River Sanctuary

Sleeps 5

Like something out of a fairy tale, River Sanctuary is tucked away into a small forest clearing beside a crystal mountain stream.  There are two bedrooms; the main bedroom with a double bed and a second bedroom with a bunk bed, suitable for children. There is a single bed in a lounge nook that doubles as a sunny reading spot.

There’s a well-equipped, open-plan kitchen, a cosy lounge with tub armchairs and crackling fireplace and a dining area. The retro black-and-white bathroom is complete with vintage claw-foot bath.  The open-air shower next to the river is a delight for honeymooners and nature lovers alike! It is completely private - only the vervet monkeys will be able to see you.

A charming, intimate undercover seating area with outdoor braai looks out into the secluded lush forest where the sounds of the dancing stream and birdsong fill the air. Another seating area is set on the rolling lawns.

At Beyond the Moon, you’re spoilt for choice … with something for everyone.

Surrounded by indigenous forest

Set in a clearing, surrounded by indigenous forest and with a river running through it, Beyond the Moon is a paradise for families, nature lovers and bird watchers. The natural forests are alive with birdsong and Knysna Loeries/Turacos and fireflies abound. There’s loads of space to run, hike and ride …

A working farm

Beyond the Moon shares its space with a working farm with sheep and miniature horses. Little ones are welcome to bring their favourite treats like carrots and apples to feed them.

Surrounding by majestic mountains

The surrounding mountains and forests are ideal for hikers of varying levels of fitness and experience.  A 40–minute hike on one of our private hiking trails takes you to a beautiful waterfall in the mountains with crystal cool water, fresh from the ancient Outeniquas.
