"I stayed at the Serenity house. Firstly it was absolutely clean. The house itself is rustic which I love. Myself and my husband enjoyed the peacefulness and tranquility that Mamagalie has to offer. We had horses visit us in the morning which was such a pleasant surprise as they came right up to the fence.
Giles was an absolute gem of a person to meet. The glass balcony doors make the house really cool and calm to when having a bit of a cat nap during the afternoon. The Jacuzzi and splash pool were amazing and we really enjoyed the outside shower as well. I will definitely be back to try out the other places. Only little problem which was from our side. Is a 4x4 would definitely be a must. Especially if it has been raining. Other than that my husband and myself had a spectacular time. We would definitely be back again soon. Thanks Giles. "

Surely I will come back again soon and I recommend Mamagalie Mountain Lodge to others. We manage to walk to Rock Pools 3km walk an amazing natural place, nature at its best.
The only concern was the road especially to the Bush Lodge, you strictly need 4x4. Thanks to Charles for his kindness and assistance whenever we needed help also informing us about Rock Pools."

"Our stay at Mamagalie was beyond our expectations. The owners are very professional and friendly, our room was amazing, very clean, romantic and had everything we needed. Not to mention the outside shower in the treetops. This was certainly a wow factor.

It was great to relax, have a braai in nature with the sounds of the animals calling at night and just enjoy the company of your loved one.

It was honestly a home away from home and I would recommend this place to anyone who would like to spoil themselves, whether it is just because or for a special occasion."

Even though it was a wet weekend, we spent our nights sipping on something warm infront of the fireplace. Unfortunately we couldn't visit the Rock Pools, but we enjoyed our weekend nevertheless.

Thank you very much Giles and Melanie."

"This was my 2nd visit to this absolutely amazing establishment and I fell in love a little more! My previous stay was at River Lodge and this time my boy's and I stayed at Bush Lodge and what a treat it was.
The addition of the main bedroom is just beautiful and the view is breath taking, so much so that I never closed the curtains once! The views surround this beautiful lodge and you are left spoiled for choice.
A hike up to the rock pools is an absolute MUST! We spent the better half of Saturday their picnicking, swimming and exploring! My boys had an absolute blast! We had a "visit" from squirrels on both mornings which is something us city slickers don't get to see everyday.
Once again the friendliness and warm welcome from Giles never disappoints and the lodge was clean, well equipped and very comfortable. A real home-away-from-home experience.
Sadly, all good things must come to an end but it has already been decided that we will be visiting again but this time we will be booking into the Mountain Lodge and we cannot wait to go back!"


"What a beautiful place "

(South Africa) thandi | 30 October 2018

"I can't stop talking about the place. The welcoming love from Giles, the environment to the best place I've visited before. The nature, happy sounds of the birds in the morning and noon was awesome. The cleanliness and the safety was excellent. "


"Re-connecting"

(South Africa) Elzette | 22 October 2018

"Pictures can't do justice to the beautiful and magical setting of this lodge. Besides this, the greater farm on which it is situated is a piece of paradise. During our 3 night stay we had nice long walks on the farm, encountered lots of game, saw monkeys and squirrels up close from the tree house in which we stayed.
The twin spa bath is a hit and having an outdoor shower is a must from high up between the branches.The bird sounds are plentiful and the unit is well equipped with everything a person needs.
What excellent value for money. The hosts Giles and Mel are wonderful people; Be sure to buy a bottle (or 10 if you dread running out as we did) of Mel's homemade lemon cordial, it truly is the real deal.
Each one of the lodges on this farm is unique and in a different environment, so you can experience something different every time you go to one. They are also all secluded and private so you get the feeling of being in your own private lodge.
We definitely look forward to visiting this gem in the heart of the Magaliesberg mountains and bush again soon; what an awesome weekend it was with wonderful memories!!!"

Tranquility is the perfect description for this stay."


