Rolbaken is situated approximately 40kms from the town of Oudtshoorn and provides an excellent base to explore all that the area has to offer. To get to us, you will be travelling on a dirt road. It is perfectly safe to drive this in a 2-wheel drive vehicle as it is maintained regularly. On the way to us, you will be driving through some of the most beautiful scenery in the Little Karoo, with red earth and aloes in abundance and fields peppered with ostriches and sheep.
