Accommodation at Nullarbor
We offer 12 individually decorated and beautifully appointed private wooden/brick cottages to suit your budget and personal taste. All with en-suite bathrooms and some with indoor open fireplaces for chilly romantic evenings. There are 2 Budget Bachelor cottages for the traveler on a budget, which are located apart from the main Nullarbor Village. Even though budget friendly they are still a relaxing oasis. Cottages are designed for two guests sharing and provide lovely views, individual braai areas, lapas and fully equipped kitchens for self-catering purposes. Come experience pure bliss in one of our units and be ready to take on the rat-race again. Become one with nature while de-stressing in a beautiful outdoor shower built from natural rock at selected cottages.
There are safe walking trails along the dam and river and strenuous hiking trails for the more energetic. A well-deserved break from the hustle and bustle awaits with wide open spaces, rolling mountains, superb night skies and the call of the soulful jackal and lonely hoot of the owl.
Access to the venue
Our property is accessed via a 1.5 km sand road which some may consider to be daunting but ongoing maintenance makes it quite navigable for a small car and adds to the ambiance of being away from the hustle of the city and truly out in the country.
Mid-week Day Breaks
If you cannot get away for a weekend, we offer a day-break where you can escape and relax for the day enjoying all our cottages and facilities have to offer. Only valid for Mondays to Thursdays and excluding public holidays – booking is recommended but not essential and payment on arrival in cash is welcome.
The name “Nullarbor” was borrowed from the Australian Nullarbor Plains and means “No Trees” null = zero and arbor = trees. This name is however no longer appropriate as there is an abundance of shrubs, trees and flowers in the beautiful ambling gardens with rolling lawns. We have 3 sparkling pools with shady thatch lapas to relax around shared by the 12 units. All units have their own individual braai area and thatch lapa. Laundry facilities and Cottage cleaners are available, at an extra charge but needs to be arranged prior to arrival.
Slow down and experience true country lifestyle with birds in abundance. Nullarbor is ideal for a city escape, honeymoons, birthdays, anniversaries and naturally – marriage proposals.
We strive to provide our valued guests with high quality, comfortable accommodation in Magaliesburg in a peaceful and tranquil setting. We therefore regret we do not allow children.
Pet Friendly Units
Five of the cottages have fully enclosed garden areas and Nullarbor provides pet owners the opportunity to enjoy their holiday with their lovable pets. We are avid animal lovers and have quite a few of our own but also consider our other guests who do not necessarily want to be disturbed by other people´s pets. Accordingly, this invitation is extended to owners with well-behaved and controllable dogs and subject to conditions which will be sent at time of booking.
