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.

Dine at Ma Cuisine at Mimosa Lodge

September 18, 2017

 

Follow the road through a short tunnel in the rock and you’ll find yourself in the historic little town of Montagu – not technically part of the Robertson Wine Valley, but close enough and quaint enough to warrant a visit. Mimosa Lodge has been around since 1985, and for the past 13 years Bernard and Fida Hess have built up a reputation for tasty old-style, bistro food. Think scallops with home-made sweet chilli sauce, perfectly seared steak, or ostrich fillet with pommes fondant and muscat-and-thyme jus. Tuck into a three-course menu for R320 (R620 with wine pairing). Mimosa also produces its own wines, which you’ll soon be able to taste at a dedicated tasting facility with an attached day-time restaurant.
