About Mamagalie Mountain Lodge

In the heart of the magnificent Magaliesberg mountain range lies Mamagalie Mountain Lodge. Head northwest from Johannesburg and after a one and a half hour's journey our warm welcome awaits you.

On arrival, relax and unwind with a refreshing drink, then take time to enjoy the majestic views over the Buffelspoort Valley and dam while you cool off in the swimming pool. Spend the evenings in peaceful elegance, cuddled up to a cozy log fire, or sit around the fire pit and after cooking your meal, enjoy the star studded skies and listen to the nocturnal inhabitants commence their vigil. Welcome the new day with a stroll through the secluded kloof, and listen to the exquisite sounds of the wakening bush.

We have 1000 acres of private and pristine bush and mountain veld for you to explore at your leisure. An energetic walk to the top of the mountain will give you views you only dream of, and if it is warm enough, take a dip in the pure, sparkling rock pools.

The bush is a nature lover's paradise, with numerous species of flora and fauna. Bird lovers are normally assured of sightings of the Black (Vereaux's) Eagle and Cape Vulture, as well as an abundance of the smaller species.You are certain to enjoy absolute privacy as the lodge is only let to one party at a time. Sleeping from two to twelve people in stylish luxury, our accommodation has been described as 'world class'.

The only things you will need during your stay are food and beverage.

We believe our four star grading is well deserved, but don't let us try and convince you, come and visit us and find out for yourself. Our newly opened Bush Lodge provides the ultimate in privacy; this 4 star unit has a private plunge pool and braai area and is built over three levels into the tree canopy.

The lodge has glass all around letting the sunlight in making it a bright and spacious lodge. The view is beautiful, the Spa bath was a treat but the outside shower was the best.Tranquility is the perfect description for this stay.

This was a stunning location which delived on all promises. We had total privacy, accompanied with beautiful views from all rooms. The Double Spa bath is a must.. will be back to try one of the other lodges.

We loved the absolute silence, except for the birds and the insects. A really relaxing stay which definitely was not long enough. We will certainly be back in the new year for a few days where we can really relax and forget about everything back in the city

My boyfriend and I recently stayed at the Bush lodge, and I must say, it was one of the best weekend getaways I've had.Absolutely private, and beautiful views. Got treated to a spectacular lightning show during a thunderstorm.Romantic, cozy and stress-free.Will definitely be back!

The Mountain lodge is privately situated with the view of the mountains and animals that are in the lodge. The owner Mr Giles made sure that we feel safe and encouraged us to take a walk to the rock pool, and we had great fun and felt refreshed after spending the whole day in the rock pool that is situated high in the mountains.
