Our family spent weekend in log cabins there, and value for money not there. The cabins are run down, lights not working, crockery and cutlery not checked by staff, no braai tongs, towels had dead moths in them, maintenance on cabins way overdue as windows don't all close.... Shower head in unit 7 became hand shower as maintenance crew didn't... More

Me and a few friends were there on Friday, to catch up as two of them were visiting from London. We were 10 people all together, just enjoying each others company, we were doing nothing more than just talking to one another. In fairness, we had not read the rules and regulations of the park and were unaware of the... More

Maglies Mountain Sanctuary Park is a great place to escape and experience the great outdoors and what the Magliesburg Mountains are all about. Picture crystal clear rock pools, amazing boulder stacks, waterfalls, hidden grottos and the most breath-taking views of the nearby Bronkhorstspruit Dam. All the walks are easy for both young and old though they do offer unlimited hiking... More

Mountain Sanctuary Park is an institution for Joburg and Pretoria residents. I've been visiting it for over 30 years, probably a hundred times, and while the facilities have been upgraded over that time, the tranquillity and beauty of the place has never changed. It is the number 1 attraction in the Johannesburg area that I tell visitors to go and... More

A very well kept reserve. If you appreciate the natural beauty of the Magaliesberg then this is a must see. I try to not stay away for longer than 6 months. The trad climbing here is also incredible! The land management is very strict and so the preservation of the area is impecable

This park is my escape from city life. There are chalets which I have not stayed in and camp sites. We always go camping for the fun of it and just love the camp sites here as they are clean and well kept. Each site is large enough so that you're not anywhere near the next person. There is a...

Mountain Sanctuary park is a very good opportunity to escape from the citi - about 90 minutes drive - and have a nice hiking or biking in the bush. I can recommend as a day trip, or even better spend a night or two in the camp or in a challet. Hiking is a very nice activity and in the... More
