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.

                          We were camping. It is noisy at night with the truck noise bouncing off the opposite mountain. No doubt. But.. friendly people and resident dogs, great food, great location, great hike, great pool all made up for it and more.

                          What a magical place, the people are so friendly and welcoming. The restaurants food is amazing and so reasonably priced. The rooms are big and spacious and the setting is truly beautiful

                          we enjoyed the quietness of the place,excellent staff members and their UBUNTU. As for the directions, i suggest that a clear visible sign post from the main road should be installed, to avoid getting lost and the inconvenience cost having to ask the host to come fetch us from Magaliesburg. Secondly a small bar fridge in the room for cold water especially when its hot is very much ideal.

                          Will not stay there again. Although it is beautiful there, the camping site is situated right next to the road. You hear cars and trucks and hooters all day and night. There is also no ablution for campers. You have to use the restaurant’s toilets, showers are situated there.

                          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!
