Lots of horse riding opportunities in the vicinity. Towards Broederstroom is Bill Harrop's balloon safari's. Quite a few spa's on the road between Magaliesburg and Rustenburg. There is also fly -fishing and microlights or just relax on one of the farms and enjoy the peace and tranquility of the mountains.
Very close to Magalies is Maropeng which according to the fossils found there is where humankind started. The Sterkfontein caves is also close-by where the skull of Mrs Ples was found. The whole cradle where a number of skulls where found is quite a few hectars.
Within the visitor attraction lies an exciting 4-billion-year journey on an underground lake, through the elemental forces – water, air, fire and earth – dipping through waterfalls and real icebergs, into the eye of a storm, past erupting volcanoes and through the depths of the earth and emerging at the beginning of the world. From here, the journey continues through an experience highlighting the history of our world and humankind as a species, brought to life via audiovisual techniques, evocative sound effects, theme-park technology and theatrical displays. There are also real fossils on display at the visitor centre.

Unique settting in a fairy and goblin world. We chose the coffee shop. The restaurant was stunning but the meals are a bit limited (especially with picky children). Looked very nice though. The kids had cake. Stunning chocolate. I took a bite. Gary had a chicken wrap. Quite a big one. I had asparagus and cheese quiche. A bit cold but very tasty.
Favorite Dish: The cake.
While travelling to the Buffelspoort area we have found a 14km dirt road that was saving us a travel of around 60km. To our surprise it was a not too bad road to go and the view was just excellent.
Little fairy dresses for little girls. Lots of miniature fairies and goblins. You can also paint your own fairy. Lovely setting.
What to buy: If you like fairies get a few. Or just walk around and admire the beautiful place.
An old train shed changed into an arts and craft shop. Across the road 2 railway houses converted into overnight accommodation.
Candles that you can dip yourself into the colour you want. Used books at give away prices.
Even a few antiques.
What to buy: Candles and painted tiles.
What to pay: Average and the tiles are cheap
