Mount Everest Game Farm, known for a time as Eagle Mountain, is a 1000 hectare, working sheep farm and home to a lively family. If it is a true Free State farm stay you are looking for, we will not disappoint you. If you are looking for a resort, not so much!

We are centrally situated about halfway between Harrismith and Durban, and also a good base to explore the Northern Drakensberg, Midlands Meander and Boer War Battlefields from.

Mount Everest Guest Farm is also home to more than 22 species of game and other wildlife, including buffalo and the rare lechwe. We also have waterbuck, 2 varieties of blesbuck, blue wildebeest and black wildebeest, zebra, ostrich, springbok, European deer as well as the rare ouvolk or sungazer reptile and more. You might even spot a colony of meerkat.

Some bushman paintings are still to be seen on the farm, although they have been washed by time and elements.

There is a restaurant on the farm, but booking is essential. We are in the process of acquiring a liquor licence.

Mount Everest is a well know and popular rock climbing spot, with more than 200 bolted routes of varying grades. There are mountain climbing guide books available at reception for sale or lending.

We are continually upgrading the farm , after it has been quite neglected by previous owners, and we are currently refurbishing the wedding venue. The great variety of facilities and activities make the venue ideal for couples, groups, families or singles, adventure junkies or peace seekers. Conferences, functions and weddings of up to 50 people can be hosted at the farm at this stage. We also offer team building activities by trained instructors for corporate clients, schools, churches or individuals.

Accommodation at Mount Everest Guest Farm:
There are a great variety of accommodation options at Mount Everest. From swiss style, wooden chalets and duplex chalets of brick and thatch, to a camping site for tents and caravans. Eco cabins are chalets without electricity, but they do have all the necessary appliances in gas. Camping cabins are not in the caravan park. They are wooden huts with electricity and water, each with their own bathroom. Because there are no kitchens in these, guests bring their own camping / cooking gear, hence the name camping cabins.

We also offer accommodation for bigger groups like school camps or church camps. The camping cabins and the duplex chalets are converted to group accommodations for camps. We are an ideal venue for conferences and also offer team building activities. All chalets have self-catering facilities ( except for the camping cabins ), although there is a restaurant available. The self-catering chalets are very well equipped with kitchen appliances and utensils. Please note that there are no televisions in any of the chalets. The satellite dishes on the pictures are not operable. There is a TV with DSTV at reception.

All accommodation is self-catering. Pre-cooked frozen meals are for sale for consumption in privacy of your chalet. Ice and wood can be supplied. Even though there are satellite dishes on some of the pictures, DSTV is only provided in the shared lounge. There are no TV`s in any of the rooms.

Very relaxing at campsite and lovely location.
Suggestion for ablution block would be to put two gas geysers piped through a filter directly from storage tank.
Really enjoyed the visit from the Ostrich.
