Welcome to Magaliesberg Range
An hour’s drive from Pretoria and less than two from Jo’burg, but worlds apart in looks and attitude, the 120km-long Magaliesberg range is a favourite weekend escape for Gautengers. These mountains form a half-moon arc from Hartbeespoort Dam in the east to Rustenburg in the west. Forsake overly commercial Hartbeespoort Dam and hit the winding back roads leading off Rtes 104 and 24 to fully appreciate this region of scrub-covered rolling hills, streams, forests and lots of fresh, clean air. An added attraction is the recently resurrected cableway that hoists visitors to the roof of the Magaliesberg.
