RECONNECT WITH LIFE
MAGALIES SLEEPY RIVER
CAMPING RESORT IN THE HEART OF THE MAGALIESBERG RANGE
Nestled in the historic Magaliesberg mountain range, and only an hour’s drive from Johannesburg, lies our little paradise.
Magaliesburg, with its multiple restaurants, hiking trails and historical sites, is bound to make your stay eventful – if you choose. For those wanting to enjoy themselves on-site, one can take a stroll by the river, partake in some birdwatching or enjoy our pool which is equipped with two slides.
There are electrical and water points throughout our campsite ( Please bring a long extension cable ). Our little kiosk area is equipped with ice cream, drinks/slushies (alcoholic and non-alcoholic), chips and a warm conversion!
We are a bird sanctuary where kingfishers and hornbills can be spotted frequently. For this reason, we strive to keep our resort a peaceful place where nature can truly flourish.
Please note that we do not offer chalets and you are required to bring your own camping gear!
See you soon!

The staff is amazing 😊 it was clean peaceful and accommodating. I’m definitely coming back.
This is the best park for the nature lover. Night sounds include Spotted Eagle Owls, Barn Owls and Nightjars. You may even get a glimpse of the elusive little bush babies. Daytime birdlife also abounds and include the rare and elusive African Finfoot. We even have at least one fish Eagle that you may hear but find difficult to spot. So if partying and noise is what you want, then drive past. The park also has a handy kiosk, swimming pool, trampolines and river trails.
Playground: There us a playground with ample equipment to keep the little ones and even young teenagers happy
Restrooms: The restrooms are old, but imacculate
Dog-friendliness: Bring your socialised four footed family member to relax with you
Picnic area: The picnic area is at the pool and there are a number of shade thatch umbrellas, tables and braais
Perfect for Nature Lovers
I really enjoyed Sleepy River, it’s my 2nd time there and it won’t be my last…
It’s the perfect getaway for just yourself and hubby or even with the kiddies, oh wait and let’s not forget our little fury friends too
That’s the beauty of Sleepy River, the whole family can enjoy a beautiful, quiet weekend away
Very well maintained grounds, super friendly residents, clean ablution blocks
I will definitely visit Sleepy River more often:)
Thank you all at Sleepy River
The staff is friendly and very helpful. The river is out of this world. The facility is clean and has everything you need. The only thing I would change is the wrist band that you have to keep on.
River is out of this world
Beautiful camping spot. Loved hearing the river and monkeys. The staff are incredibly friendly and helpful. The bathrooms are clean and comfortable. The shop is well stocked for basics. The price is very affordable. I will be back.
I will be back!
2nd time here, and I never get disappointed. The river is an absolute dream in the background while you’re sleeping in your tent. Braais and electricity for each campsite along with ample ablutions and extremely friendly owners/management.
Playground: Nice big pool with waterslides. Also a couple of play areas around the day visitor area.
Restrooms: Very clean and well maintained. Not once did we walk in and find it dirty.
Dog-friendliness: Very dog friendly. Also very friendly owners.
Picnic area: Perfect for a day trip with it only being a short drive from Pretoria. Lots to do if you’re coming to relax and unwind.
