Buffelspoort Self-catering in Buffelspoort
Mount Serene


Mount Serene provides tranquil self catering units, fully equipped incl. private splash pool, braai and indoor fire place. We are situated on the slopes of the Magaliesberg Mountains, about 30 kilometre from the town of Magaliesburg on the R24; less than 100 kilometre from Johannesburg or Pretoria.

There are two options available: A secluded stone cottage (sleeps two) perfect for a romantic getaway or a converted railway coach (sleeps maximum eight) great for the family. The units are very well separated to ensure absolute privacy of guests at all times. Each unit has its own sparkling mineral-water splash pool and braai area.

All units have an indoor log fireplace for those chilly winter evenings, although temperatures here seldom fall below +6 degree C. Whether you choose to relax at the pool side, walk to the mountain plateau, explore iron-age ruins, hike to the top of the Magaliesberg mountains or identify some of the 300 species of birds found in the area, you are guaranteed a peaceful break from the city life. There are many recreational and sporting facilities close by, including game drives, horse riding, trout fishing, golf, tennis, quad biking, magalies meander and hot air ballooning to name but a few.

    It was a fabulous place - very private and secluded and very romantic. How about heating the splash pool's water for winter times ??? All in all a very nice experience.
