  • Tranquility and peace in the mountains

    Just the most breathtaking views from Mount Everest Guest Farm. Completely immersed in nature with undisturbed panoramic views of the mountains. If you're looking for a getaway with peace and tranquility, I can't recommend Mount Everest Guest Farm enough. The best part: Pet friendly! And also a great mid-way point from Jhb to Dbn. The staff, specifically Maci and Shorty, are incredibly kind and helpful. They went above and... Read this review

  • So privaat as wat jy sal kan kry

    Inboek en uitboek het glad verloop. Die pad lyk goed na Mt. Everest. Baie vriendelike personeel. Die huis is heeltemal privaat en dis 'n wonderlike wegbreek van die gejaagde lewe. Vele wildspesies op die plaas. Ons honde was saam en ek dink hulle het dit nog meer as ons geniet. Die bed het kraakvars, spierwit linne en die plek is baie mooi skoon.

    Le chalet était perdu dans la nature, très bel endroit, très écologique, avec toutes les commodités. Le chalet est magnifique. L'endroit est tellement calme. Nous avons fait une balade dans la propriété le matin et c'était magnifique de se promener entre les antilopes, les zèbres, les gnous ... Magnifique endroit.

  • Great view, Romantic, Quiet, Great value

    Mount Everest is ideal for climbing enthusiasts and hikers. There are no marked trails, but many game paths and dirt roads to explore. It has a wonderfully relaxing farm atmosphere and the chalets are very nice. Whilst it is centrally located, being in the mountains the weather can turn quickly and the wind usually picks up in the afternoon. Even so, we will definitely be back.

    My wife and I stayed over for 1 night. If we knew what we know now our stay would have been much longer. Beautiful surroundings. Close to the mountain, plenty of wild life.

  • Under the watchful eye of the eagle

    Change is good and Mt Everest Game Farm, under new ownership, is making it count. As a group of MTB cyclists, we were looking for a destination close to Johannesburg for long, challenging rides. What we found in Mt Everest was a unique destination that offered up so much more than a typical guest farm. We had beautiful linen, WIFI, a well-equipped kitchen, and privacy that was a pleasure...
