We were welcomed and shown to our lovely room by the owner, and after two days we wished we could stay longer. The staff were very friendly and efficient, and we always felt like Moontide went the extra mile to make us feel welcome and comfortable.

Right on the Wilderness lagoon. Very quiet and peaceful. Nice big rooms and we had our own little stoep. Got their own canoes. Breakfast served on the deck right at the lagoon. Staff are very helpful and friendly. We had a great time and a good rest. Thanks.

Moontide was fabulous. Lovely room, extremely friendly and helpful staff and a really beautiful area. Swimming in river is fantastic and canoeing up to the waterfall was a real highlight. I would definitely recommend it.
