      We were lucky in that when we arrived it was still quite clear and the view was spectacular. However that evening it started to rain for two days solid.

      The owner was in touch with me all the way, until I got to the lodge. stuff welcomed us and made us feel at home my kids didn't want to go back home. It was more for the family seeing them running around having fun that was my target. We love Magaliesberg Mountain Lodge.
