A beautiful remote spot on top of the mountain. Staying on an old farm was nostalgic for me and my wife. Had everything we needed and it was comforting to see that Hilde ensures that invasive plants are eradicated on the farm. And wow - no litter to be seen anywhere.
Our thanks to Hilda for providing this unique little spot in Africa.

If you want a real in-the-country feel then this is the place. The indigenous surrounds on a north-facing slope makes for wonderful peace. There is no noise! There is no light pollution! Hilde is the most charming, caring host filled with passionate knowledge of her flora and fauna. The cottages are clean and well serviced with a old fashioned charm. We liked the fact of some dirt road because it felt a little further removed from Jozi despite being just 75 minutes from us. Take everything with you because you really won't want to jump into the car to go anywhere else.

We booked the log cabin with a beautiful view over the valley. The place was spotless and very cozy. Our hostess Hilde gave us such a warm welcome that we immediately felt at home from the moment we arrived. I would highly recommend this establishment to anyone seeking a peaceful weekend or week away from the city.

I decided on short notice to escape JHB and head out to the magaliesberg for some peace and quiet. Hilde was exceptionally accomodating and a wonderful host. I stayed in the 2bedroom cottage with a wonderful patio that has the most gorgeous view over the valley and mountains. The cottage has the old farmhouse feel and although not new/modern, catered for all needs. This really is a great spot to sit with a book, unwind and soak up the scenery!

We stayed at Veldflora Farm on the weekend of 7th to 10th of August as a weekend get-away in the wooden cottage, and we were pleasantly surprised! In my very honest opinion, this is not the Hilton or the Ritz, so if that is what you are looking for, you will be disappointed. If you are looking for a gazillion activities for yourselves or the kids to do, you will have to do some driving. BUT, if you are looking for a place that will allow your soul to find some peace and quiet and just relax, then you are at the right place! The view and absolute quiet surrounding the cottage is something to come back for time and again, something we have every intend of doing. Veldflora farm in our opinion offers excellent value for money if you just want to get away from it all. This is definitely one of the hidden gems of the Magaliesburg area, and we hope it stays that for awhile.

Most of the attractions are not very far from each other. We didn't have to drive so far for the activities.

The view of the Magalies mountain was beautiful and the people from Afristay and the Thaba ranch were very friendly. Viva Magalies people.
