Glen Ormond is an exclusive guest house in the KwaZulu-Natal Midlands situated on a picturesque and serene 6 hectare property, elevated above the Mpofana (Mooi) River between Rosetta and Mooi River.

Abundant wildlife species move freely through the properties in the region, so be on the lookout for buck, mongoose, gennet, porcupines, jackal and otters. The birdlife is prolific with frequent visits from the Brown Eagle, Hammerkop, Long Crested Eagle, Gymnogenes, Natal Robins and Hoopoe to mention but a few. The chattering Red Billed Hoopoe is a frequent visitor and the Grey Crowned Crane nest in the trees at the bottom of the property.

Self-catering accommodation or bed and breakfast, this 6 hectare property perched above the beautiful Mpofana river has much to offer the discerning traveler.

The owners of Glen Ormond are purveyors of fine finishes. The decor is elegant yet homely and meals are prepared with the focus on wholesomeness and good taste, sourcing ingredients as much as possible from local markets. We cater for vegetarians and vegans and banting dieters.

Area Information:

Mooi River is 160km from Durban and 64km from Pietermaritzburg.

Mooi River is a farming and textile centre which was originally named Lawrenceville after the Irish farmer who formalised its settlement during the 1800s. Mooi River took its name from the Voortrekker description of its river - "mooi" '(translates as pretty). In Zulu, however, the river is Mpofana, meaning "Place of the Eland". Some parts of the Mooi river offer excellent boating facilities. The upper reaches are ideal for fly-fishing. Further upstream, the Mooi River Falls are a marvellous site when the river is in flood.

Outside the town, the Craigieburn Dam has camping sites and picnic spots. Popular outdoor activities include trout fishing, which can be done in the rivers in the district. The Mooi River Falls are located 25km from the town. Watersport such as boating, canoeing, tubing can be done on the Mooi River.

Mooi River forms part of the popular Midlands Meander self-drive arts and crafts route. Prior arrangements can be made to visit one of the many prestigious racehorse studs and training establishments in the vicinity (The king of the local stud farms is Summerhill which attracts clients from around the world and has won numerous awards. Visits take around an hour).

Visit the Weston Agricultural College Museum which houses British military artifacts or the Rhode House Museum, which presents a variety of local historical exhibits depicting formative activities of the area such as polo and dairy farming.
