Nestled on the southern slopes of the Magaliesberg Mountain range is the predominantly farming area of Hekpoort, only a short drive from Hartbeespoort Dam and accessible from the south via a pass through the Daspoortrand, hence the name Hekpoort (meaning ‘gate’ in Afrikaans). Hekpoort is one of the closest areas to the Magaliesberg, the looming richly wooded mountain range with a flat top of quartzite rock - the playground of Jo’burgers wanting to get away from the city and much loved by hikers, mountain bikers and rock climbers alike. The area is incredibly beautiful and the almost consistently blue skies and typically sunny Gauteng weather mean that this part of the world is ideal all year round, so experience the best in Magaliesberg, by staying at one of the more luxurious Hekpoort accommodation options. ​The Karee & Wild Olive Guest Lodge offers luxurious accommodation on a working game farm where visitors can immerse themselves in nature by walking amongst our game such as sable antelope, kudu, nyala, springbok to name but a few, and not to mention the bird species, or having a breakfast picnic at one of the dams on the farm. We are perfectly situated and in close proximity of a range of wedding venues, leisure activities such as clay pigeon shooting, spas, yoga studios and romantic hot air balloon flights, to name but a few.

I went for a quiet midweek break and also to experience the bush, having been away from Africa for close to 2 years, and my was this an excellent break, and great value for money. The lodge was clean with a very nice layout, the surroundings were peaceful with a good view of the Magaliesburg Mountains, and the wild animals on the farm, with the Bush feel, and the sounds of the birds, its so nice to hear this when you wake up in the morning. Many thanks for your wonderful hospitality Ilze, this is greatly appreciated, you made me feel welcome from the minute I arrived until I left. I highly recommended for a quiet and blissful getaway either midweek or for a weekend break, and I will be back.

My wife and I visited Karee & Wild Olive Guest Lodge for 4 nights and we both had a peaceful and enjoyable stay. The lodge was clean and the surroundings were peaceful with a good view of the Magaliesburg Mountains. Ilze is an excellent host who tends to her guests from beginning to end and who goes the extra mile. It was a good experience and definitely worth a visit. You would never say its so close to Johannesburg as it feels like you in a completely different place just based on the tranquility of the place. Highly recommended for a weekend getaway!

We have just spent a wonderful weekend at Karee and Olive Guest Lodge with my family... the cherry on the top was a wonderful milestone birthday lunch for my wife, splendidly hosted by Ilze and her Team. The Lodge has many special features, art and luxury finishings. One doesn’t have to go to the Kruger to get the Bush feel, hear the birds and find some inner peace. Many thanks for your wonderful hospitality Ilze🙏🌈
