Welcome to River Rock, our guesthouse located in Parys, Free State.

Our self-catering guesthouse is situated on the banks of the Vaal River with the most beautiful natural ambience while still maintaining a countryside atmosphere.

Countless bird species is a must for bird watchers. Horses roam the property all day and the distant cry of a fish eagle ends another perfect day.

Great for angling, entertaining or relaxing!


If you need a time out from the busy city or have a special romantic getaway in mind, we have the perfect spot for you!

Parys is a convenient getaway from the city as it is only a 45 min drive from Johannesburg. Our beautiful town offers two golf estates; one of our country’s biggest indoor arenas at the Dome, popular for horse shows and festivals. An array of sports activities; unbelievable dining and shopping galore at our famous art and antique shops; heritage and monumental sightseeing is a must!

Whether you are here to unwind for a few days, compete in activities or for business, we always strive to exceed your expectations.


We look forward to welcoming you!
