NATURE AT ITS MOST SPECTACULAR!
Intaba Thulile, “peaceful mountain”, is a 450 hectare private game and cattle farm within the Magaliesburg Nature Conservancy. With its abundant birdlife, and variety of trees, ferns, flowers and grasses, it is a nature lover’s paradise.
Game viewers will not be disappointed, as the farm is home to a variety of buck - gemsbok, nyala, impala, rooihartebees, blesok, eland, waterbuck - as well as zebra, warthog, jackal, ostriches, and a family of gorgeous, graceful giraffe. A leisurely walk in the nature reserve will ensure that you get ‘up close and personal’ with the game.
Intaba Thulile offer a hiking trail to the top of the mountain where you will be awestruck by the views and the peace. Take a picnic and spend the day. The reserve includes 2,5 kilometres of the Magaliesburg mountain range, so you can choose to either relax and gaze upon the unforgettable views; or actively explore the ancient kloofs, the cliffs, the crevices, and the extraordinary rock formations.
