocky Karoo veld, with the stars above. Absolutely top value for money. André and Corlia are the perfect hosts. We want to be here in spring!

Star Quality

We were a group of 28 people on Company Conference. André and his team were incredible hosts. They were friendly, caring and looked after our safety during a hike up the extinct volcano. Their knowledge of the area is amazing. They stopped on the way back to share with us the discovery of Fossils on the property and showed us where a Dinosaur will be excavated. Their hospitality knows no borders and we received unexpected gifts like hats for everyone and several bottles of exclusive wine for a number of our staff. Stargazing is incredible here with unbelievably clear skies. No TV's in rooms as it is not needed! It is an unforgettable experience and everyone of us will go back to Rogge Cloof one day.

Many thanks for sending through the pictures as you promised. I would also like to say a huge thank you to you all at Rogge Cloof for making our stay so wonderful. When we got back to Cape Town after our trip to Kimberley and were reflecting on the week we all, without reservation, felt that the time at Rogge Cloof was the highlight of our trip. It really was most enjoyable and we have recommended Rogge Cloof to a number of our friends. We enjoy following the development of your project on Facebook, it is very interesting and we wish you luck with the Cheetah programme.

"Become a star"

Here you will be star-gazing with astronomer Lucas, and be taken care of heavenly and with warmth by Corlia, André, Anna-Marie and Amanda. Your spirits will be reset. You will have karoo lamb, and wine that stems from vines at 1500 meters. Fossils that accumulated at a watering hole eons of years ago will catch your fascination. The springbok will jump across the road on your way to the Village where you will be staying. This is where your place in the universe and in time will be understood. This ambitious team has great plans for the future and for the cheetahs in rehab, so we are coming back.

Incredible Experience

We visited Rogge Cloof as a group of 26 students and academics and they went out of their way to make our experience truly incredible. From watching the introduction of 'Shadow' the newest cheetah to Rogge Cloof to the amazing game drive, food and superb accommodation. It really is a place that is difficult to leave! We certainly hope to visit again in the future. What an amazing, amazing place filled with the kindest and most hospitable people!

Star Visit

We spent three nights at Rogge Cloof and left feeling a desire not to leave. Our accommodation was so comfortable. We were not expecting such a beautiful setting and our star gazing with a delicious meal at the restaurant. From a trip that was to see SALT and view the stars we left happy in the thought that we need to make more plans for another visit.

One of the better places we've stayed on the outskirts of Sutherland, Northern Cape. Thanks to the friendly staff, the stunning accommodation, the great breakfast and the fact that you can do your own little game drive put the cherry on top!! We saw herds of Eland, Rheebuck, a few Black Wildebeest and literally 100's of Springbok! Rogge Cloof are bringing in some Cheetah and possibly Brown Hyena this space! :) And last but not least...thanks for the awesome "Spaceport Karoo" cap we received on arrival. My colleague and I was super impressed! :)Thank you for making our stay extra great. Any nature lover would love this biosphere reserve.

I spent the long weekend here with my family, it’s a beautiful game reserve with the wild life right outside your door step. The view of the stars at night is breathtaking, if you have a telescope or good camera, be sure to bring it along.
The staff are unbelievably friendly and helpful, it’s clear that they love what they do.
Be sure to take the Game Reserve Drive and check out the Fossil Field (where you can find fossils from millions of years ago!!)

'A true gem!'

Rogge Cloof is an exceptional place!

We were only able to stay one night, unfortunately. However, the reception we received by André was outstanding. Every staff member we met, had introduced themselves by name, and gave us so much information about the farm and the sustainability that they promote on the farm.

Gemini Pollux was the name of our cottage. A beautiful, quaint and clean home for the evening. We were in awe from the moment we entered the farm. Just when we thought we had seen it all, from the exceptional welcoming, the beautiful cottage, the alluring wildlife and the captivating landscapes; the sunset began to show its colours. The stars came out and lit up the sky for miles to see. With a fire flickering to keep us warm, the stars put on a show that cannot be described.

