Our friendly and dynamic team extends a warm welcome. We are an enthusiastic bunch from various ethnic backgrounds who have found a home and workplace on the farm. Here we have joyfully created a natural sanctuary where visitors can relax in a healthy and eco-sensitive environment, while appreciating the attractive wilderness setting. At Moonraker, we strive to tread gently on the earth and to establish a wholesome and respectful relationship with our natural surroundings, which we are delighted to share with you. Come and join in the fun.

The gardener with many hidden talents. Dirk has spent many an hour creating and growing Moonrakers Garden and its soul. He is not employed here but deeply engrained in all our hearts and can therefore no longer really escape us. Also, musically Dirk has left his mark on the Moonraker DNA...

The animals are Ruan's passion, even if he knows the garden excellently and always lends a hand, his heart beats for all the little creatures that inhabit this farm and give him their charm. With his gentle and humorous nature, he happily maneuvers our four-legged and feathered friends around the farm.
Almut is the good soul on the phone. Patiently and with much friendliness she answers emails and calls from our guests. She ensures with thoroughness that the bookings are entered and correctly noted. But not only in front of the PC and on the phone she supports Moonraker, she is also always ready to help when the trouble catches up with us.
Ulli – is a sunshine of a woman. Helpful and humorous, she is a pleasure to be around. And she always enjoys sharing a choice philosophical idea.
Whether it's bathrooms or fish pond repairs, Penda wanders from site to site with his mixer and wheelbarrow, always creating soulful buildings or working patches from simple materials. The lovingly packed natural stone walls in the backyard are just one of his works of art.
Bernhard - grew up in these mountains and is a fount of knowledge about each and every creature and plant that lives here. He sees the enormous potential of nature to bring out the better parts in all of us.
