We've camped twice at MSP and absolutely love it. The camp sites are clean and efficiently maintained, the ablution blocks are tidy and nicer than many I've seen, and the pool is an absolute dream. An oasis in the heat and dust. The pool bar...More

Make time to research the options for accomodation. We took the camping option and it will be easy for some to give a bad review if not prepaired. The camp site was neat and very well maintained. The hiking trails were excellent with the most...More

Not far from Johannesburg, lies Magaliesburg. Most people get stuck at Hartebeespoort dam, but if you venture a little further (say 60kms) you reach an oasis that's ready to welcome you to nature at its best! We came here for a birthday hike - two...More

If you haven't seen Mountain Sactuary Park and hiked this area, you simply have not seen the Magalies in all it's glory. Rock formations and mountain-scapes that are undescribably beautiful. Cottages and Camping avalable for weekenders but you can go for the day and have...More
