Situated within the Magalies Meander on a hilltop overlooking the scenic views of the Magaliesburg Mountains, Jackal Hill offers magnificent and beautifully maintained self-catering accommodation just 15kms from Magaliesburg. The beautifully established lodge is within close proximity to African Hills Safari Lodge and The Black Horse Brewery. The self-catering loge comfortably sleeps up to 18 guests, in which 4 stretchers can be added for any overflow of guests.

Perfectly designed for group getaways and family reunions, the entertainment area consists of a large thatched lapa, equipped with a bar, bar fridge, table tennis, dart board and a 12-seater dining table.

Hi Stacey, I just wanted to say thank you for the stay - it was absolutely fantastic and everybody loved it!

Liam (April 2021)

We had an amazing time at the lodge and everyone had lots of fun. We didn't have any issues or complaints. Thank you once again for accommodating the family. 

Teboho (December 2020)

Thank you for organising the booking - was really great!

Daniela (December 2020)

We had a wonderful time, beautiful neat place. 

Janice (November 2020)

We had a fabulous stay at the lodge and no complaints at all. Chris was amazing, such a beautiful host and Daniel too. We didn't break anything lol, will defiantly come back soon!

Baloyi (November 2020)

It was lovely, thank you for everything!

J.Robertson (March 2020)


The stay was fine, but I fear not really value for money. The towel rail in chalet 2 collapsed as soon as I hung up my towel, no curtain or blind in the main bedroom, very long to get hot water in the shower - such a waste of water (to perhaps put a bucket in the shower), horrible paper thorns on the shabby lawn, no can opener or bottle opener, we were advised to keep doors locked - is security an issue? Road needs some attention to avoid getting stuck when it rains. 

V. Kelly (February 2020) 


We had a lovely time and Daniel was great, we gave him a tip too! Thank you so much for your assistance!

P. Ramsay (February 2020)


I highly recommend staying at Jackal Hill - the photos simply don't do it justice, it is in the most beautiful place. It's very private with no houses nearby. We hired the venue for a bachelorette so the form rooms were perfect for us and the pool and lapa area are so great for entertaining. Stacey was a great host and Daniel was there to help out with everything we needed.

L.Bowes (January 2020)


We had a good time with the family - the place was amazing!

M.Maredi (December 2019)


The spot is very pretty and offers great amenities. Please note there is a 2km dirt road leading to the house which can be challenging to traverse if its been raining. Communication from Stacey was excellent, and the owner of the property very helpful and willing to accommodate our needs. We had a wonderful stay. 

A.Smith (December 2019)


We had an amazing time there. It is so peaceful there.

H. Rippon (November 2019)


We indeed had a great stay. The place is amazing and the scenery is great, we will definitely be coming back. Thank you so much for your assistance, we really had a great time! 

D.Muddaly (October 2019)


We had a lovely stay - thank you so much! Daniel was helpful and kind!

A.Pringle (October 2019)


Thanks for the wonderful weekend - we really enjoyed your place and thanks again to Daniel, his service was outstanding. Please do put in Wi-Fi. 

B. Motaung (October 2019)


I absolutely loved our stay at Jackal Hill and would recommend this as a getaway for anyone in need of a good break! We booked out the lodge as a group of 10 ladies and were amazed by the facilities, cleanliness and amenities. Daniel (the manager) is so helpful and friendly. Can’t wait to go back in Summer and make use of that swimming pool!

S. Sanchez (June 2019) 


I recently stayed at the lovely Jackal Hill in Magaliesburg with a group of my girlfriends, which was booked through UP AND GO. The accommodation was clean, comfortable and just perfect for entertaining, mingling and dancing the night away. Also, a short distance from JHB yet still felt like an amazing getaway. Loved it so much I will definitely go there again. 

S. Evans (June 2019)


We had an absolutely fantastic stay. You have a gem of a place, very good for the soul, the tranquillity was amazing, believe it or not Zero complaints from kids/teens/young adults on being bored, signal etc. they too loved the serenity…. we are definitely coming back!!!

Daniel was amazing as well, checking up to see if we were comfortable and if we had everything we needed…he even came with the tractor to try and bail us out of the mud on the last day…after he had a good giggle beforehand telling us we’ll be calling him when we said goodbye – 5mins later he came down just laughing as he was driving the tractor…that was an epic end to the weekend – memories for years!!
