Hornbill Lodge offers luxury accommodation in the Riverine Forest on the banks of the Magalies River, in Magaliesburg, South Africa.
An ideal location for those needing to be close to the cities of Johannesburg and Pretoria or the “Lost City”, but away from the crowds.
The architect-designed Guest Lodge offers superb accommodation in peaceful surroundings – the luxury of the city and the best of the country.
The Magalies River
The Magalies River flows strongly all year round attracting a large variety of birds, butterflies and river creatures. The resident Leguaan takes a sunbathe on the rocks in the river!
Activities include bird-watching, swimming, walking along, or just relaxing on the river banks. Golf driving range, horse-riding, tennis, squash, hot air ballooning all nearby.
New Self Catering Unit Available!
Take the whole family! This new value for money self catering unit can sleep up to six at affordable rates. Enjoy a private braai area with amazing views of the mountain
Hornbill Picnic Areas
They provide all the food and drinks, (even braai and fires etc.), all you need to do is bring a picnic rug, relax and make yourself at home. Leave the clearing up and dishes to them.
Bookings Essential !!
There are four private sites from which you may choose:
Rocky Hollow, a secluded rocky “amphitheater” on the banks of the river almost under the shadow of the beautiful Redelinhuys bridge. Plenty of shade and bird life. Watch the fish jumping.
Rock Pool, this is the Legendary site of Lovers Rock. High cliffs and a large rock pool. (“Daredevils” do jump of here, but we strictly advise against this – there maybe anything under the water!) A beautiful site, but sometimes a little busy as everyone wants to visit the Rock.
Running Waters, sited at a rapid just below the Restaurant, this is a lovely spot to river watch, maybe you’ll be lucky enough to spot a Clawless Otter, or one of our small Leguaans. Just the sound of the white waters is enough to wash away the cares of the week!
