Rolbakengreenview

 

The farm nestles in a long valley in the south-western foothills of the Kammanassie Mountains, only 40 km from Oudtshoorn, and has magnificent views of both the Swartberg and Outeniqua Mountains.

Your hosts, Dick and Mary Carr, have been farming here since 2004 and produce free-range eggs and grass fed lamb. Our dream is to rehabilitate the fallow agricultural land and provide additional habitat for the endangered relic Cape Mountain Zebra population that lives in the Kammanassie Mountains and which has now expanded its range onto Rolbaken.

The farm provides great scenery, numerous walks and scrambles, and irrigation dams to swim in. Bring your mountain bike and enjoy the peaceful country roads. Sit on the lawn at night under the breath-taking Karoo sky, with more stars and meteorites than you have ever seen before and enjoy our rural tranquillity.
