Rooms were large, very comfortable and private although having the basins next to the cooker and coffee station was odd. A warm welcome and attentive service was appreciated. The food was excellently presented and the star gazing was most enjoyable although the TV screen for the presentation could have been larger and mounted higher.

A quiet, laid-back place almost in the middle of nowhere. A privately owned reserve open to a few, select guests. The stargazing, including the on-site presentation offered, is excellent. The wine tasting and the varied food as well. We especially enjoyed the Cheetah experience, a chance to see these beautiful animals fairly close. The staff make sure that the guests have a pleasant stay. I would go back there any time. Just make sure to have enough time at your hands upon arrival as it takes approx. 20-30 minutes from the main gate to the lodge.

Kara & Cade were amazing hosts, both ensuring that we had a pleasant stay. Kara's knowledge during the stargazing as well as her bubbly personality made the experience so much more enjoyable. We look forward to our return visit.

Good star presentations and views. Very Good Food. Excellent Accommodation off the grid. No ESKOM schedules needed here. Power was enough to run Cpap machine. Good for people that seeks nature and quiet surroundings. Power was enough to run Cpap machine.

We spent 3 nights at Rogge Cloof in August. Hoping to see snow and do some stargazing, both of which didn't happen thanks to weather conditions. Having said that, we had the most wonderful stay at Rogge Cloof reserve. A little slice of heaven in Sutherland! The accommodation was luxurious, each cabin has its own patio area and a fireplace. They even provide hot water bottles - yes it was THAT cold!! But the highlight of our time there was the incredible staff who made our stay so memorable. Thank you to Cara and Sam for their hospitality. They were incredibly friendly, funny and helpful. Nothing was too much trouble. And to Rashied who cooked the most delicious fare, we rolled back home having eaten so much! Highly recommend staying here and would say definitely worth a 3 night stay.Loved it. But will come back in summer to experience the reserve in a different (and warmer) season.

We were initially unsure of what to expect but were pleasantly surprised by staff friendliness and the good accommodation. The highlights were the activities. The stargazing was amazing , fieldtrip very informative while the hike absolutely enjoyable. Only negative was the terrible drive to get to the start of the hike. However , despite this we will do this again . Sam and Carla were very knowledgeable about their subjects.

We loved it and did not want to leave. Have already told so many people about Rooge Cloof and definitely will be back. The staff were wonderful and went out of their way, e.g. they baked a birthday cake for my husband.

We recently spent a weekend at Rogge Cloof, a long promised treat for our grandson and had a truly unforgettable experience. We were accommodated in the Orion Suites which were comfortable and charming, dined in style in the warm dining room, did a couple of the tours on offer and had a look at the stars after the best presentation on offer in Sutherland. The staff were really helpful and enthusiastic. The overall feeling of our family is that we will be going back to do a couple of the tours for which we did not have time. A Wonderful weekend all round, for which many thanks

Incredible location. We spoke at length to the new manager who explained that since opening a couple years ago, they decided to make upgrades in various departments to enhance the experience. Id say it’s currently a decent 4 star. Game/fossil drive and dining room was simply amazing. Rooms were also good. Slight shower pressure issue at the time but they sorted it out immediately. The room is super comfortable.. im a very fussy sleeper and have a Coco Mat Triton bed at home. Honestly, the bed was incredible. Food was good, not exceptional, but still very good. Except the home made bread which was insanely good. And then theres the stars! i ride bikes in the cederberg/karoo often and love the region more than anywhere in the world. And for stargazing you cant top Sutherland.

Visited Sutherland for the first time and was amazed by the attention to detail including the personal attention from all staff. Sam, Cara, Heike and Sumari spoilt us for choice and which included the food on offer. Spent time at a lecture on the Milky Way and were also enthralled by a sighting of a recent fossil find.
