Overview

Situated 270 km from Johannesburg on the Waterval-Boven/782-0-1-1'>Waterval Boven - Nelspruit Road, Rocky Drift Private Nature Reserve embraces an enclosed valley of approximately 252 hectares of some of the most beautiful mountain country to be found in the Waterval-Boven/782-0-1-1'>Waterval Boven district. The climate is typical of summer rainfall areas. Winter and summer mean temperatures of between 6 degrees in winter and 34 degrees 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 Reed buck, 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.

I will definitely book at Rockys Drift again. Enjoyed my rest in a beautiful setting.
- Gerhard Blignaut27 Jul 2016

Just would like to thank you for the lovely time we had at Rocky drift.The scenery and the accommodation was out of this world. We really had a good rest and Judas and Lina were always around to assist. The weekend was like our own home - comfortable and our every need was seen to. We plan on coming back again with our family as we really had a beautiful relaxing time....
God bless.

No electricity for the duration of the weekend
We asked for candles, no provision were made for the lack of electricity.
The servant's kids are all over the place, not very private.
The back yard is untidy - full of rubbish.
The dog is very cute, but I don't know if he is looked after.
The place has lots of potential, but it is not well managed.
We didn't expect luxury for this price, but we expected a bit more.


- Nonnie Van Wyk21 Jul 2014

Wow ! From the very friendly staff to the beautiful accommodation everything was perfect. Everything was clean and all needed was there, it felt like we were at our own home... We enjoyed our stay.
