South west of the town of Rustenburg lies the Rustenberg Nature Reserve, which was proclaimed in 1967. It is situated on the northern slopes and summit of the majestic Magaliesberg Mountain.
The vegetation on the summit is extremely lush and varied and the views are spectacular. The Waterkloof River has its source here and runs through a reed basin while nearby are extraordinarily shaped rocks that combine with the lush vegetation to form a natural rock garden.
Game animals thrive in the area, as do birds of many varied species.
