About Hornbill Lodge

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.

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.

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.

                          The bathrooms are just too far from the camp site.

                          The family dogs and the friendly reception we received, other than that everything else was a disappointment, far away from the ablution block, no grass, cold, backed up after the first night.

                          We were camping for the weekend. The place is nice and clean. Paul from reception is very friendly and helpful. There is a road near the spot, but it didn't bother much. A bit of a walk to the bathrooms. Loved the relaxed feeling you get from such a place. Awesome swimming pool and river.

                          I would definately recommend this establishment. It was in a lovely setting, the food was excellent and the hosts were lovely.We enjoyed every minute of our stay and it was an extra bonus that they had such lovely dogs for our child to play with.Really a lovely and charming place!
