The thatched main area has an informal bar and restaurant with rustic furniture features such as bar stools made from animal skin-covered tree trunks and chairs with kudu horn armrests. Artwork from local artists adorns the walls. Meals can be buffet or ordered from 'a la carte' menus. Cuisine is largely 'boere kos' translated as Afrikaans farm style home cooking. Whist dining, guests can enjoy the excellent view of the camp's waterhole where warthog, eland and other antelope species are common visitors. Evenings can be spent around the campfire on overturned drums forming stools.

Roy's Rest Camp also features a cooling swimming pool with lounge deck and curio shop selling locally made arts and crafts. An internet facility and communal safe are also available.
