Situated 270 km from Johannesburg on the Waterval Boven - Rocky Drift Private Nature Reserve embraces an enclosed valley of approximately 257 hectares of some of the most beautiful mountain country to be found in the Waterval Boven district.

The climate is typical of summer rainfall areas. Winter and summer mean temperatures of between 6 degrade C in winter and 34 degrade C in summer, can be expected. Nourished by the Joubert Spruit tributary of the Elands River, the natural water supply is fountain fed from the mountain tops and of the highest quality.

At no stage during the past 60 years has the stream ever dried up. The Nature Reserve is ecologically contained and home to many species of fauna e.g. Bushbuck, Baboon, Klipspringer, Duiker, Steenbok, Vaal Reedbuck, Vervet Monkeys, Leopard, Genet, Rooikat, Rock Pythons etc. Bird life includes, Black Eagle, Steppe Buzzard, various Kites and Falcon.

Rich in natural and South African history, the kloof (gorge) and slopes of the valley once housed President Paul Kruger`s Commandos during the period of his escape to exile via Lourenco Marques (Maputo). Circular rock encampments with old Martini Henry rifle shells and enamel mugs used by the Boer soldiers and Scouts are sometimes unearthed on the property.

Ons het baie lekker gekuier in die Webster huis. Whiskey het ons mooi opgepas en ons gaan hom mis. Judas was baie hulpvaardig en het gesorg vir heerlike warm water. Die lieflike natuurskoon het ons bekoor en dit was heerlik om net te ontspan. Al dingetjie wat bietjie gepla het, was die toestand van die pad vanaf die teerpad. Dit sal ook baie help as daar by die teerpad 'n aanduiding is na Rockeydrift. Ons sal graag weer hier gaan bly.

Baie lekker daar gebly,ou Judas het gesorg dat ons permanent lekker warm water het. Die omgewing is pragtig,ons het lekker ontspan daar en ons almal was hartseer toe ons moes terug gaan huis toe. Die kinders het die skilpaaie baie geniet,die een is sommer Skillie gedoop! Whiskey die hond is baie vriendelik en so gehoorsaam,die arme hond het net erg las van borsluise. Wanneer ons eendag weer daar gaan vakansie hou,sal ons weer daar in die Webster huis gaan bly.
