About Mount Serene

Mount Serene is situated on the slopes of the Magaliesberg Mountains, about 30 kilometre from the town of Magaliesburg on the R24; less than 100 kilometre from Johannesburg or Pretoria.

There is no TV. We are no longer pet friendly.There are two options available; a secluded stone cottage, which sleeps two, perfect for a romantic getaway or a converted railway coach, which sleeps eight, great for the family.

The units are very well separated to ensure absolute privacy of guests at all times. Each unit has its own sparkling mineral-water splash pool and braai area. All units have an indoor log fireplace for those chilly winter evenings, although temperatures here seldom fall below +6 degree C. Whether you choose to relax at the pool side, walk to the mountain plateau, explore iron-age ruins, hike to the top of the Magaliesberg mountains or identify some of the 300 species of birds found in the area, you are guaranteed a peaceful break from the city life.

There are many recreational and sporting facilities close by, including game drives, horse riding, trout fishing, golf, tennis, quad biking, magalies meander and hot air ballooning to name but a few.

Mount Serene provides tranquil self catering units, fully equipped including a private splash pool, braai and indoor fire place.

Family friendly: We have a kiddies swing, jungle gym and trampoline on the premises.

          The carriage was nice and clean. The kitchen supplies(crockery and cutlery) was generous, they even have a stick to cook you pap with! The kids loved that they had their own swimming pool!

          Lovely time of year to be in the Bush, so many grasses and wildflowers to see. The hike up the mountain was significant but so worth it when reaching the top. The cottage was Lovely, we had everything we needed and the seclusion/ privacy was fantastic, it felt like we were completely alone in the world.

          Although it’s the beginning of the year, this was definitely the best thing I’ve done in 2020. We literally had everything that we needed and it was a great place to unwind before getting back to work. Definitely coming back :)
