Mountain Sanctuary Park is a privately owned nature reserve nestled in the Magaliesberg Mountains.

These majestic Mountains, 2 billion, 3 million years old, stand proud and untouched, enveloping the most magnificent crystal clear mountain pools and extraordinary rock formations, enticing you into a world of peace and serenity.

Someone once said, “if you cant relax here, you need medical attention”

We are very passionate about our Sanctuary, and love sharing our piece of heaven with like-minded people, we are extremely conservation conscious, and this, always comes first. Mountain Sanctuary is one of the last protected pieces of the Magaliesberg Mountain Range. We have manged to keep our rates as low as we can, so that people of all generations can enjoy nature at its best, in unspoilt surrounds, and appreciate the peace and quiet, away from traffic, noise and light pollution.

We pride ourselves on our well-earned reputation of being one of the quietest, most peaceful places in South Africa. We have managed to maintain this by enforcing our rules and regulations strictly, not allowing any noise in the reserve at all, at any time, NO music, Radios, TV, Loud phones, screaming, shouting etc is allowed at all. We do not allow parties, rowdy groups or the like. Guests will be asked to leave immediately should they break the rules or cause a disturbance.

Klipspringers, monkeys, jackal, warthog and so much more can be found in and around camp as well as the remarkable beauty of flora, bird and butterfly life, making our Sanctuary an incredible experience for bird watches, botanists and hikers. We have re-introduced Zebra, Giraffe, Blue Wildebeest, Red Hartebeest, Kudu, Bles buck and more to our Sanctuary, adding a wonderful experience to the already gorgeous scenery.

We are essentially a hiking reserve; offering trails that range from 15 minutes to 8 hours, you will not be restricted by guided hikes and set routes as a guest staying over, thus having the freedom to enjoy over 1000 hectares of land.

Mountain bike routes have been established for Mountain bike enthusiasts. The routes are 12 km in total and are very adventurous. We limit day visitors strictly, and only allow groups in during the week, and during quieter periods, these bookings are subject to availability, and guides are enforced for groups, to monitor the rules and regulations.

We offer spectacular 3 star accommodation, including intimate stone chalets and stunning log cabins, some of which are on stilts overlooking the valley and others that are privately nuzzled into the reserve. All privately located. These units are fully equipped self catering and each has their own private braai facility as well as indoor fireplaces for those nippy winter nights. These units sleep between 2 and 6, depending on the unit. Bedding and towels are supplied.

Cosy Camping huts are available at amazing rates for those that love the idea of camping, but prefer a bed to sleep in and the basic luxuries of electricity, lights, basic camping style crockery/cutlery/utensils, fridge and 2 plate stove, also great for those that don’t have the camping gear needed to be completely self-sufficient.  These huts are all situated on prime sites, with large spaces around them they are close to the ablutions, and water taps for convenience. We supply the bottom sheets to the beds, but you need to bring your additional bedding, pillows and towels along with you. These have 2 single beds and a bunk bed.

We offer superb camp sites as well, each measuring approximately 20m x 20m. Ideal for tents and caravans, each site comes equipped with braai and grid and some of the sites have access to power points.

The reserve also offers freezer facility for all campers. Our ablution facility is well kept and offers guests the comfort of hot water showers, private toilets and washing-up facility. A small shop with basic necessities is available at the office.

Our stunning swimming pool built from natural stone is available to all guests, with a deck that overlooks the valley, braai facility, picnic area and loungers. Refreshments are available at the pool area.

StasOmbs is our beautiful restaurant situated at the top of camp, at the base of the mountain, offering amazing views from each and every seat, really good affordable food and a large, centered fireplace for winter.

Our menu offers home style cooking, great selections, amazing pizza and an on-site consumption liquor license. The décor speaks of fun and home, everything from the tables to the wine rack, fireplace and table clothes, has been handmade us, and our dedicated, awesome staff.  We provide family style meals on request, meals in the units can be provided, and we offer group catering, arrange celebrations, romantic settings, conferencing, kids parties etc.

High View Chapel is a special, spiritual place for us, it is non-denominational, and is perfect for either religious, or non-religious ceremonies. We built this beautiful chapel on a hill, overlooking the reserve, with the intention of hosting low cost, natural weddings. For those that don’t want all the frills and excessive price tags, and just want to have what marriage is all about each other in the perfect moment. Our chapel seats 80 comfortably. Large doors and windows allow for each guest to enjoy the view, and the deck allows for couples to get married either inside or outside, without influencing the guest seating.

A large lawn outside is the perfect setting for a natural outdoors reception,  and our indoor catering area, and bridal room are close by for convenience. The chapel is also a gorgeous place to host memorials, baptisms, special celebrations, renewal of vows, retreats, yoga sessions, art galleries etc. the location is remote, and approx. 3 km from camp, allowing for privacy and seclusion.

We hope we have managed to give you a glimpse into Mountain Sanctuary Park through our eyes, and we look forward to sharing our sanctuary with you. With love Stacy and Owen
