About Rooipoort Gasteplaas

Colesberg is not the only halfway stop between Johannesburg and Cape Town. Rooipoort Guest Farm nestles near Philiipstown in the Upper Karoo. The graceful farmstead reflects typical Karoo architecture with wooden floors and ceilings. The 14 inch thick walls keep out the heat in summer and the cold in winter.

The Fourie's are the seventh generation on the farm. Rooipoort is the third oldest farm in the district and is a crown farm never bought or sold. Four generations have been living on the farmstead.This is a 4 000 ha working sheep farm with various game species, rock engravings and the most beautiful walking routes. Almond orchards have been established.

There are ample opportunities for bird watching as there are a Black Eagle breeding pair on the farm as well as Blue cranes and various other species. Delight yourself in a large collection of art on display inside as well as outside in the tree-filled garden and the thrill of feeding the

Koi fish. The swimming pool has a stunning view on the almond orchard.

                          The farm is beautiful and the accommodation facilities are wonderful! We expected rooms, but got small flats. The units comfortably accommodated our family of 5 as well as my sister with her infant.

                          We loved our 2 night stay at Rooipoort. We so enjoyed the open spaces and peace and tranquility. We loved the farm dogs who went on walks with us. It's a working farm, so we were fortunate enough to see newborn lambs. The hosts were friendly and welcoming and supplied us with extra wood for the fireplace as an added bonus! Beds were lovely and warm with winter sheets and blankets!

                          We loved the ambience of the working farm, and the accommodation was comfortable and more than adequate. Kay was an excellent host and most accommodating.
