4* Luxury Game Lodge in the Plumari Private Game Reserve in the Magaliesberg

African Hills Safari Lodge & Spa

African Hills Safari Lodge & Spa is situated on the Plumari PrivateGame Reserve in the Magaliesberg, just over an hour from Johannesburg or Pretoria and offers guests a memorable Big 5 wildlife experience within a malaria-free environment.

The Reserve is set within a pristine wilderness of 6800 hectares with natural African Bushveld and an abundance of flora, fauna, bird and wildlife.

The Main Lodge overlooks the Elephant Dam and invites guests to take a step back in time while admiring South African décor pieces dating back to the 1800s. Slipper baths, wash stands, luggage chests, antique Oregon cupboards and tables are subtly placed within the 4* surrounding, to emphasize the captivating history of the Magaliesberg area.

African Hills Safari Lodge & Spa has one of the largest private collections of ox wagons, carts and other animal drawn vehicles from the period 1800 – 1900. A variety of stone and iron-age artefacts, items from the SA War and San Bushmen rock carvings tell the history of the area, which is also known for the Battle of Nooitgedacht. Examples are available in the Museum and guided Bush Walks take guests through areas where many stone carvings (petroglyphs) can be found.

African Hills Safari Lodge & Spa caters for romantic getaways, conferences, teambuilding initiatives, training courses and weddings in its 48 rooms, the Main Lodge and the Day Visitors Centre.

Nature lovers and birding enthusiasts will find the experience most rewarding, while stressed city dwellers will leave feeling rejuvenated and well-rested.

Located in the heart of the Lodge is the Spa which opens up on to an outdoor pool and private garden.

The staff were exemplary.
Can’t wait to come again”.

CHAPEL WEDDING VENUE
The 120-seater chapel with its thatched roof, stained glass windows and bell tower was built with the input from historians. It’s a unique and beautiful space for special weddings, ceremonies of all kinds as well as for quiet reflection.

AKIRA WEDDING VENUE
Akira Wedding venue, which is situated in the Day Visitors Centre, accommodates up to 150 guests. It is abundant with African symbology, rich earthy colours and unique African décor focal points.  This upstairs wedding venue opens up on to the Azima Restaurant and Enzi Bar which has a beautiful wooden deck with view over the Magaliesberg mountain range. It is ideal for pre-wedding drinks or entertainment.

FOREST CHAPEL
The magical Forest Chapel is popular for couples with a yearning to get married in the outdoors. Surrounded by a lush forest and the hippo dam not too far away, this rustic venue has wooden benches and provides a blank canvas for creative bridal touches.

THE LAPA
Overlooking the Elephant Dam, The Lapa accommodates small groups of up to 40 people. With its central roaring fireplace, it is ideal for intimate Boma-type weddings. The beauty of The Lapa is that it is designed for socialising rather than sitting at one table for the entire wedding reception –  your guests will enjoy mingling around.

PLUMARI HERITAGE MUSEUM
The extremely elegant and adaptable Plumari Heritage Museum is a cultural and historical hub. Situated within the Gala Hall at Askari Lodge & Spa, the museum boasts one of the largest private collections of ox wagons, carts and other animal drawn vehicles from the period 1800 to 1900. Having transformed itself throughout the years, the Plumari Heritage Museum is  the perfect venue for weddings, product launches and corporate events.

BUSH BOMA
The Bush Boma situated in a forest is a lovely rustic set up inviting you to sit down and immerse yourself in the stillness. Red rocks from the farm were used to demarcate the area with a hip-height wall all around. The fire pit is surrounded by cut tree trunks and benches. The Bush Boma is great for year end functions and informal weddings.

Wedding site inspections:  We would love to show you our beautiful wedding venues and ask if you could let the wedding co-ordinator know in advance should you wish to view the venues over a weekend.
