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.
