A look inside

The Farm and Surrounds

The game farm situated in the Magaliesburg – named Battle Creek – is aptly named with a history of being part of the many battlefields for soldiers colliding during 1899 WWII, until the 19th  century. On what used to be President Paul Kruger’s private hunting farm, this area has old forts and ruins that can still be seen scattered around the property today.  The farm, which forms part of the Cradle of Humankind, is rich in history of each and every battle fought and is now a tranquil abyss of interesting archaeology, land, bush, and beast.

The Magaliesburg mountain range lies between the Highveld Savanna of the Witwatersrand and the African Bushveld, stretching from Rustenburg in the west past Pretoria in the East.  This mountain range is almost 100 times older than Everest with interesting geology, archaeology, fauna, and flora.  From African Tribes to Voortrekkers, battles to great hunts, the Magaliesburg has seen it all.

When walking in this malaria-free area you’ll experience something you just can’t explain – the smell, the diversity and just being in the big South African outdoors is what makes this area so incredibly special.

Walk in the footsteps of intense history and enter a world lapped in luxurious accommodation and activities for the whole family while adding alluring hunting safari adventures of a lifetime.
