This historic family farm sits right below the craggy foothills of the Magaliesberg mountain range and is popular with day visitors who come to hike Rustig's famous challenging trails which climb their way up the crags to offer some spectacular views across northern Gauteng. Amenities include a tea room and a large swimming pool that's perfect for doing laps on a hot day as well as a range of accommodation options.

Hiking at Rustig
There's a choice of easier trails ranging from three to five kilometres and a more challenging full day 13 kilometre trail which will take you right up to the top of the mountain. The trails pass through various terrain taking in grasslands, cave entrances and rocky outcrops with rewarding views down into the valley below. Advanced booking is required to ensure a safe number of hikers on the hiking trails. You must book your hike beforehand online here on the Rustig website.

Accommodation at Rustig
Choose from bed and breakfast inside the Cape Dutch style heritage house or rent one of the self-catering properties which include a large old farmhouse with its own stoep (sleeps up to ten in five bedrooms) or the considerably more 'rustic' Stone House which has a bedroom with a double bed and a second bedroom packed with four bunk beds.

There are also two self-catering tents (sleeping four and six) and basic backpacker dormitory accommodation. Serious hikers can also book the overnight hut on the mountain and spend the night while tackling Rustig's 18km hiking trail.
