Magoebaskloof Getaway provides a welcome stopover for business travellers, sales executives and holidaymakers. It is an oasis of peace and tranquility where one is able to unwind and enjoy the lush, subtropical vegetation.
Magoebaskloof Getaway`s cottages and campsites are serenely situated in a beautiful fertile valley on the escarpment of the Drakensberg in the scenic mountainous setting of Magoebaskloof. The cottages are less than three hours` drive from Pretoria.
You are at liberty to wander through the area, through the forests and explore the river while enjoying and experiencing the call of the prolific bird life in this peaceful environment. This district boasts some of the most beautiful and exotic gardens in South Africa. During spring there is a magnificence of brilliantly coloured azaleas and flowering cherries.
Come fly-fishing in the beautiful mountains of Magoebaskloof where trout fishing is an extremely popular pastime and sport. On the farm there is a beautiful Trout dam and another dam with bass. There is also a volleyball court, a jungle gym for the kids and a beautiful hiking trail with three lovely waterfalls. The hiking trail goes to the top of the farm alongside a perennial stream. While on your way up you can have a shower under the waterfall in crystal clean spring water.
