At Shelter Rock we not only provide exciting adventures on the Magaliesberg. We also provide the opportunity for special interest groups, family groups and organisations to arrange their own functions by making use of our adventures, facilities or restaurant.
All images on this website were recorded on Shelter Rock.
The name Shelter Rock is the name given to a massive boulder which was dislodged from the Magaliesberg cliff face about 10 000 years ago. It can be seen from many kilometers away.
Local people took shelter at the Shelter Rock from the enemy during the Great War of 1898-1903 and during Mozillikazi, of the Zulu's, invasion of the area in 1820.
Our mission is to provide access to the natural beauty of the Magaliesberg while at the same time preserving the natural habitat of the Magaliesberg.
To achieve this:
1980 The Botha family purchased the farm Fouriesrus
2004 Purchased an adjoining farm.
2006 An Environmental Assessment, liquor license and restaurant was approved for the activities on the farm.
2007 Adopted the name Shelter Rock
2008 - 2016 Continuous small improvements for benefit of our guests.
During the summer months it becomes quite hot and we recommend that activities should begin as early as possible.
