Moonriver Mountain Retreat is a highly recommended property for self catering in Vaalwater for tourists visiting the Waterberg region.

About Moonriver Mountain Retreat

Moonriver Mountain Retreat is nestled on the edge of a large secluded valley, in the heart of the Waterberg Biosphere of Limpopo, South Africa and is part of Waterberg Bushveld Retreat. Moonriver Mountain Retreat is a self-catering/self-service establishment, 3 hours drive from Pretoria.

It offers guests spectacular views of the amazing valley and surrounds, as well as interesting walking or strenuous hiking for the fitter visitors! During Summer, there are numerous springs and water streams to explore in different valleys, with abundant wildlife, birds and flowers.

Waterberg Self Catering

Situated in the heart of the Waterberg Plateau, Moonriver Mountain Retreat offers self catering accommodation in three private and spacious chalets as well as a large thatched three bedroom house. The accommodation boasts breathtaking views of the valley. The main lodge has a deck and a swimming pool available for your use.

The Main Lodge with fully equipped Kitchen is open to guests and is the only unit serviced during the week and Saturdays. Please see the individual unit or room descriptions below with photographs, to assist you with your choice.

Please Note

Normal vehicles can drive to the Parking Area of our Establishment and from there you will find a pathway with stairs leading down to the Main Lodge and the small gravel road which is more or less 2 minutes' walk down to the Waterhole and Sunrise Chalets. Should you have a 4x4 vehicle you can drive closer to the Waterhole and Sunrise Chalets along the rocky road.

Verified reviewvery good

Stayed with family in Waterhole cottage . Amazing sunrise from deck . A short drive to plateau to see sunset and game . Really needs built in braai area portable braai very unstable and tiny. Besides the very noisy mice in one rooms thatch roof the beds very comfy and clean . Fixing the little pool on deck would add value to place 3x

The facilities are well kept, exceptionally clean and well maintained. The setting of the facilities are out of this world with the Lapa and swimming pool which is so convenient.
