Mooinooi's proximity to the Magaliesburg promises outdoor activities, particularly hiking, sightseeing and golf. Not too far from Hartebeespoortdam with the Chameleon village, snake and animal farm, elephant sanctuary, monkey sanctuary and Buffelspoortdam.

Maretlwane Guest House


Sugarbush Hill

Sugarbush Hill lies on the northern slopes of a peaceful valley in the Magaliesberg Mountain Range. We are on the Rustenburg side of the range, about 50 km from Hartebeespoort Dam and 25 km from Rustenburg. It takes just over an hour to get to us from Fourways and an hour and a quarter from the eastern suburbs of Pretoria.

All our units are set at the foot of a hill and all have their own braais, carports and deep stoeps with panoramic mountain views. Guests are welcome to explore the 11Ha of indigenous bush.

Sugarbush Hill gets its name from the Common Sugarbush, Protea caffra which can be found in abundance on the hillside just behind the units. All the cottages have been named after indigenous plants found in the Magaliesberg area. Wherever possible, alien species have been done away with or replaced with indigenous plants. As a result, our bird life is prolific and slowly but surely we are creating a natural haven where city folk can enjoy the peace and tranquility of the Buffelspoort valley. We have identified and tagged a lot of indigenous trees on our property, so if you would like to brush up on your tree knowledge, bring along a tree book and spend some time looking them up. 

We can now proudly say that we are a 3-star establishment, after having been graded by the Tourism Grading Council of S.A. This means that our guests can be assured of certain minimum standards.

Things to do on and around Sugarbush Hill

We do provide limited entertainment for our guests,TV in lapa, pool, darts, jacuzzi, table tennis, there is also a lot to see and do in our area if you want to. A lot of our guests simply relax and enjoy the peace and quiet.

We have a swimming pool, which is essential for those hot summer days. We have put bird identification books in all our units, so don't forget your binoculars if you are a birder.

There is 11Ha of indigenous bush to explore, with a stunning view from the top of the hill. However, if you want structured hiking trails, we can direct you to some of the best hiking in the area. Most of our guests use Kranskloof, a 400Ha farm that is literally 5km from Sugarbush. The farm boasts a choice of marked trails, which take you through kloofs with running water and some of the best scenery that the area has to offer.
