I'd recommend anyone that wants a restful weekend away to head for Magaliesburg. It's just plain beautiful.

Quiet - Not a huge amount to do with small children although there are a few restaurants and cafes with playgrounds. Nice to go to escape from Joburg.

Picture perfect mountains - Quiet and serene... perfect for a weekend getaway out of town as the drive is really not that far and lots to see and do in the area!
