Latest Reviews

If you look for an individual holiday you must visit Rooiberg Safaris. From the first moment on Pieter and his team is looking after you and will fulfill every wish you have. The setting is beautiful, the lodge feels like home after a few hours. Willem is a brilliant chef cooking for you whatever you like.
This is how we spent our days: In the morning we had a game drive of two hours, just us four as a family together with Pieter who showed us all the different animals living on this huge farm. When we came back Willem had prepared a full warm and cold breakfast buffet. After breakfast we relaxed at the pool watching the animals walking by. In the early afternoon we went for a hike to find Pieter who had already taken the picnic into the bushes. On return to the lodge we sat down, had cold drinks and the kids cooled down in the pool. The dinner as a five course meal again proofed Willem's great capabilities. We were finishing the days with some glasses of best South African wine in front of the fire listening to the noises of nature.
Thank you to everybody at Rooiberg Safaris. You made our first visit to South Africa very special and we will for sure come back again.
