Moonriver Mountain Retreat
Moonriver Mountain Retreat is nestled on the edge of a large secluded valley, in the heart of the Waterberg Biosphere of Limpopo, South Africa and is part of Waterberg Bushveld Retreat, which is open to the public.

Moonriver Mountain Retreat is a self-catering/self-service establishment, 3 hours drive from Pretoria. It offers guests spectacular views of the amazing valley and surrounds, as well as interesting walking or strenuous hiking for the fitter visitors. During Summer there are numerous springs and water streams to explore in different valleys, with abundant wildlife, birds and flowers.

Waterberg Bushveld Retreat was established in 2006 by Jacques Wintermans and Pieter Krijne, together with Stephan Visser who is also the breeder and manager at Waterberg Bushveld Retreat. In 2014 Jacques handed over his involvement to his son Adriaan Wintermans, who is since then managing the affairs on behalf of the Wintermans family. We combine game breeding with tourism, of which Zona Visser is handling the tourism side, at Moonriver Mountain Retreat. Stephan was involved in game breeding since 2000, when he started to make use of passive capture systems for kinds of different game species.
