The original Magoebaskloof Hotel was built in 1937, located on Magoebaskloof Road, between Polokwane and Tzaneen in the Haenertsburg region. An unspoilt setting was chosen for the hotel’s location with glorious views extending to Duivelskloof, Modjadji and beyond. The hotel was built among indigenous bush and trees. The Magoebaskloof was built by Archie and Eileen Rankin.

What Our Clients Have to Say
This is a superb hotel - everything is first rate from the gorgeous gardens to the fine dining in the beautiful dining room. We loved our stay there. The pool is large so you can actually do lengths and it has a magnificent view from the rooms. The hotel bar is warm and friendly and speaks of a different time. We met the 2 sons of the owner who were terrific. They have a lot of exciting plans for this new family venture and we wish them well and hope to return in the future.
