Magaliesberg panorama

An hour driving from Johannesburg International Airport you can get an easily affordable bite of South Africa.
Often ignored by travel guides, I found the Hartbeespoort area rich of wildlife and offering amazing opportunities for backpackers on a tight budget.

Chance of a safe walking safari

Hiking through the Magaliesberg is safe and not too strenuous, and gives the chance of very close encounter with animals!

De Wildt Cheetah Sanctuary

An important feature of this area is the De Wildt Cheetah Sanctuary.
This centre has a project of breeding cheetah and trying wherever possible to reintroduce species into areas where they once occurred naturally.
