Mofam River Lodge

I was treated to a day and night stay at  Mofam River Lodge situated on the banks of the slow flowing Palmiet River in the Elgin Valley as a Birthday gift from my friend. We had lots of fun quad biking, Labyrinth walking, hiking, drinking wine, eating good food and best of all laughing till our tummies hurt. I consider myself very blessed to have such a special friend.

DSCN7408As it only takes about an hour and a bit from home we arrived early on Saturday morning and were lucky to have really great weather considering all the rain we have had the past week. Really a beautiful place for a weekend or mid-week escape from the hustle and bustle of city life.         Mofam River Lodge DSCN7390 ??????????

Time to walk off the food and bubblies. We did a short walk along the river for about an hour.

So we had our breakfast and took a slow drive back to Cape Town.  You can see by the river and trees how the wind was howling. But we did have a great Saturday filled with fun, so not at all worried about the change in weather.
