Hornbill Lodge and Legends, Magaliesburg 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.<br /><br />The Magalies River flows strongly all year round attracting a large variety of birds, butterflies and river creatures. The resident Leguaan takes a sun bathe 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. <br /><br />We offer a kiddies pool and a large swimming pool, our rolling lawns meet the river front in perfect harmony. For the keen fisherman we offer catch and release facilities, most of the fish are Trophy size. The lodge consists of six rooms and a lounge. All units are fully air-conditioned and luxuriously furnished. There are approximately 180 different bird species, and some smaller game. We cater for leisure guests, weddings, small conferences, birthday parties and another reason you have to celebrate.

"Mountain Hike & Pet friendly camping stay"

"The gardens are beautifully kept and the pools crystal clear. The guided hike was my favorite part, also it was my dogs first mountain hike. Its a 5km hike and takes only an hour. There is a beautiful cliff that rises out of the little dam and a running stream to fill it. I am a little worried about the pig-dog realationship but I'm sure they will get the dog under control. Overall good stay, Cobie, family and staff went out of their way to accommodate us and my dog. The tent setup assistance from Arrie was great too. The night guard that patrolled the grounds was a comforting security feature."

"What a lovely animal friendly place beautiful views BUT when camping your are way to far from the ablutions, which have the lowest toilets i've even seen and only 2 had working latches. The showers were not private. The road noise by the camp site was crazy, so not much sleeping.... I think if I go again it will be to stay in the rooms as they were fantastic and there is a beautiful logfire library/lounge to relax in. Truly is a stunning place."

"1.The ablution for campers must be shared with( showers and toilets):a .Day visitorsb. Kitchen staffc. General staff2. On the men side only one shower working.Tiles in showers loose and broken.Lot of unwanted jiggie slimy growth under loose tiles.3. The ablution is next to the swimming pool and miles away from the camp site. It is quite a trek to get there."

"Ons het ons verblyf by Hornbill lodge baie geniet, die natuurskoon is verskriklik mooi en dis lekker rustig!!Dit voel of mens indie bos is.....Wil net voorstel maak van dat daar badkamers aan die kampterrrein se kant ook opgerig word, die badkamers is regtig ver van die kampterein af en dis baie sleg as jy indie nag so ver moet loop vir die badkamers indie koue.Behalwe vir dit het ons regtig ons langnaweek daarso geniet en lekker uitgerus."

"Not even want to give it a star, no clear sign for reception, we have booked 3 nights but after the first night we left, no ablution facilities, we had to use the facilities at the swimming pool. The camp site is to close to the road, the whole day and night we had to listen to the cars and trucks passing, could not ever hear the birds in the trees, not even talking about the gun shots that we heard during the night. The only thing was the friendly staff after eventually founding reception, and the man that helped us setting up camp, they were excellent and very friendly. The "spa" area was very dirty and next to the laundry and you can see the cloths line, very unprofessional, the furniture is in a poor condition. Please take this accommodation of your list, i would never recommend this place to any one"

"The lodge is in a good area only if it had better accommodation, eating area, lounge and no dogs roaming in the lounge and eating area. The decor seem to have been done by auntie Hettie in the 60s the chef and dining room service was a disgrace. owners need to rise to the occasionthe place is in Gauteng serving people from Sandton (like Myself) and maybe or hopefully tourists from other countries."
