Rustig is a well-established family farm run by the Oosthuizen clan. From its tobacco growing roots in the 1930s, the farm now specialises in cattle and game – and of course proving an idyllic escape from the nearby metropolises of Johannesburg and Pretoria.

With accommodation, amazing hiking trails, lovely picnic spots and a beautiful pool on offer, Rustig is ideal for anyone who needs some time away from the hustle and bustle to just relax in nature. Enjoy the magnificent views from the Magaliesburg mountains and enjoy a hike and braai in the wilderness.

Rustig is situated near Hekpoort on the southern slopes of the Magaliesberg mountain range and has some spectacular views of the surrounding area. We will be doing the Karee trail, which is the longer one, but shorter alternatives are also available. The trails are well marked and maintained.

Accommodation is available. Contact Rustig for more information or visit their website on
