Mount Everest Game Farm, known for a time as Eagle Mountain, is a 1000 hectare,game 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. Mount Everest is not a resort. We are 21 km from Harrismith, on the Verkykerskop road and 17 km form the N3. Accommodation is provided in wooden log cabins or brick with thatch roofs. The chalets can accommodate 4, 6 or 10 guests.
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 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, springbuck, rooihartbees, 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.
Mount Everest is a well know and popular rock climbing spot, with more than 200 bolted routes of varying grades. We are continually upgrading the farm , after it has been quite neglected by previous owners. Luckily, nature upgrades itself and the scenery is always beautiful.
Please note that our rates will increase, starting 1 February 2017.
