Buffelspoort - Northern Magaliesberg

The Buffelspoort area is certainly pretty - time for you to take a trip out there - select any of 5 views from the Virtual Tour below

The Buffeslpoort Valley lies between the northern slopes of the Magaliesberg Mountains and a line of low hills that shield it from the N4 highway. Once you are in this Valley it is so still and beautiful that you could never imagine that you were only just over an hour away from the hustle and bustle of City life. The Valley forms the catchment area of the Buffelspoort Dam, and it has been long known that it is safe to drink the water from any mountain stream in the area. It’s places like this in the Magaliesberg, where spectacular valleys, rivers, lakes and indigenous forests combine to make one of the most worthwhile day trips away from the city. 


Whether you're looking for an adrenaline packed afternoon on a Canopy Tour or hiking up the mountains, or for eating a scrumptious meal and treating yourself to a luxurious spa, chances are, you’ll find it here. Even angling for bass, swimming, and boating in the clear waters of the Buffelspoort Dam are awaiting you. There is plenty to do here, so be warned that a casual day trip might quickly turn into an extended weekend stay.

This fishing video gives you a good idea of the beautifully clear water of the Buffelspoort Dam, as well as the hills and vegetation around it. Oh - and you can also take a look at how this chap catches a carp!
