Buffalo in the Western Cape? Are they water buffalo? No, they are real African Cape Buffalo, one of the Big 5!
We invite you to come and experience our world. Rooshoek will take your breath away, not only because of the splendour of the mountains and the unspoiled environment - but you will also be able to appreciate some of our country’s most wonderful game in their natural habitat.
The species you can expect to see are Buffalo, Sable antelope, Eland, Oryx, Redhartebees, Blackwildebees, Springbok, Bontebok, Kudu, Duiker, Steenbok, Fallow Deer, Zebra, and some small cat species if you are lucky. There are also a wide variety of birds to be seen.
We tailor-make trips according to the needs of our visitors. The best time for game drives is early in the morning or in the afternoon. It takes 3 to 3,5 hours to share all our animals with you. You are more than welcome to bring your own snacks and drinks along.
If you book in advance, we can cater for anything, ranging from a picnic at the river under the old oak trees, to a sundowner on the mountain.
2 to 3 Hours’ drive on an open vehicle. You are welcome to bring some refreshments to enjoy on the game drive
You can also come and have a picnic after your Game Drive next to the river, under the trees above the dam, or in the Magic Pixy Forrest.
For the 4x4 picnic adventurists there is a picnic spot in the mountain, only accessible with your 4x4 vehicle. The view is spectacular