"Stunning views"

Juan Watters | 28 November 2017

We had the most peaceful, relaxing weekend we've had in years! The lodge is extremely private & really provided the 'break from the world' that we needed. The lodge has everything you need in terms of linen, crockery, cutlery, etc. & is beautifully maintained & clean. The bathroom is just stunning - no blinds or curtains required! The outside shower is an added bonus. The lodge has it's own private splash pool & braai area. The bird-life is abundant, and we spotted vervet monkeys & a small buck on our walk around the farm. Great value for money! We will definitely be back :)"

"We had the pleasure of staying at the Mountain Lodge. What a great and relaxing place. Location is stunning with a beautiful view. Giles is friendly and helpful, and the overall experience was great. The lodge is comfortable with good beds and nice linen. Huge, fully stocked kitchen, nice bathrooms, and comfortable chairs. The TV is upstairs by the bunk beds making it easy to entertain the kids. Main deck makes an amazing place to entertain and the upstairs deck is perfect for an evening drink and morning coffee. Daily cleaning is a good bonus for a self-catering lodge. I would highly recommend Mamagalie Mountain Lodge to anyone that is looking for a peacful and relaxing getaway. I look forward to coming back again soon."

The lodge has all the facilities expected of a good standard. We were particularly impressed with the welcome we received and the info available from Giles, who is an excellent host. Once you are there, you are left to your own devices to enjoy your stay in whatever manner you please which was great. Couldn't recommend it higher, would definitely stay again. On the same property is the Mountain Lodge which looked like a fantastic place to go and relax (or party!) with 10 or so friends. Great stuff!!! "

"Our two grown up children and my husband and I spent a fantastic three nights at two of the lodges at Mamagalie Mountain Lodge. The favourite of course, was the Bush Lodge, with it's part tented bedroom and lounge area, and the view over the valley and dam!

I can truly say that I felt this was outstanding value for money! The attention to detail made it an extremely comfortable self catering break! The whole ambiance of the lodge was magical!

We loved it, and if we were local, would be there regularly - still, it's a definite on our return when we go to SA for our daughter's graduation in a few years time!

Highly, highly recommend it - absolute tranquility for you to recharge your batteries, and sense nature's miracles around you!"

"This was one of the most memorable weekends we had in a long time. The lodge is exquisite and the view absolutely awesome. The extreme privacy of the lodge makes it an ultimate weekend break-away destination. We still wanted to explore the whole Magalies Meander but never left the lodge. Even though the road to the lodge is pure 4x4 route and not a BMW sedan like ours our would rather borrow a vehicle next time than change the road as it only compliments the whole idea of privacy and exclusivity. We will definitely return again and again. It was great to hear all the night sounds and not worry like we do in the city.

"If you want to get away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life and take in what nature has to offer, then this is definitely the place to go. The view and scenery is spectacular, and it has more than everything you could ever need to enjoy your vacation.

We spent two nights there, which I wish were longer. And we will definitely return and bring all our friends.

There is also a fantastic walk to the rock pools that you can do, we took a picnic basket up there and spent a lovely day in the sun with the relaxing sound of the stream flowing past us.

All in all we had a wonderful time there and would love to go again.

We wouldnÕt hesitate to recommending Mamagalie Mountain Lodge to anyone.

"I love and adore nature, especially trees, and the Tranquility Lodge is surrounded by trees which to me was absolutely magical. The trees are beautiful and the tree-lodge blends in perfectly with its surroundings and you feel as if you are literally living inside the forest but with all the luxuries of modern life. I loved the spa bath and candles with unobstructed views as well as the awesome outdoor shower.
I loved eating outside on the deck, listening to the birds chatting and watching the squirrels play.

This was such a nurturing, relaxing and revitalising experience for body, mind and Soul. I shall be back soon!
Thank you for creating this magical place.

We went for a 4.5km hike to the rock pool which was lovely. Mountain Lodge is spacious and clean, and has all that we needed, a great place to get away too."

"This was our second stay at Mamagalie and again we were completely satisfied with our choice.
Rather than staying at the same unit we stayed at last time, we decided to spice things up and get a different unit. The scenery we could look at the whole day, waking up, while lying in bed, having a Jacuzzi, it was so peaceful and calming for the soul, complete serenity as the name of the unit. This will be a spot we will surely miss when moving overseas, but if we have the opportunity to visit South Africa, indeed this would be our in-land get-away.
We dared the hike to the rock pools. It was not so much of getting to the rock pools, but rather the peaceful, untouched walk there and back that was the highlight.
Thank you Giles and your team for again making our stay memorable.

