Off Warmbaths Road
Rooiberg, situated between Bela Bela (Warmbaths) and Thabazimbi in Limpopo Province, was once the residence of employees of the Rooiberg Tin Mine. When the mine closed down in the early 1990’s the town became deserted and was fast becoming a ghost town.
Luckily a consortium purchased the town and started selling the houses to private buyers. Now most of the houses have been purchased and renovated, mostly by pensioners looking for a quiet and restful place to retire.
The mine single quarters have now been converted into a retirement village, the mine offices are now a school and the mine club is now a lodge. The town boasts two General Dealer Stores, two butcheries and four pubs!
We bought some bottled water at the local "mall" and saw on the label that the water was bottled locally. We visited the bottling plant and saw that bottled water was supplied to Lodges in the area under their own lables, very kewl indeed!
We spoke to a few of the locals who all love the town and it’s lack of crime. It’s the ideal place to retire with housing still very reasonable.
From Johannesburg take the N1 Pietersburg (Polokwane) highway and take the Warmbaths off-ramp. Go through Warmbaths onto the Koedoeskop/Thabazimbi Road. Take the second Rooiberg turn-off. Turn right and continue for 18kms to the golf course.
