Known as "The gateway to The Midlands Meander", Mooi River holds its share of craft outlets, cottage industries and excellent Natal midlands accommodation and country hospitality. Visitors to Mooi River Midlands area are welcome to patronise The Mooi River Country Club set on a challenging golf course and offering bowls, tennis and squash as well as good country fare from its bar and restaurant facilities.

The Mooi River golf course overlooks the polo field where polo players can often be seen practising their skills or taking part in one of the many Midlands Polo tournaments which Mooi River hosts.

"Mooi" is an Afrikaans word, meaning beautiful. The Voortrekkers who settled this area in 1830 were so taken by the river and its surrounding scenery that they named it Mooi River. With the backdrop of the often snow capped Drakensberg Mountain range, the Mooi River winds through the breathtakingly beautiful landscape of the Natal Midlands with its rolling hills and lush green vegetation.

Mooi River town is situated on the banks of the river and serves a thriving agricultural Natal Midlands community. Mooi River livestock farming is prevalent and the sight of magnificent racehorses grazing in manicured paddocks is not uncommon.

Mooi River accommodation opportunities are plentiful, and due to the amount of horse breeding and polo ponies in the area, Mooi River self catering accommodation and Mooi River Guest Lodges are often situated on "horse territory"

Mooi River accommodation would be an added advantage for guests who intend touring the Midlands Meander Route and who prefer to use their Mooi River accommodation as a base camp. Mooi River is situated between Johannesburg and Durban and provides the ideal Mooi River bed and breakfast accommodation stopover for those who wish to interrupt the 6-hour journey. Larger families would find it more cost effective to search for self catering accommodation in the Mooi River area.