Upon departing our lovely cottage, we headed for the breakfast cottage, situated in a little valley. Only to be welcomed by friendly staff, whom carried us on their hands like royalty. Their friendliness and willingness to serve us was absolutely astounding. We can truly say that we were sad to leave. However, their exceptional wines which we purchased will bring back remembrance of a fantastic place with exceptional people and beautiful scenery. It was an honor to have met the team of Rogge Cloof.

This is a place that will definitely see us again!

'A special place'

From the moment we arrived, to the moment we left, Corlia and Andre were welcoming and attentive. The accommodation was well appointed and comfortable. The attention to sustainability was commendable.

The sheer wide open space of the estate was awe inspiring and the plentiful game lovely to see. It even has its own volcano. A few days before we arrived the rains had exposed what I could only describe as a field of dinosaur bones which Andre and Corlia were happy to show us. I believe there are some interesting plans for this fantastic find.

Soon after we departed my son asked me when we would be back. Rogge Cloof is a real eye opener for adults and kids alike.

Thanks for everything guys

What a wonderful experience we had on the game drive.

The warm welcome when we arrived was so special.

Inge, aka Sarah, has a wealth of knowledge of not only the farm but also the surrounding areas.

Although cold we were amazed at how the antelope roam the area so freely.

Coming back to reception after the drive was a welcome sight after the winds had picked up just a few kilometres after we left the village.

The food, first time I ate and enjoyed skilpadjies, the lamb chops was excellent and the Malva pudding was great. Shirley and Aaron enjoyed the Ox Tail. This all thanks to Marzanne and Tegan.

It was also nice meeting Andre and his story of how Facebook started.

We will be back to do the Salpeterkop drive.

Onverwagse Wonderlikheid!

Rogge Cloof was 'n onverwagse gelukkie wat ons getref het. Ons het net 'n dag voor die tyd besluit om Sutherland toe te gaan en het toe besluit op Rogge Cloof. Dit is 'n fantasiese plek! Die plaas is 16 hektaar en hulle is deel van die Black Sky Reserve wat beteken dat daar geen buite ligte in die aand brand nie en hulle gebruik solar energie. Die mense daar is fantasies. Dit voel eerder asof jy by goeie vriende gaan kuier. Van die ontvangs area waar jy jou sleutels optel, is dit nog 11 km na die huisies waar mens bly. Dit is tjoepstil en jy kry absoluut vrede vir jou siel. Daar is heelwat wild (meestal bokke) en baie paadjies wat jy rondry om hulle te sien. Die huisies is fantasties toegerus, met groot vensters om die omgewing te kan beleef. Ontbyt was ook by die tarief ingesluit, wat 'n aangename ervaring was. Al die personeel is vreeslik vriendelik! Ons is net jammer dat ons net vir een aand kon bly! Rogge Cloof sal ons beslis gou weer sien, maar volgende keer is dit vir langer!

Wow... we could not have asked for a better place to stay to experience the Upper Veld in the Karoo. The house was perfect. Very clean, all the amenities we could have asked for if we wanted to cook, and perfectly situated out on the high desert plain so we could view the stars and watch the natural habitat. We had a three bedroom, 3.5 bath house that sleeps 6 adults comfortably. Very large porch overhang around three sides of the house for covered viewing. The staff… we can’t say enough about how helpful they were on our visit. Andre, Corlia, and Riana were all perfect hosts. Andre’s guided tour up Salpeterkop was one of the highlights of this trip to South Africa. The morning breakfast in the lodge is to die for! Corlia and Riana gave us great advise on places to eat in Sutherland at night. You can visit without an SUV and they will take you into the park… but I would highly recommend coming with an SUV so you can drive on the reserve. Game drives available if you want. Also… fat wheel mountain bikes available to rent.
