Small social pets can be accommodated by arrangement.

Our self-catering accommodation is situated 12 kilometers past Magaliesburg on top of the rolling hills; our entrance is on the main route towards Koster. We are easily accessible from the main road so you do not need an off-road vehicle. We are close to all amenities in Magaliesburg.

Our chalets are private and surrounded by forest and stunning gardens, tranquil water features, and personal space, champagne hamper available on request. We have romantic cottages for couples, or family and group-sized chalets with king-size or queen-size beds, bunk beds and sleeper couches. There are log fireplaces in the bedrooms of Hornbill and Ibis, and larger log fireplaces in the lounges of Kingfisher and Lourie; Ibis features a private outdoor bath on deck.

Leisurely horse-riding out rides are available, as is quad biking. If you're the adventurous type, take a drive and experience a canopy tour (we are happy to arrange it for you with the venue at a discounted rate). The mountain sanctuary park/rock pools are next to the canopy tours in the mountains. The Magaliesberg and Cradle of Humankind has something for everyone, from the adventurous, to the laid back.

Woodland Gardens is a retreat with a very special energy that supports anyone needing some time out and a place to de-stress and get back on track with their dreams and goals. Here, you'll find a place where you are left in peace to work on yourself, with support if needed.
