Rogge Cloof

Home to the Greatest Heavens on Earth!

The origins of the farm and dark sky reserve Rogge Cloof (meaning rye ravine) date back to 1756, when Joachim Scholtz, the son of German and Nordic immigrants to Africa, acquired the property. Since then over more than 250 years, various owners have loved, nurtured and developed these hostile lands enduring lions, droughts, snow and freezing winds. Located at an altitude of between 1400 to 1700 metres, Rogge Cloof hosts magnificent clear skies and expansive plains.

Being slightly higher than the surrounding Sutherland area, which, combined with the unpolluted Karoo darkness, provides a very special opportunity to view and capture the total magnificence of the skies.
Accommodation options include self catering units as well as fully catered units and activities on offer apart from star gazing and enjoying the “Nothingness” are Nature & Fossil Drives, wine tasting, cycling, hiking and much more. Perfect for romantic couples looking for a getaway under the stars as much as families wanting to spend time together, Rogge Cloof offers something for everyone!
