                  Loved the setting the friendly staff loved everything -only thing was the plunge pool belonging to the chalet was not in use and this was a huge disappointment. If there are issues we should have been informed.Establishments response:Thank you for the nice review, it is much appreciated. According to the guest review, plunge pools are not in use. Just to get any misunderstanding out of the way. There is a very nice pool at the main lodge for all the guest to use and it is advertised as such, both on our own web site as well as the Safari Now web site. Since 2016 when we took over Moonriver,...

                  We had the most amazing weekend at Moonriver. The establishment was awesome and the views breathtaking. Enjoyed our hike and evenings spent out on the deck. Very peaceful and the star gazing was superb.

                  Thank you for a great stay at Moonriver. We had such a relaxing stay and got a chance to recharge from the city life. The views from the Chalet was gorgeous and the fireplace inside great. We would definitely recommend a stay here for anyone that wants to escape a bit- although some of the chalets are not far away from you, you do get a feeling of secludedness. some improvements that would make the stay even more great would be a better kitchen set-up. The kitchen has all it needs, but the sink is a little too small to wash dishes in and no microwave. Also the braai, was sufficient for two...

                  We had a fantastic stay at Moonriver. The location is perfect and extremely peaceful / relaxing and the chalet was lovely and well equipped. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful. Vaalwater is not far away if you need anything and you can take different routes on the Waterberg meander to explore the area. We Would definitely stay here again. Many thanks Moonriver.
