In 2009 we were graded by the Tourism Grady Council of South Africa for the first time. We were delighted to be awarded 4 stars. The 4 stars mean that we are considered ‘Excellent’. Currently, there are only five 5-stars or ‘Exceptional’ camping/caravan resorts in South Africa and we are certainly striving to be accredited into that elite category! In 2010 we were re-awarded our 4 stars. In 2011 the Grading Council decided to restructure the way they grade resorts and unfortunately no grading happened during the year. Mountain Splendour is also an AA Quality assured Resort.
There have been numerous changes in the manner in which resorts are graded and in 2015 Mountain Splendour (along with many other resorts) opted out of the grading process. Once the revised grading process has established itself the resort has every intention of rejoining the star programme.
Once upon a time in 1994, Ponta do Ouro Reservations was founded by the owners of Motel do Mar Beach Resort, who restored the facility after the Mozambican civil war. The company grew to include an increasing number of establishments in Southern Mozambique as the area expanded into the exciting destination that it is today.
With our clientele being largely from South Africa, we recognised a need for En Route accommodation as well as an interest in combining the beach and bush experiences into one trip. Thus, En Route Travel was born, and we are very excited to tailor-make your next holiday to this breath-taking part of the world. Our belief is that travel is not merely a destination, but rather that the journey En Route often creates the most wonderful memories. We can make up an exciting itinerary with or without Mozambique in it, and largely focus on the spectacular Northern Kwa-Zulu Natal area. Whether your interest lies in game-viewing, bird-watching, fishing, scuba-diving or simply a bit of rest and relaxation we certainly have a place for you to visit.
If the destination you are looking for is not currently listed, please let us know as we will surely expand our area or portfolio to include it. Thank you for reading our story, and we look forward to filling your travels with unforgettable experiences. Take it slow and… Explore every Journey.
