More info about Mooi River
People arrive for the clean country air, since Mooi River is almost 1400m above sea level. Established in 1921, the attractive town of Mooi River (pretty river) has the national highway between Johannesburg and Durban running down its middle. It’s the gateway to the central Drakensberg (Dragon Mountains) and from here the Giant’s Castle Nature Reserve is reached.
Mooi River is farming country, some of South Africa's top stud farms are located here. It was once the scene of skirmishes during the South African War and where the British located their military hospital in the hope that the fresh air would hasten recovery.
Mooi River is part of the Midlands Meander, an established and popular arts and crafts route. The town’s elevated position has panoramic views of the surrounding valleys, the days are warm to hot in summer and snow sometimes falls during winter.
It’s relaxed country living surrounded by pastures, ravines and indigenous forest... Show more
Guests escape the noise and bustle of lodges by opting to stay in either fully self-catering or bed and breakfast cottages. Self-catering cottages are a home away from home and come fully equipped with everything guests need. Most self catering cottages also come with a cleaning service, Dstv, and a private patio/entertainment area. Guests who opt for bed and breakfast cottages enjoy their own private patio/entertainment area, luxury amenities, Dstv, and cleaning service. There is often a small kitchenette, if guests wish to do a little cooking, and a relaxing lounge area. Cottages are ideal for families, small groups of friends and couples wishing for a more private retreat.
