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....

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...

The people there are always on hand to help. They provide various activities in and out doors, with their beautiful setting, luxurious restaurant, waterskiing, tubing, fishing and their kids room which include ping pong, foozeball, playstation and much more.

A beautiful place, but I found the service from staff very average. The staff enjoyed sitting on the couch in the lounge area that was meant for guests. My husband was watching the rugby, but left because the staff were talking so loudly and didn't feel very welcome there. We went on Geralds trail hike because all the water sports...

I attended a wedding here and was shocked to the false advertising and service.
