Rose Cottage Gariep Dam (AA Recommended Accommodation) is a self catering guesthouse complex that is situated half-way between Johannesburg and Cape Town and is only 5 minutes from the N1 highway.

It is an ideal pit-stop for the weary guest simply wanting to break their journey to have a single night sleepover or for the guest wanting to spend some extra days enjoying what the beautiful Gariep Dam village and surrounding area has to offer.

Soak up the crispy Karoo air, look up at night sky and see billions of stars, identify the “milky way”, watch the satellites pass overhead. Food for your soul!!
