Mahikeng Lodge

Mahikeng Lodge


An uncompromising luxury experience providing an up-close & personal encounter with South Africa’s rugged bushveld awaits you at Mahikeng Lodge!
Be embraced by Africa’s true nature, and be lulled into a higher sense with the true beauty found in the hills of the Magaliesberg Meander.
A whole new world on Africa’s doorstep to the city! A unique luxury experience. Enjoy a game farm with 13 different species of game and extensive bird life.

Spend the day relaxing around the swimming pool or cycling (the kids will love this) through the expansive farm, while African wild life laze in the shade of the Acacia trees only metres away from you. The magnificent kloofs and sheer rock faces that surround Mahikeng Lodge are best explored by foot or horseback, while the look-out points boast magnificent sights of the expansive land that lies before you.

The picturesque viewing deck, perched on the highest point of the farm, offers a breathtaking panoramic view of the entire lodge and beyond into the valley of the Magalies Mountains. Watch the sun paint the sky as the baboons on the nearby cliff bid farewell to the day while you sip on sundowners
or get down on one knee for a romantic marriage proposal.

Cradle Mountain Trophy – Magaliesburg mountain biking

Cradle Mountain Trophy

Cradle Mountain Trophy


This two-day mountain biking event promises to be an exhilarating experience and will take place over the weekend of 20th and 21st of April 2013. Based at Maropeng, in the heart of The Cradle of Humankind, the event is one of a kind.

It also forms part of the 2013 Cradle Festival and Wine Weekend.

The Cradle Mountain Trophy promises a fantastic offering of single track, plus some challenging off-road, and of course some good technical aspects. But do remember that we are calling this the “Mountain Trophy” for good reason. It is not all flat. We will be making good use of tracks and trails which have previously been used for private events. On these farms you will be riding amongst some amazing wildlife such as Zebra, Wildebeest and even Rhino.

It’s tough, it’s technical, but if you’re doing either Joburg2C or Sani2C, this is the ideal event to get those legs into shape. In fact, it’s a must and chances are, it’s your last chance.
