Magaliesburg Town of Magalies Meander

Beautiful - Magaliesburg is still somewhere that I love to go. It's so close to home, yet you feel like you're in the wilderness somewhere far away. The sights are beautiful, the peace when you in the remote areas is heaven. Watching a hot air balloon go up at sunrise is really a majestic sight. I'd recommend anyone that wants a restful weekend away to head for Magaliesburg. It's just plain beautiful.
