Western Cape

Situated in the south western corner of South Africa, the Western Cape is one of the country’s most popular locations and destinations. Boasting the exquisite allure of the Winelands, the Karoo and the splendour of the Garden Route, the province also houses Cape Town – the Mother City – a haven for its culturally practised and tasteful residents.


Also known as the Garden province as a result of its coastal sub-tropical climate, KwaZulu-Natal has always been one of South Africa’s favourite holiday destinations. While the coastline is dotted with picturesque small towns, the province’s interior consists mainly of inspiring and spectacular rolling hills.

Eastern Cape

The Eastern Cape includes such diverse landscapes – from the arid Karoo to the wet and windy Grahamstown – that any person can find their nirvana here. This province also boasts South Africa’s only snow skiing resort, which is situated in the Southern Drakensberg.

Free State

With Bloemfontein as its capital city, the Free State is found in the very heart of South Africa. The lovely climate and fertile land have made the province a thriving agricultural community. The Free State’s chief tourist attraction is the Golden Gate Highlands National Park nestled in the foothills of the breathtaking Maluti Mountains.


Meaning literally “the place where the sun rises”, Mpumalanga is divided into scenic highveld and savannah lowveld. Main attractions in the province include the Kruger National Park, the Sudwala Caves and the Blyde River Canyon.


As the northernmost province in South Africa, Limpopo shares its borders with Botswana on the west, Mozambique on the east and Zimbabwe in the north. Limpopo’s proximity to these African countries has gifted it with the beauty and contrasting landscapes that has made it a favourite among travellers and adventure seekers.

North West

The North West province is a picture of authentic African bushveldt beauty that encourages adventure. From the quiet beauty of the Pilansberg Nature Reserve to the bold decadence of Sun City, the North West offers both culture and comfort.

Northern Cape

The Northern Cape is the biggest and most sparsely populated province in South Africa, dominated by the Karoo Basin. This natural gem includes the Kalahari Gemsbok National Park, the Augrabies Falls as well as the famous Namaqualand region.

0% Commission *

MyRoof does not charge any commission to sell your property online. What we mean with no commission is exactly that – no fees are ever payable to us at any stage for the FREE listing option. As we do not charge commission, you can accept a lower offer but still get the same amount of money in your pocket. This will result in more interested buyers in your property.

Unlimited Photos *

You may upload as many photos as you wish onto our website. This will help you in selling your property faster. The more photos, the better idea a buyer gets of your property. Remember that photos can give the buyer a desire to own your property! You can also add the best things your property has to offer on the extra notes section. Buyers enjoy looking at the additional notes to make a decision on whether to view the property or not

Floor plans

All privately owned properties on our website have floor plans in the main centers. Just imagine if you were a buyer and could get an idea of the layout of a property even before visiting the home! Not only will the buyer get an idea of how big the property is, but he or she will also get the chance to view the sizes of the individual rooms and see where they might want to add or remove a wall. The buyer will also have the opportunity to compare the sizes and asking prices of different properties per square meter. Lastly, the floor plan gives the prospective buyer a clear understanding of how the property looks as the arrows on the floor plan show from which angle each photo was taken. The buyer now gets a real feel for the property and can immediately see if this is what they were looking for. This means that only serious buyers will make offers on your property.

Alerts *

On top of the unlimited photos and the added floor plan, we also offer you a large client base where alerts are sent out to buyers who are looking for a property like yours. Alerts are sent to prospective buyers who have indicated that they are interested in property in a specific area at a specific price range.

Roos Transfer and Safaris at Silver Woods Estate

One of my favorite things about this wonderfully diverse and culturally rich nation of ours, is the spectacular natural beauty that god hath had the grace to bestow upon it. It is almost irrelevant which side of the country you travel too, or even what kind of environment you should come across – be it coastal plains, grasslands, in land plateaus, or even just some random bush en route from Pretoria to Polokwane, it is all absolutely gorgeous. That is in part what the beautiful environment and houses in Silver Woods Estate are trying so hard to preserve, albeit while blending it with the modernity so typical of our rapidly developing land – the spectacular natural appeal of the landscape.

One must certainly understand upon reading this article that I have not had the privilege of being raised among such delightful natural splendor, among natural wonders that invoke the soul to peace, understanding and appreciation of the preciousness of life. I grew up in a massive city in the United States, where one must travel extraordinary distances to experience any genuine natural splendor. The closest we often get to natural beauty is the artificially constructed parks and vegetation in the suburbs (to which I rarely ever ventured because there is really nothing to do there except sleep in enormous homes, unlike the countless amenities at Silver Woods. Therefore it is not something that the average Philadelphian would experience.

The entire region is clattered with overdevelopment and consequently saturated with atmospheric and noise pollution, and this often claustrophobic ambience of overpopulation. Even if you were to take the short two-hour trip north to New York, or venture in the opposite direction for an even shorter distance to Baltimore, Maryland; while you certainly catch a glimpse of the charm and lavishness that bewitched the pilgrims and other early settlers, you are also bombarded with concrete, stone, marble, and more artificiality that is difficult to ignore. Thusly, the true beauty of the land the Native American once freely and frequently roamed is lost on the modern eye, veiled by man.

Not quite that way around these parts, is it? There is little question that there are also large portions of the South African countryside that have been tampered with by man’s celestial ambition and entitlement. Yet, there is so much grass, green, to be seen; fauna and flora are awash on the edges of even the largest highways at times and one can really capture what a lovely land this is. I have had the privilege of traversing much of this land by car, giving me the opportunity to view first hand and close up, the natural marvels proliferating the tip of this massive continent. However, it was never not once deliberate, nor planned. Moreover, think carefully about it, residents are hardly ever tourists in their own locale and that is whether or not they have experienced all that their area has to offer.

I am not much different. I have been to one game reserve that I can remember – Kruger National Park. Which else, right? Wrong! There are massive amounts of reserves, parks, tours, etc that allow you to observe intimately, deliberately, the gorgeousness that is this nation, many with the guidance of knowledgeable and experienced experts who enrich the adventure tenfold.

One such an institution is well within your reach, even in the urban setting that you are so fond of and that is Roos Transfer and Safaris.

Check them out. For these are people dedicated to taking you, as best they can, to the beauty of this marvelous nation and seemingly leave little to be desired, as far as adventure is concerned. It is not my intent to frighten you, but with rhino’s being poached habitats being encroached upon by man more and more everyday, you might want to take some time out to observe, actively, the natural wonder, environmental delight that is South Africa.

For those of you that know what’s best, you will want to be as close to such an establishment as possible, and if you live in one of the houses now for sale in Olympus Country Estate, the beauty of this nation – or at least the service that will transport you to such, will be only minutes away from your door.
