Hartbeespoort Dam / Pretoria / JHB

Hidden among the bushveld of the majestic Magaliesberg Mountains, B’sorah is situated near the Hartbeespoort Dam, less than an hour away from Johannesburg and Pretoria.  Despite being so close, you will find yourself in a totally different world – Africa at its bets.

The 1600-hectare farm consists of dense bush, open grassland and riverine vegetation which runs along streams flowing into the Skeerpoort river.  Game includes kudu, nyala, waterbuck, impala and blesbuck, as well as warthogs, baboons and nocturnal species such as brown hyena and jackal.  Here you can relax in a natural environment where the twitter of birds, the presence of roaming game and the trickle of a gentle stream is all that surrounds you.

B’sorah is home to a luxury safari tented camp and 4×4 campsites.  Surrounded by the historical and natural landmarks of Hartbeespoort and Magaliesberg, our eco-friendly area has to offer, or explore the farm by foot or bicycle and you will find yourself in a nature lover’s paradise where you can simply unwind and relax.

B’sorah caters for hiker’s, trail runners and mountain biking.

The Hiking Trails:

Only available Sundays – Fridays

Opens 07:00 o’clock

  • 4 km
  • 7 km
  • 12 km
4 & 7 km:

All the trails start on the same route and then the 4 km and 7 km turn off onto a shorter trail back to the finish. Both the 4 km and 7 km trail are easy and does not require much fitness.

The trails start through a beautiful forest area, before the 4 km and 7 km split from the 12 km and flow through some rocky outcrops/koppies and then back to the finish.

12 km:

The 12 km trail runs along the Skeerpoort river and a very old canal still in use today, which also includes a designated swimming area in the river. At the point where the Skeerpoort river passes our farm, it is still very clean and safe to enjoy a nice cool down in the river. The trail then continues to its highest point (1420 m), before descending back down to join up with the 7 km trail before reaching the koppies.

Mountain Biking Trails:

Only available Sundays – Fridays

Opens 07:00 o’clock

  • 11 km
  • 18 km
  • 26 km
The Trails:

They are reasonably technical, and the 18 and 26 km requires a good level of fitness as quite a bit of climbing is involved.  A shorter trail more suited for casual riders will also be finished soon.
