Fodor's Review

The Maropeng Hotel offers peace and tranquility with magnificent views of the Magaliesberg and Witwatersberg mountain ranges and is just an hour and a half from Johannesburg. Rooms are beautifully decorated in warm, earthy tones that reflect the African setting, and every room has a small outdoor space where you can watch the sun set while sipping delicious cocktails. There is plenty to do in the area: the Maropeng Visitor Centre is a short walk from the hotel, the Sterkfontein

Caves are just a few minutes' drive away, and for those looking to unwind, the deck and pool are the perfect spot to relax. Don't miss the once-per-month stargazing evening with an astronomer if the dates work out. The restaurant's tasty South African food might include roasted meat (lamb, beef, braaied chops and pap, curried chicken) with fresh-cooked veggies, such as pumpkin and roast potatoes.
