Rockydrift Private Nature Reserve in Waterval Boven
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 such as bush buck, baboon, klipspringer, duiker, steenbok, vaal reed buck, vervet monkeys, leopard, genet, rooikat and rock pythons to name a few. There is also an abundance of bird life, including black eagle, steppe buzzard as well as various kites and falcons.
Rich in natural and South African history, the kloof and slopes of the valley once housed President Paul Kruger's commandos during the period of his escape to exile via Lourenco Marques, now 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.

Reviews for Rockydrift Private Nature Reserve
Quiet peaceful resort, lots of beautiful nature all around. Well equipped clean cottages. The only reason i have not given more stars is due to our stay being cut short due to poor admin on the side of Rocky Drift, where they double booked a unit.
Beautiful views. Only problem is we cannot take the car to the front door to offload but its a very peaceful place.
Gorgeous setting and well-equipped cottages. I loved my stay here. The hike to all the pools was a highlight.
My whole family had a wonderful stay here in this truly beautiful place. One of the most peaceful and tranquil places we have ever been. Everyone (kids aged 1 to 9 plus mum and dad) loved it. Just be aware that the nearest decent supermarket is in Belfast, the other side of the toll gate. Visit it now before it becomes more developed.
"My stay was perfect"
Hi, my stay was perfect, my family enjoyed it, and thanks to safari now.com and the lady named Kelly, who was very helpful in giving us quotes. You should get more staff like that. I will be visiting the place again.
