Rooidam-se-huisie is a small cottage in the veld. You will have the place all to yourself. No neighbours and no mobile reception. Experience the peace and quiet of the Great Karoo at it's best. Sit by the braai in the Muisbos-skerm at night and enjoy the night-sky with a million stars. Go for walks in the veld - or take your cycle - during the day to discover the secrets of this beautiful and desolate landscape. Arrive in January and you can feast on the Mulberry tree that is close by...

Our cottage is very private and isolated, but you are close to a main road and within easy access of the town where you can buy all essentials. There are a few lovely restaurants to visit. In an emergency we do have a docter and hospital in town.
As you will be living in the veld - and on a working sheep-farm - it is important that you do not disturb the sheep. Precaution must also be taken into consideration as there are wild animals in the Karoo - including poisonous animals like snakes and scorpions. As a rule these animals are scared of humans - but it is good practise to keep the front door closed - especially at night.
