Welcome to the Sky Lodge, a unique self catering stone and thatch lodge on the side of the mountain overlooking the Hartbeespoort Dam and surrounding Magaliesberg mountains.

On top of the hill we have the exclusive 12 sleeper Red Sky Lodge and Blue Sky Lodges each with private pools and boma. We also have the have the brand new (opening 15 December 2017) modern farm-style 8 sleeper Sunset Lodge with private pool, big boma and numerous decks overlooking the valley. For larger groups of 20 guests or more we recommend booking both the Blue Sky Lodge and Sunset Lodge as these 2 lodges are closest together.

Lower down the valley we have the private 6 sleeper Stone Lodge also with private pool and boma. This is the original homestead on the farm and has lots of character.

For smaller groups we have the two bedroom 4 sleeper Butterfly cottage with spa bath and Wild Monkey Tree cottage with Victorian bath. For 2 guests the best options are the 1 bedroom Valley cottage or studio Stone Suites, both with spa baths.

We want you to stay with us as long as possible, therefore we have some fantastic 3 and 4 night Midweek and Long Weekend Specials on offer. You can check prices by inserting your dates into the blue button that says "Availability + Rates + Make Online Booking" section and the system will work out the rate for your requested dates.
