Moonriver is perfectly situated on the banks of the Bitou River, offering a relaxing environment in which birding and kayaking can be enjoyed. While only 10 minutes away from the many attractions of Plettenberg Bay, our private river frontage has a very rural appeal.
The Flat has two bedrooms, one with a double bed, the other has twin beds that can be converted to a king size bed on request. The sleeper couch in the lounge is available for small children, or one bigger child. There is a small kitchen with everything that a guest would need, plus a 2 plate stove.
The patio, which has a wonderful view, has outside furniture, and a braai area. It enjoys privacy and has a sunny aspect, as the sun sets along the river. The evenings are often spectacular, with the reflections of the sunset on the water.
Moonriver is hugely popular with twitchers, as there are many migratory and endemic species to be seen. Guests can walk along the rivers` edge to the end of the property. They might be lucky enough to spot the elusive Cape Clawless otter—there is plenty of evidence of them!
The river is lovely to swim in, provided one doesn’t mind a bit of mud between the toes! One can paddle quite far up-and down-river on the kayak.
We have a boat with a small engine. If a guest is in the possession of a skipper’s license, it may be used, at high tide only! The river can get very shallow.
The attractions of Crags, such as the wine farms and animal and sanctuaries, are within easy reach as is Keurbooms beach. Plett game reserve is 20 minutes up the R340, and it is well worth a visit. Well priced game drives take you to see abundant wildlife.
Moonriver is a relaxed mini river resort, and a great place in which to relax and unwind.
