The Magic of Magaliesburg





People come to Magaliesburg for all sorts of reasons, but mainly to escape the cut-and-thrust of city life.  It’s no wonder, then, that country lodges that offer such an escape abound in the area.

  Whispering Pines
WP   One such place that offers a special take on tranquillity is Whispering Pines Country Lodge.  If you are looking for an escape where your privacy and comfort are paramount, this is the lodge for you.  Quiet, uncrowded, exclusive; it has everything you need at hand, within an easy an hour’s drive from Johannesburg.  It’s a great favourite with couples, honeymooners,  for small conferences and intimate garden weddings.
Fourteen luxuriously appointed and beautifully furnished lodges are tucked away each in their own natural woodland setting – an environment where birdlife abounds and silence really does seem to be golden.  Service is outstanding, as noted in the visitor’s book by many satisfied guests who return again and again for the nurturing they receive from well-trained staff headed up by Richard Cox.  
  Philip Penn has been chef at Whispering Pines for the past 7 years.   Swiss trained and with a wealth of experience, he ensures that all your culinary delights and dietary needs are catered for. A well-stocked, cozy bar offers a warm, friendly meeting place should you wish to mingle with other guests. By the way, if you’re thinking of Christmas Lunch in the country, book early as Philip’s magnificent festive spread at Whispering Pines is legendary.


The Sanctuary Wellness Studio offers world class treatments and products and is managed by an internationally trained therapist.  This popular Spa offers double treatments for couples, but prior booking is essential.  


Small conferences are popular at Whispering Pines where companies can often be guaranteed exclusive use of the venue.  There are many activities and teambuilding sessions which can be viewed on their website
