About Roossenekal:

Beautiful site, if you can find it. Lots of boulder- climbing. If you take the time to explore the area, you will find lots of places to climb. The best scenery in the middle of the Transvaal Drakensberg. Take your own water with, since the water there is of dubious hygiene(or just take some tequila to sterelise the water.) The rock is very brittle by the cliffs and leopard are very active in the area. Just give the old man staying there some money for diesel. If you plan to camp, remember that it is in the middle of the mountains so it gets very cold at night. Just North of the camping site is a pool where you can bathe in the rainy season.