The surrounding of the open field in front of the lodge was so calming and relaxing. The special jacuzzi spa on the front deck overlooking the land area was amazing and a sure winner. The braai area is also amazing and well maintained. The walk to the Rock pools was very challenging and tough but worthwhile. Will definitely be back to make use of other 5/6 lodges on estate which obviously will give you another special treat. Keep up the good work Giles and team."

Little did we know we will fall in love and appreciate Mother Nature like we did. Forest Lodge is a lovely clean and comfortable 1 bedroom unit with a gorgeous bathroom. We enjoyed the fireplace tremendously, as it was rather nippy. What an amazing host Giles is!!! So friendly, helpful and incredibly accommodating. I could write about the lodge for days, but the fact that we made another reservation while sitting at the fireplace should speak volumes. Just hope I'll be in better shape then. A Well deserved and well rested getaway just an hour and a half from Joburg. THANK YOU FOR SHARING YOUR LITTLE PEACE OF HEAVEN WITH US GILES!

Giles was the perfect host and really went out of his way to pack the start of a fire, leave matches in the kitchen and a lovely vanity box in the bedroom.

Thanks for the dish washing soap you left!

We would definitely visit Mamagalie Mountain Lodge again."

"Mamagalie, is the perfect getaway for two nights, simple, clean and meets every basic need. To just get yourself grounded and out of the city, it works like a charm! Beautiful views and clean air, nobody to disturb you, just you and your thoughts. The 3km hike was so worth it, and again, good for the soul. Took us out of our comfort zones, and put us back in nature, early nights, earning mornings, gorgeous sunset and sunrises, what we take for granted each day. Definitely, recommend and Giles the owner was such a honey! "

"Our stay at Mamgalie Lodge exceeded expectations. The hostess, Melanie went out of her way to ensure that we had everything we needed and nothing was too much trouble for her. She even offered to collect anything we might need from the nearby town. The lodge was beautifully clean and it was so peaceful and quiet. There are lots of animals and birds and you soon forget that you are only an hour and 45 minutes from Johannesburg. I can really recommend anyone who wants to get away from the rat race for a well deserved rest in total privacy, peace and quiet, Mamgalie Lodge is the place to consider, and is an ideal venue for a honeymoon couple. Once again, a special word of thanks to Melanie. We will definitely go back."

"My husband (who mostly works out of the country) and I spent the most glorious peaceful weekend in the Forest Lodge recently. The lodge, which is completely remote from everything and everyone else on the farm, provides every possible convenience and comfort, despite being totally off the grid. Despite a very late check-in the owners were very accommodating. Only a 2 hour drive from the East Rand, we felt completely recharged - would have been nice to have another day - but we will definitely go back for that opportunity."


"What a way to Celebrate My 31st Birthday Weekend"

Giles and Mel went out of their way to get us the little amenities that turn to be extremely important when you realize how far they are from reach. We owned the place, got ourselves some goodies from Mel's shop and took pictures with them. We are getting a Jeep and definitely going back for at least a week. Big ups"

Sundowners in the evening spent watching the monkeys, found some rather scary looking spiders and even got to see some bokkies and dassies on one of our many walks.
The Lodge was peaceful and beautifully presented, we felt great about the fact that Forrest Lodge ran on solar power and we could even be green on holiday. I have never walked so far! But it was great exploring the farm every day.
Thank you for a wonderful getaway and a fantastic birthday, we will definitely be back!"

The Forest Lodge at Mamagalie Mountain Lodge proved to be the perfect setting and the beauty of the surrounding forest made our time there fabulous. All the rooms had large windows and sliding doors leading outside, and the bathroom was really stunning. The calls of jackalls and hyena, with the moon shining through the large skylights, made the nights even more spectacular. The perfect place for lovers."
