    Koesterfontein is a family-owned 21 acre farm in the CRADLE OF HUMANKIND, criss-crossed by hiking and biking trails, roaming wild rabbits, guinea fowls and families of cows from the neighboring farms. The property offers a sweeping view over the Magaliesburg Mountains with lovely furnishings and a rain shower as well as an outside shower. Time moves slowly at Koesterfontein, and one of the most gratifying things to do is light a fire, sit on the deck and sip your favourite drink while listening to the peace and quiet. More ambitious visitors might go for a bike ride or hike, perhaps climb the small hill up the property and watch the sun go down. Book early as the Koesterfontein is often reserved for weeks in advance Magaliesburg is a small town situated below the Witwatersrand mountain range in Gauteng, South Africa. The Magaliesberg mountain range is north and visible from town, hence the name "Magaliesburg". Burg is the Afrikaans name for Town whereas Berg is for mountain. The town and surrounds are popular holiday and weekend destinations for the residents of Johannesburg. With more than 100 accommodation venues and a great variety of activities, this small village at the foot of the Magalies Mountain is the ideal escape for city dwellers. Magaliesburg is the home of the oldest mine in Gauteng. At The Blaauwbank mine gold was discovered there more than 100 years ago. Besides tourism, the main income generating activity of Magaliesburg and the surrounding area is agriculture. Beef, Maize, and large scale vegetable farming are most prevalent. The village has become a very attractive option for city dwellers who wish to live closer to nature. Homesteading is popular with many individuals and families going out of their way to be as self-sufficient as they are able. As this is a very difficult goal for most, there are a lot of Magaliesburgers who live in the area but commute to JHB or Pretoria for income generating employment.

      Book an entire 21 hectare farm at these great prices Great for a romantic weekend away or a retreat for friends and family â?¤ Koesterfontein is a family-owned 21 hectare farm, criss-crossed by hiking and biking trails, roaming wild rabbits, guinea fowls and families of cows from the neighbouring farms. The property offers a sweeping view over the Magaliesburg Mountains with lovely furnishings and a rain shower as well as an outside shower.

Book early as the Koesterfontein is often reserved for weeks in advance. The Cradle of Humankind World Heritage Site The Cradle of Humankind is one of eight World Heritage Sites in South Africa, and the only one in Gauteng. It is widely recognised as the place from which all of humankind originated. The 47 000-hectare site has unearthed the best evidence of the complex journey which our species has taken to make us what we are – a place of pilgrimage for all humankind. It is not only a place of ongoing scientific discovery into our origins, but also a place of contemplation – a place that allows us to reflect on who we are, where we come from and where we are going to- The Gauteng Provincial Government is the designated Management Authority responsible for developing and protecting this extraordinary site for posterity. There are 13 excavated sites which have been identified within the area. These have already been internationally-recognised in the World Heritage Site listing, and have now individually been declared as national heritage sites by the South African Heritage Resources Agency (SAHRA). The careful management of these unique sites is a clear priority if the site is to be preserved and sustainably utilised. The world-renowned Sterkfontein Caves is home to the oldest and most continuous paleaontological dig in the world. It is also the site of discovery of the famous pre-human skull affectionately known as “Mrs Ples”, and an almost complete hominid skeleton called “Little Foot”, dated 2.3 and 4.17 million years old respectively. No one knows what still lies hidden in the rocks of the Sterkfontein Caves and other sites. The World Heritage Site status the area now enjoys ensures that what is deep within its core will be protected and explored forever. An amount of R189 million has been invested in roads and bulk infrastructure to develop the site and leverage in private sector investment in tourism development. In October 2003, the Gauteng Provincial Government entered into a contract valued at R163 million with Maropeng a’Afrika Leisure (Pty) Ltd for the construction, design and operation of world-class visitor exhibition and recreational facilities showcasing the site. This Public Private Partnership is the first of its kind, a concession agreement requiring Maropeng a’Afrika Leisure (Pty) Ltd to pay an annual concession fee which government will invest in community benefit projects and in scientific research. The Cradle of Humankind World Heritage Site has become a major international tourism destination with a total of 387 tourism attractions including 91 graded establishments. There are 175 places to stay and 113 restaurants in and around the area to choose from. Seventy Conference venues and 44 wedding and event venues can accommodate from 20 to 800 guests. The attractions directly employ an estimated 7,000 permanent and 2,200 casual employees.
