About Hornbill Lodge

Hornbill Lodge and Legends, Magaliesburg Hornbill Lodge offers luxury accommodation in the Riverine Forest on the banks of the Magalies River, in Magaliesburg, South Africa. An ideal location for those needing to be close to the cities of Johannesburg and Pretoria or the “Lost City”, but away from the crowds. The architect-designed Guest Lodge offers superb accommodation in peaceful surroundings - the luxury of the city and the best of the country.

The Magalies River flows strongly all year round attracting a large variety of birds, butterflies and river creatures. The resident Leguaan takes a sun bathe on the rocks in the river. Activities include bird-watching, swimming, walking along, or just relaxing on the river banks. Golf driving range, horse-riding, tennis, squash, hot air ballooning all nearby.

We offer a kiddies pool and a large swimming pool, our rolling lawns meet the river front in perfect harmony. For the keen fisherman we offer catch and release facilities, most of the fish are Trophy size. The lodge consists of six rooms and a lounge. All units are fully air-conditioned and luxuriously furnished. There are approximately 180 different bird species, and some smaller game. We cater for leisure guests, weddings, small conferences, birthday parties and another reason you have to celebrate.

                                      The lodge is in a good area only if it had better accommodation, eating area, lounge and no dogs roaming in the lounge and eating area. The decor seem to have been done by auntie Hettie in the 60s the chef and dining room service was a disgrace. owners need to rise to the occasionthe place is in Gauteng serving people from Sandton (like Myself) and maybe or hopefully tourists from other countries.

                                      We had a wonderful stay at Hornbill Lodge. Cobie and Sam went out of their way to serve us and make our stay as pleasant as possible. Grounds are beautiful, the food was excellent and log fires burning throughout the day in the lounge areas added to the atmosphere. Close to most activities in the Magaliesburg. We will definitely stay again!

                                      We had a fantastic and peacefull rest during our stay at Hornbill. Cobie and his staff are SUPER and they know just how to treat people. The food was of a very high standard. The room has a very nice view on the mountain, it is clean. Overall rating out of 10, is 10.Thanks a again for a pleasant and restfull few days.

                                      My stay was a substandard experience. Hornbill Lodge was a far from luxurious experience and offers far less than what it's website advertises.

                                      The stay at Hornbill Lodge and Legends was truly an exceptional and much needed time away. The Owner of the Lodge (Cobie) knows just how to add that special personal and romantic touch to a couples stay. The rooms are immaculately kept and there is ample supply of wonderful hot water. The staff were all very neatly presented and very accommodating and helpful. The food was awesome!!!! In closing we thoroughly enjoyed our trip and will recommend a visit at Hornbill to all!!!
