Madala & Magogo

The ‘Madala’ and ‘Magogo’ Banquet Hall sets a new standard for conferencing in the Waterberg area. The hotel’s close-knit staff uses these affectionate names to refer to the parents of Shangri-La owner Johan Jansen van Vuuren. Mrs Anndeline Jansen van Vuuren, or Magogo, still work in this proud family-owned business. (‘Madala’ and ‘Magogo’ mean ‘grandfather’ and ‘grandmother in Zulu and Xhosa.)

This impressive 240sq meter hall boasts a large veranda, wooden floors, imposing chandeliers, luxurious bathrooms and high quality sound equipment. With its wooden stacking doors, the centre can be utilized as one large venue or divided into two smaller conference rooms.


This thatch-roofed conference venue with its rustic wooden beams, colourful paintings and outer wooden doors opens onto a landscaped Bushveld garden. Doors on the opposite side conveniently open onto the roofed Kraal area where delegates can enjoy lunches and tea breaks. Indaba seats 80 delegates. Situated next to the Indaba room, the cosy thatched Kgotla room also leads out onto the Kraal area. This intimate venue is perfect for smaller workshops, seminars or conference dining and is the ideal breakaway room.


Adjoining the main building complex is the Boardroom, a small welcoming venue with beautiful antique furniture that leads out onto the patio and swimming pool area. The patio is ideal for tea breaks while the pool terrace provides a relaxing space for lunches. The boardroom seats 90 delegates.
