The bush is a nature lover's paradise, with numerous species of flora and fauna.
This self-catering luxury unit has a fully equipped kitchen, furnished to the highest standards with a large stove, fridge/freezer, and convection microwave.

Area Information:

he Barnard family, who trekked here in the late 1800's and surveyed the property on the 15th November 1892, originally owned the farm known as Barnaardsvlei. The original boundaries were laid out in on horseback with the assistance of Paul Kruger. Several skirmishes took place on the farm and those adjacent to it during the 2nd Anglo/Boer war. Numerous artefacts have been found as evidence of this. The property was originally leased to share croppers, who tilled the land with donkey-drawn implements and cultivated summer maize and winter wheat. They subsidised their income by trapping buck and baboons to sell in the towns.

The Conroy family purchased the farm on the 4th of May 1928. At this time the only improvements were a three-roomed stone and mud homestead, which the family occupied until 1945. Parts of the building are still used today as a workshop. On the occupation by the Conroy's, the property was fenced to contain a small herd of Africander cattle. Subsequently, a citrus nursery was established and 1200 Valencia orange trees were planted. The produce was sold locally.

In 1938 an export market to the United Kingdom was established; the fruit was delivered to Marikana Station by ox-wagon for onward delivery to Cape Town export harbour. The wheel hubs from that wagon can be seen in the aloe garden outside the lodge. The exports halted in 1939 when Mr Conroy enlisted to fight in the 2nd World War. He returned safely at the age of 58, ending his services in Italy with the Royal Durban Light Infantry, 6th Division, as a Vickers Machine Gunnery Sergeant.

The present owner has been involved with the farm since the age of five. After a business career linked to agriculture, he returned to his roots on retiring in 1985. Still actively farming in his 80's, his family is descended from some of the original Magaliesberg settler families of the late 1800s.

Mamagalie Lodge delivered everything they said they would and much more - they exceeded all our expectations. Our stay was comfortable and very private which is what we wanted. We had everything we needed. One can see a lot of thought went into setting up the river lodge. Can't wait to visit them again.
