The main facilities - the River House includes the "Otters' Den" with the Porcupine Room attached. The Full Moon Bush Cabins, - are quite different in character. All are serviced, with linen supplied, have kitchenettes and cutlery, and are secure at night. The units are all self-catering.
You could hardly find a more private venue on the Vaal, sheltered as we are by a profusion of wild islands and channels filled with fish and bird life. Otters' Haunt is so called because several families of otters live in the nearby pools. The river is home to small mouth and large mouth yellow-fish, carp, mud-fish and many kinds of frogs. There are also caracal (lynx), porcupines, vervet monkeys, and a great variety of veld birds, bushland birds and waterfowl. On arrival, guests are shown the trails, including the wonderful sundeck, and receive information pamphlets about activities and places to visit.
In all the bush camp comprises four cosy thatched dwelling units: two A-frame 2-bed cabins (called Malachite and Pangolin), one A-frame 4 bed cabin (Caracal), and one penthouse-style bedroom-en-suite with annex atop a koppie suitable for couples or four persons (Cormorant). The camp centers on a beautiful rock-pool style swimming pool. A thatched ablution block serves the main camp and has external sink and laundry line. There is an outdoor social lapa with fridge & freezer, hotplate, braai area, cooking and eating utensils. Overlooking the pool is a campfire circle. Our camp manager will tell you all about the area and show you around on the riverbank walking trails.

Guest Comments

The big house is wonderful and spacious, peaceful and has it's own swimming pool. Highly recommend hiring canoes for the time there.
Crockery and Cutlery needs to be looked at, need sharp vegetable knives. There were many chipped wares, there are no pudding bowls. The fridge is very small for the number of people to be catered for.
The other 2 places are very small.
Would definitely like to make this my seasoned holiday place.
Riverman white water rafting was a wonderful experience.


We had an excellent stay, everything was perfect. Will definitely book again.

The peaceful surroundings, friendly people and lovely facilities where your privacy is respected, made my stay a wonderful experience

There was no coffee or tea provided in the room nor was there any soap. It would have been appreciated if we could have been informed that we need to provide our own.

Outstanding hospitality. A lovely place to relax and get away from the busy city live. Close to the city yet peaceful and well-kept grounds make it a place to return to. Would be nice if something could be done about the mosquitoes.
