About Mamagalie Mountain Lodge

In the heart of the magnificent Magaliesberg mountain range lies Mamagalie Mountain Lodge. Head northwest from Johannesburg and after a one and a half hour's journey our warm welcome awaits you.

On arrival, relax and unwind with a refreshing drink, then take time to enjoy the majestic views over the Buffelspoort Valley and dam while you cool off in the swimming pool. Spend the evenings in peaceful elegance, cuddled up to a cozy log fire, or sit around the fire pit and after cooking your meal, enjoy the star studded skies and listen to the nocturnal inhabitants commence their vigil. Welcome the new day with a stroll through the secluded kloof, and listen to the exquisite sounds of the wakening bush.

We have 1000 acres of private and pristine bush and mountain veld for you to explore at your leisure. An energetic walk to the top of the mountain will give you views you only dream of, and if it is warm enough, take a dip in the pure, sparkling rock pools.

The bush is a nature lover's paradise, with numerous species of flora and fauna. Bird lovers are normally assured of sightings of the Black (Vereaux's) Eagle and Cape Vulture, as well as an abundance of the smaller species.You are certain to enjoy absolute privacy as the lodge is only let to one party at a time.

                          We stayed in the Bush Lodge. The first time we stayed at Mamagalie, we stayed in Forest Lodge and this time we tried Bush Lodge. Both times it was fantastic! The views from all areas of the lodge over the bush and Buffelspoort Dam are incredible. We parked our car at the start of the weekend and didn't get back into it until we left at the end of the weekend. The perfect break. If you are looking for total relaxation, this is the place. The splash pool is big enough for a couple, the braai area is perfectly situated and if you are energetic there is a 5km hike up the mountain to natural spring...

                          We stayed at the Tranquillity Lodge at Mamagalie, and it was awesome! Each lodge is completely out of sight and private from the eachother, which is great for privacy. The farm is extremely quiet and relaxing. Staying in the trees for a few days and only seeing monkeys and hornbills was just what the doctor ordered!

                          The setting which lived up to lodge name...absolute peace and quiet, and the walk up to the rock pools.Attention to detail in the unit was also noted and the cleanliness and general appearance of the place. Whilst there were some small issues with the outside shower and jacuzzi, Melanie was there to sort this out promptly. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay and will definitely be back!

                          It is clear that the owners care about their clients both in terms of the place they built and their responsiveness whenever you needed anything. Highly recommend it.
