More info: The live webcam at Rogge Cloof is focused on a vital water source of the area.
Rogge Cloof Private Nature Reserve is located in the Roggeveld (Afrikaans for "rye field"), a plateau located in the Karoo region of the Northern Cape in South Africa. Wild Rye was once plentiful in the area.
Located at an altitude of between 1400 to 1700 metres, Rogge Cloof has a rugged landscape with expansive plains and clear skies and spans an area of over 20 000 hectares.
A variety of animals are located on the reserve, including eland, oryx, black wildebeest, springbok, blesbok, grey rhebok, mountain zebra, steenbok, caracal, jackal, porcupine and aardvark. There are also a host of smaller mammals including cape hares, meerkats and mongoose. Cheetahs on Rogge Cloof are collared and carefully monitored as the Reserve is surrounded by Karoo sheep farms.
As well as African wildlife, Rogge Cloof offers prime stargazing territory with views of the clear dark Karoo skies.
