The setting for this lodge is amazing, right on the river. The restaurant food surprised on the upside, and the bar on the water is brilliant for sundowners. The staff was friendly and even helped with some early breakfast for the cyclists. Quite cold at night, you need something warm and some peaceful sleep for outside at night.

We weren't even staying at Mofam, but were paddling up the river and we clearly looked like we needed a rest. The manager came down to the water and offered for us to come up and have lunch and a drink. We were staying at Elgin Hills just up the river, which is TERRIBLE!!! We were so happy to stop...

The setting for this lodge is amazing, right on the river. The restaurant food surprised on the upside (hearty family fare), and the bar on the water is brilliant for sundowners. However, I feel that this lodge is lacking some upkeep and was a bit tired to be honest. There were cobwebs everywhere on the walkways, which could easily be...

A breathtaking view and scenery, with on site accommodation and everything you need to plan and pull off that special wedding day. (Plus the bass fishing is good) We had a little trouble with the kitchen on the big day and found some of the pepper shakers to have cinnamon in (which completely ruined the food) But as a whole...

The Mofam river lodge has a lovely setting. We really enjoyed our weekend away. Most of the day was spent on the waters edge enjoying some snacks and a drink. The rooms were clean and slept 5 of us. The staff were very accommodating in allowing us to sleep our young child in the room with us as it was...

Neat rooms. Lovely restaurant. Highlight was the games room. Board games, books,table tennis, pool table etc. Took a boat trip-tiny electric motor-but good for just relaxing on the calm water. Will take our fishing rods next time!

We went to a wedding at Mofam on the 3rd of December. A big WOW! Vince met us like long lost family and quickly showed us to our cottage. We where amazed at how well the staff maintained the crowd that arrived. They dealt with our numeous question with friendliness and always a smile. Tandeka was always there to fill...

What a stunning place. The staff are friendly and helpful. The manageress walked around on site and checked that everything was in order. Dinner was good value for money, beautifully presented and tasty. Breakfast was the usual hotel breakfast buffet but all tasted really good. The coffee was a let down and the fruit juice tasted like concentrate not fresh....

Dear Bernice, Thank you so much for taking the time to write this wonderful review. I am sad to hear about your bad coffee experience. We try to use South African brands, and they do sometimes have a high dose of Chicory in. I will try and test some other brands, perhaps we get to a nice middle ground. Thank...
