A perfect getaway with a very personal touch. In the middle of nature: cranes, herons and fish eagles can be spotted from the lodge and we got easily used to ihe "oohooh" of the owls at night. Exquisite dinners in front of the fireplace and great service. Our guide Vitalis took us out on nature walks, a tour on quads,... More

We have only great things to say about the Mosaic Lagoon Lodge. There are just 5 lodges and they are well spaced so that you get a great feeling of privacy, when you want it. The views from each lodge are splendid. The lodges themselves are kitted out with every imaginable convenience and the outdoor shower is a special touch.... More

The trip to the nearby Walkerbay beach is magical and the sunsets are dreamlike. The Southern... More

Mosaic has a lovely feeling of remoteness without actually being very remote and you can watched flamingoes your bed as they pick their way across the lagoon. The rooms are average size but very beautiful and comfortable - at night you can lie in bed and watch the stars. The service is incredibly thoughtful. Every time you get back from... More

Mosaic private Sanctuary is very beautifully run with an eye for detail in every way. Simone and Marcelino have cornered a very special market but having run game reserves the service here is run on those lines. The food was delicious, the staff attentive. With a small spa facility on site too we wanted for nothing.
