The Elements is a rustic house set in the Magaliesberg Mountains on an established small-holding that has been drawing power from the natural elements for around 10 years. The house is basic but ideal for an escape from the city. The house has one bedroom with a double bed and an en-suite bathroom. An additional single bed can be added on request. There is a basic kitchen area and outdoor seating with views for miles.

Sunshine rules the energy on this exclusive retreat, it pumps the borehole water, lights the light bulbs and cools the fridges. When the sun is resting and the clouds roll in, the wind turbine takes over her easy load and the same efficiency is achieved. The beautiful power of our natural elements are your hosts, so come and absorb their energy. Relax, take a walk in the mountains or cycle many of the spectacular bike trail in this pristine environment.

The beautiful surroundings of the house are perfect for guests who want to get lost in nature. The Magaliesberg Mountains are rich with hiking trails, gullies and kloofs and are a playground for hikers, rock climbers and abseilers.

Magaliesburg South Africa

Magaliesburg Self-catering Accommodation

The Magaliesberg is a beautiful low range of hills not far from the city of Johannesburg and close to the town of Magaliesburg. Note the spelling. Magaliesburg is the town, Magaliesberg is the range. But, hey, what’s in a name? Magaliesberg is a fun little centre with a very countrified feel to it and loads of bucolic pleasures. Pick up a copy of the Magalies Meander map. It’s a snazzy little marketing initiative that has linked together loads of fun products such as guest houses, museums, craft shops, restaurants and attractions as varied as South Africa’s first gold mine, a hot air balloon trip, spas and wellness centres, and a cheese factory. It’s also really close to the fascinating Cradle of Humankind.

Now the Magaliesberg is even more inviting. Although not very high, it’s a beautiful range with lovely flora, some small game and loads of beautiful streams, pools and waterfalls. It’s a real escape from the frenetic urban conurbations of Pretoria and Johannesburg, and it’s hard to believe it’s so close. The hiking is legendary, there are some fun kloofing trips and some good climbing, too. There are horse trails in the area and South Africa’s largest gliding club is situated nearby.
