Moonriver Mountain Retreat offers guests accommodation with spectacular views of the amazing valley and surrounds.

Waterberg Bushveld Retreat is a private game farm in the heart of the Waterberg Biosphere where we combine game breeding with tourism.

Game Breeding

Our aim is to breed top quality, extremely healthy animals, which should be excellent representations of their species.


Nestled in the Waterberg Biosphere and overlooking an amazing valley with breath taking views


Waterberg Bushveld Retreat & Moonriver Mountain Retreat is exactly a place where you can go to be alone, to get away from it all. A safe place of privacy. A place affording peace and quiet. It is remote and serene. It’s nature, wildness and wildlife will leave an indelible imprint on any visitor who loves nature. The nature and scope of this imprint will vary with the responsiveness of each person to being exposed to such natural beauty and diversity of Fauna & Flora. It has an aura of mystery, ambience and contrast. It is also a safe haven for many plant and animal species of which some are endemic to the Waterberg, others red listed and even a newly discovered plant species in the Waterberg.

Waterberg Bushveld Retreat as a Company was established in 2006 by Jacques Wintermans and Pieter Krijne, together with Stephan Visser who is also the breeder and manager at Waterberg Bushveld Retreat. In 2014 Jacques handed over his involvement to his son Adriaan Wintermans, who is since then managing the affairs on behalf of the Wintermans family. We combine game breeding with tourism, of which Zona Visser is handling the tourism side, at Moonriver Mountain Retreat. Stephan was involved in game breeding since 2000, when he started to make use of passive capture systems for all kinds of different game species.
