The Buffelspoort Valley Tourism Association is happy to announce their new online portal, aimed at bringing all stakeholders in the picturesque valley together and ultimately create opportunity for tourism & economic development.
As chair of the association, Hermien van Schalkwyk explains:
“Tourists coming to the picturesque Buffelspoort area want more than just beautiful scenery and pleasant weather! They want to move, run, cycle, they want to experience the culture and deep dive into adventure, they want to collect memories for the rest of they’re lives! Our goal with our new online portal is to create connections between visitors and our community of Valley Insiders, unlocking all the Valley has to offer. And believe me, the Buffelspoort Valley has so much to offer! ”
The launch of the portal comes in stride with the Magaliesberg Biosphere . . .
The Magaliesberg encapsulates the magnificence and passion of our complex country.
Buffelspoort Valley is situated in the Magaliesberg, which is an area of scenic beauty, unique natural features, rich historical, archaeological and cultural value and abundant biodiversity. These features make Buffelspoort Valley particularly valuable for tourism and recreation as well as a focal point for nation-building – whether our ancestry is Tswana, Nguni, Boer or British, we will find roots here. However, these unique features also make it imperative that any development or use of the Magaliesberg & Buffelspoort Valley region must be circumscribed by sound, sustainable management principles and practices.
The Buffelspoort Valley region is close to the Pretoria-Johannesburg conurbation as well as the fast growing Rustenburg. Buffelspoort Valley, is central between attractions like Sun City & Harties and offers unique attractions including Canopy tours, hiking trails, restaurants and so much more.
The Valley offers unique environmental beauty, including the Buffelspoort Dam, and its close proximity to the major urban areas of Gauteng, makes the area very attractive from a tourism, leisure and residential perspective.
The Valley Insiders invite you to come and share in our splendour.
