Intaba Thulile, “peaceful mountain”, is a 450 hectare private game farm within the Magaliesburg Nature Conservancy.
As it is within easy access to Johannesburg – approximately 80km west – and some 90km’s from Pretoria, it is a perfect distance for a ‘getaway’ weekend for those seeking refuge from the rigors of urban stress.
The rolling savannah grassland plain, pristine bush, and the distinctive suikerbos and kiepersol tress are guarded over by the imposing amber cliffs of the mountain.
With its abundant birdlife; and variety of trees, ferns, flowers and grasses, the reserve is a delight for birdwatchers and nature lovers. It is a paintbox of colours : greens of every hue; reds, yellows, whites, blues and pinks of the many flowers – aloes, daisies, gladiola, wild dagga, morning glory, cats whiskers, star lily to mention but a few.
Game viewers will not be disappointed, as the reserve is home to a variety of buck as well as warthog, jackal, ostriches, and a pair of gorgeous, graceful giraffe,
The reserve includes 2,5 kilometres of the Magaliesburg mountain range where one can wander in awe, and see cape vultures and black eagles circling on the air current. Mountain reedbuck, grey rhebok, duiker, klipspringers, baboons, jackal, genet, Cape hares, dassies, porcupines all have their home here. The rock formations are fascinating and there are little surprises to enchant you, such as a circle of rocks to ponder over. The rose quartz glints in the sunlight and the gorges, with their dense indigenous trees and ferns, beg to be explored.

What People are Saying
My family of 4 enjoyed our night at Intaba Thulile. The area is beautiful and peaceful and we did some wonderful star gazing at night. There are lovely walks on the property and we did one particularly interesting hike to the top of the mountain, for wonderful views. The chalet is neat and fairly well equipped, and particularly good for a braai/barbecue.
Comfortable clean chalet with everything you need for a quick breakaway. Peace and quiet in abundance. Nice walking trail up the mountain. Also nice that you can walk anywhere on the farm to see the wildlife.
Such a wonderful, relaxing and peaceful getaway from the busy city. Accommodation, view and wildlife gave such a great atmosphere. This was definately needed and we will definately be going back. Thank you!
It has its serenity, so peaceful, I visit again. The hiking trails, we even saw some wild animals we had fun fun fun. Thank you Intaba Thulile for your hospitality. ooooh! the mountain view was exquisite, I probably visit again because I feel that I didn't do enough of what we needed to do...AWESOME
Intaba Thulile provided all the comforts needed for a weekend away. The chalets are quite large, and their proximity worked so well for 4 families to holiday together, but still maintain our privacy. The property has beautiful walks and a great laps to relax in at the pool. A very enjoyable stay.
