River Cruising and Rafting

The Breede River is the lifeline of the area and there is plenty to do on and around the river.  You can choose between 3 different boat cruises.

The Kolgans River Restaurant cruises slowly down the Breede River whilst you enjoy authentic Afrikaans cuisine.  The Kolgans runs two or three trips daily (breakfast, lunch and the popular evening “booze cruise”). Times vary according to the season and special times may be arranged in advance.

Viljoensdrifts Uncle Ben an hour-long meander along the river, flanked by indigenous Breede River Yellowwood and Wild Olive trees teeming with a variety of bird species, sets the scene for a leisurely riverside experience.  Fill your picnic basket to the brim with sumptuous fare from our deli, add a bottle or two of Viljoensdrift’s fine wines and enjoy your picnic during your trip down the river.

The Breede River Goose operates seven days a week depending on weather and river conditions, trips must be booked in advance as we are not on a tourist route. 

The Goose can take up to 26 adults at any one time, in summer we do stop for swimming in the river. We also carry fishing rods for those interested or they may bring their own. We do not supply drinks or eats, customers should bring their own. We do however do braais on the banks of the river for groups of 10 or more where we supply everything but drinks.

If you want to be more hands-on, join one of the Rafting Route 62 trips paddling down the river, something the whole family can do together.

Water Saving Measuers at Minmosa Lodge

February 16, 2018

Taking a two-minute shower, flushing only when necessary, and reusing towels and linen may be an inconvenience, especially when travelling, but the alternative of no water at all is something that the Western Cape community is working very hard at to avoid. While Montagu has not been as hard-hit by the drought as the city of Cape Town, the Route 62 town also has water restrictions and residents and travellers alike have been called upon to make all necessary efforts in order to preserve this precious commodity.

“We have implemented a number of water-saving measures at Mimosa Lodge to ensure that our guests still enjoy their holiday while being water-wise at the same time,” says Fida Hess, proprietor of Mimosa Lodge in Montagu.
