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.

                      This camp site must be new. The ablution block is very far from the camp site, other campers drove to use the loo. There were no facilities to wash dishes. Dogs did their business anywhere and it was not picked up. Was not very welcoming. If you wanted to go to the restaurant, you had to go find a waiter. Then when you are ready to order, needed to go look for the waiter again. We had to ask for a braai and dustbin. The pool looked dirty and dogs were swimming more than the people were.

                      We enjoyed the hike on the mountains. Its a beautiful place with friendly staff. However, too many dogs that stay on site and its next to a highway. We found it difficult to sleep with the noise from the high way. The toilets and basins seem to have been made for children as they are very low. The showers are split into 2 with one curtain only. You're bound to end up shower with someone you don't know. Restaurant food was quite pricey for the quality. Anyway... Thank you for everything. Maybe just not for us.

                      Beautiful surroundings with the river running through. Good food and friendly staff.

                      The bathrooms are just too far from the camp site.
