Die Rots Guesthouse is one of the highly recommended Schoemanskloof guest houses and provides accommodation in 5 guest rooms for tourists visiting the Highlands Meander region.

About Die Rots Guesthouse

Die Rots is tucked away in the scenic Schoemanskloof approximately 40 kilometers from Nelspruit on a farm, which has the Crocodile River running through it. If you visit us in the springtime, the wonderful aroma of the orange blossom fills the air.

The accent is on relaxation, peacefulness and enjoying beautiful views from the deck of the thatched house as well as abundant bird life. Sightings might include a Purple Crested Loerie, Paradise Flycatcher or a Longcrested Eagle. At night you can expect to hear some owls or the African Nightjar.

Small game on the farm includes the Duiker (Red and Grey), Bushbuck, Bushpigs, Genet, Jackal as well as the valleys roaming Hippo’s. The Schoemanskloof is approximate 100 meters higher above sea level than Nelspruit with the result that it has a moderate climate, not too cold in winter and not too hot in summer. An abundance of fresh clean air is available.


There are five (3 double rooms and 2 twin rooms) well appointed luxury en-suite rooms (bath and shower), each with their own private entrance from the deck. A lapa with a sparkling swimming pool is available.


We serve a hearty farm breakfast in the dining room or on the deck. Delicious home cooked dinners, South African style, are available by prior arrangement. There are tea and coffee making facilities available in each room and 24/7 in the lapa.


Ideal to use as a base for exploring the main Lowveld attractions like Sabie waterfalls, Sudwala Caves, Lowveld Botanical Gardens, Kaapse Hoop Pilgrim’s Rest, Gods Window etc. Nearby are quad bikes, 4x4 routes and hiking trails or you can take a leisure stroll on the farm along the beautiful river. Horse riding can be arranged at Kaapse Hoop.

We have approximate two kilometers of Crocodile River frontage and fishing is allowed. If you are brave enough, you can navigate the Crocodile river in a canoe, or kayak (beware of the hippos or the crocodiles). You can laze around the pool or on the deck with a book or novel from our library. At night we can sit around an open fire, gazing into the flames and making small talk. On clear dark nights one can stand in awe of the greatness of our star studded skies.
