About Terra Rouge

Terra Rouge is a Kalahari sheep farm operated by the owners, only 45 km from the Kgalagadi National Park’s Namibian border post, Mata Mata, and one km from the main road and the C15. We are situated in a very quiet and natural area.

The farm only has three bungalows and a campsite. The bungalows are all private, but not too far from the main house. The campsite is one km from the main house on the banks of the dry Auob river, covered by huge camel thorn trees. Guests are free to walk wherever they like and we also have a high dune close to the accommodation which is perfect for sun downers.

We have a meerkat family living close to our house and they can be seen in the mornings and late afternoons as they move around freely. There is a duiker who made the front of one of the bungalows his home, he’s been here for two years, and we have other unexpected bird life and wildlife in the riverbed.

We sell wood and meat, mostly organic lamb chops, for barbecues. The owner can do a side dish or bake fresh bread by prior arrangement. A take away dinner can be organised for guests to enjoy in the privacy of their bungalow, outside on the veranda, or on a dune. Breakfast picnic baskets can also be ordered. Please let me know well in advance if we need to get fresh supplies as we are far from a town and we have children in the school that we sometimes have to attend to.

Wat 'n wonderlike ondervinding. Pragtige plaas, kraakvars lakens, om nie te praat van die lekker beskuit en moerkoffie nie. Wonderlike, gasvrye mense en ons gaan definitief weer daar 'n draai maak en langer bly. Slegs 45 km van Mata Mata, die perfekte stop voor die Kgalagadi.

Wonderful place to stay when visiting Kgalagadi. Clean, comfortable accommodation. We also had a delicious home cooked meal.

We loved our two night stay. The campsites are large and beautifully situated in a dry, grassy river bed between dunes, just far enough away from the farm buildings. The ablutions were basic but had everything you need. Glad the toilets were slightly away from the showers. There are nice walks or 4x4 driving routes in the red dunes. We are contemplating going back next year for 3 nights at this and some other sites we liked. The farmer made up a meat pack for us, and there is a farm stall very close by for cold drinks and snacks if you run out, as there are no towns anywhere near.

Our chalet was more than adequate (clean and comfortable, with fridge and microwave), with a most welcome and very good air conditioner. The dinner was also excellent, and there are ample opportunities for short hikes on the farm to enjoy the Kalahari scenery.
