Chef Willem, while preparing for the daily opening of the restaurant, posed his sumptuous dishes for me and yet again he just excelled himself! This is just a little eye candy to warm up those tastebuds for the menus we will soon start working from.
We plan to open, by booking only, but on a daily basis. The public can phone and ask if there is an opening and enjoy a variety of menus, made on popular demand. Sushi and Seafood is only one of a few options that'll be available for those hungry tummies!
Executive Chef Willem has 2 decades experience to his name and served in some of the most prestigious lodges in SA. He will finally be able to show his talents to the whole world when the Restaurant opens to the public daily. By booking only, if only 10 min before, will ensure you a taste of his, by now famous, marvellous cuisine!

"I have a dream..."
Words that inspired a whole country to move in a different direction. When you decide on a dream, the going can get quite tough, very fast. Deciding to have a different view, daring to look at the world from what might be considered: 'not the norm' Challenging every belief that our dream not only cán be achieved, but flourish, has proven to be an arduous, emotionally horrible and time-consuming challenge beyond belief.
But is that why you have a dream? Because you dare to. You dare to think differently, dare to take chances and believe in what you're doing.
It only takes one visit to the lodge and farm to see why the dream stays alive.
The peace, quiet, sacredness of game walking free, the wonder of walking between plants internationally unique and believing that this is worth protecting at all costs.
Co-Owners Pieter & Elsofie Pitout decided to choose to rather a dream than follow. Daring to believe, rather than the slavery of an ordinary life. A really tough journey that took every once of determination and will they could muster. But 100% worth it.
Come look for yourself what nature can do for you!
Elsofie Pitout started out small, by opening and maintaining a 16 page newspaper for the small town Utrecht. She moved to Cape Town to finish a degree in Photography, Graphic Design & Marketing. After opening a studio, where she did portrait, corporate & fashion photography as well as the online marketing for several companies, she took a personal break of a year before tackling the task of marketing Rooiberg Safaris' marketing, as well as developing and establishing the Lodge as co-owner and founder. Rooiberg Safaris built, furnished and profitable in less than a year, the alternative route and view that co-owners Pieter & Elsofie chose, clearly a winning recipe.
