About Arbour Gardens

Arbour Gardens offers two self-catering country cottages set within 6 hectares of land in Magaliesburg. The property is set on the outskirts of the Cradle of Humankind World Heritage Site and nestled in one of the most scenic sites right on the banks of the Magalies River; this makes it the ideal getaway for couples or families.

Enjoy lying by the river listening to the soothing sound of running water, or get out and about with lots to do in the surrounding area. Swim some lengths in the deep, blue swimming pool, catch a tan on a sunlounger or meditate in the Japanese Garden.

The sleepy little village of Magaliesburg lies in the Witwatersberg and its nearest neighbours are Doornhoek and Hekpoort; it’s an easy hour’s drive from Johannesburg. Magaliesburg serves as a weekend Mecca and tourist destination that offers numerous country restaurants, hiking trails, birdwatching opportunities, rock climbing, hot-air ballooning and mountain biking. Driving through the little towns in and around Magaliesburg is a pleasant afternoon meander.

              We stayed in the lovely river house, which was set amongst the most beautiful tall trees, lovely garden and river. There was a fun sandpit to play in for my boys, and they loved walking around the property and along the river. The house had two big fireplaces, which kept things warm and cost. It was comfortable, clean, and had absolutely everything we needed. We'll definitely recommend it to our friends.

              What a great experience, we stayed in the river house. It's huge, everything is readily available. Natalie is amazing, sweetest lady I've ever met. If you want a peaceful and refreshing stay, I'd definitely recommend arbour gardens.
