Description
Situated 290 km from Johannesburg on the Waterval Boven, Rocky Drift Private Nature Reserve. This fine establishment embraces an enclosed valley of approximately 257 hectares and some of the most beautiful mountain country to be found in the Waterval Boven district. The climate is typical of summer rainfall areas with winter and summer mean temperatures of between six degrees in winter and 34 degrees in summer to 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 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.
