The Magic of Magaliesburg



Situated on the Southern Slopes of the Magaliesberg, Rustig offers the nature lover the rare opportunity to experience this historical mountain and behold it's beauty.



Rustig offers a choice of breakaways for your weekend. For the person wanting home comforts there is the old farmhouse, while the trail accommodation offers more rustic accommodation for those who want to enjoy the quiet of nature in a more primitive way.




What to do at Rustig

If you just need to get away from the noise of the city to relax, or if you want to test your energy levels against the trails. Rustig is just the place  for you. Experience what it was like in the Anglo-Boer War as you explore the trenches and lookout stations of the tough old Boer soldiers, or just appreciate the beauty of the Magaliesberg. The imposing krantzes are not just home to the Cape Vulture and the Black Eagle, but also the dwellings of long forgotten tribes. And it's all reached on a network of well planned trails.

Trail Descriptions


This is the longest circle and takes the trail through open grasslands,  suikerbos veld, thickly vegetated kloofs and Boekenhout veld to the " Tweeboomnekkie " at the crown of the mountain where you will be rewarded the breathtaking views, Boer war trenches and the ever present vultures, effortlessly gliding the thermals past you. From here the trail follows the crown of the range until you pass down through the " Klipmuurnek ". The trail descends quickly through fern covered slopes,  suikerbos veld and kloofs until you once again reach the basecamp.
