About Rivers Own Guest Lodge

Rivers Own Guest Lodge (sleeps ten guests) in the Mount Bain Reserve is a rare gem waiting to be enjoyed by anyone who makes the short one hour, 20 minute trip from Cape Town to this exquisitely appointed river side getaway.

The river itself is your private part of what is the clearest and cleanest water in the country, flowing directly from the surrounding mountains which carry the invigorating stillness and energy so craved for by those hungry for an enriching time out, or holiday.


There are three bedrooms which are located outside the main house (the buildings are all connected) with their own entrances. These are all double bedrooms, with en-suite bathrooms, two of which only have showers, one with a bath and a shower.

In the main house there is a big lounge, full kitchen and a sunken extra room (which we will furnish with an additional double bed and three singles for extra guests). There is also a full bathroom in the main house, with a bath and shower

The layout is very open plan, you enter the house with the living room area to your left and the kitchen to your right, the sunken kids room directly passed the living room and the extra bathroom beyond the kitchen.

There is a covered outdoor seating area. The pool area is centrally located in front of all the bedroom entrances and the outdoor seating area overlooks the pool too. There is a braai area, pizza oven and rotisserie / spit braai set up, all alongside the pool.


Within 15 minutes you can be wine tasting, kloofing, hiking, trail running, mountain biking and just 30 minutes away you can pick cherries or play in the snow (winter). Even with all these activities so close by, Rivers Own somehow captivates many guests who realise at the end of their stay they had no need to move once they were pulled into the spell of the river and its serene banks that demand all day picnics.

Verified reviewexcellent

Awesome location, house fully equiped with much more than is expected , owners go out of their way to ensure that your stay is one to remember. Crisp white linen on the beds, huge kitchen, lovely lounge area for relaxing late at night having spent the evening sitting outside. Wonderful braai area. Loved the pool and clear river where we spent 90% of our day. Have already booked to go back. AN ABSOLUTE GEM. Words cannot actually explain how beautiful it is here.

Verified reviewvery good

We had a really great time at Rivers Own. What an exceptional setting for the lodge. Mountains, water and greenery, what more can you want on a break from city life. We loved it there, the peace and quiet, waking to the sound of birdsong, the gurgling river and the wind whistling through the trees made for a remarkable three days. It was probably the most relaxing and tranquil time I've had in a very long. None of us missed the TV,laptops were not even opened and phones were used to the minimum. And that in itself says something about the place. Also, the manager(?) Hassan was a great help.Always willing to help with a smile and friendly too.
