As part of your stay, guests are able to indulge in a wide variety of activities in and around the property. We had geared up for this in great anticipation and it certainly did not disappoint. After a very warm welcome and tour of our room, we were ready for the much loved Fynbos quad bike trip around the farm. Our guide was kind and courteous and made sure that all Covid-19 safety checks were in place. With our helmets on, we were ready to rock and roll. The beauty surrounding you certainly adds to the magic this activity promises. We were able to rough it out through different terrains and parts of the farm. An abundance of bird life and natural flora and fauna surrounds you - a more perfect slice of heaven could not be found. Our guide was absolutely incredible and showcased his in-depth knowledge of the natural surroundings. Our trip ended with a much needed cool down refreshment with one of the best views we have ever had the pleasure of seeing.
Our second activity was none other than a serene morning kayak! An absolute must do, the sights, sounds and surrounds amaze you with every paddle. The peace and quiet is certainly a welcome break from the hustle and bustle of the city. On your kayak you will find, “calm waters, beautiful sunsets, and mountain ranges” a killer combo to start your day! If you're keen to get stuck into some epic activities, Mosaic Lagoon Lodge offers the following experiences for their guests:
If you’re ready to dine like royalty, Mosaic Lagoon Lodge certainly does not disappoint. Whether you dine indoor or outdoor, the scenery is the perfect addition to an already impressive meal.

With the warm roar of the fire only a stone’s throw away, the cold winter’s evening was soon forgotten. With the bar set high for breakfast, it certainly did not disappoint! What a fabulous foodie experience.
