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.

Overall great stay, friendly staff, clean neat & tidy. Only downside was that the ablution facilities are quite far from the camping area.Overall great experience!

The camping grounds are very noisy because they are situated close to the main road. The ablutions are quite far from the camp and are not always clean. The photographs on the site do not portray the place accurately. Overall, I was disappointed with the experience despite the property having a lot of potential.

The gardens are beautifully kept and the pools crystal clear. The guided hike was my favorite part, also it was my dogs first mountain hike. Its a 5km hike and takes only an hour. There is a beautiful cliff that rises out of the little dam and a running stream to fill it. I am a little worried about the pig-dog realationship but I'm sure they will get the dog under control. Overall good stay, Cobie, family and staff went out of their way to accommodate us and my dog. The tent setup assistance from Arrie was great too. The night guard that patrolled the grounds was a comforting security feature...
