Stunning, clean picturesque accomodation

We arrived late at night by the site of a herd of Widebees. We were welcomed by a beautiful cabin with state of the art appliances, very clean and homely vibe. We were warm. The next morning we were in awe by the scenery. Will definately book again!

Loved the peace and tranquility on the farm. Not only is the farm situated in the perfect place but Arendskop Chalet was just perfect with a picturesque view. It was an awesome weekend with friends. To view the sunrise from our deck was stunning

Super endroit

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.

Eco cabin

What a fantastic place to get away for a bit. Definitely will be back! Thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. The service and communication was excellent. The Eco cabin was very clean and very comfortable. Thank you!

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.

We really enjoyed our stay.

Christmas stay at Mount Everest Guest Farm

As a family we absolutely love Mount Everest. So peaceful. Animals and chalets well looked after. Host is a such a darling. Highly recommend this kind of break away if you want to escape from the city.

Eco Cabin

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.

Eco cabin where we stayed was an awesome experience and we will definitely be back for a longer stay.

For a quiet getaway this is definitely the place to be!!!!

Familie naweek

Het die Paasnaweek van 7/04/‘23 tot 9/04/‘23 by Mount Everest , 3 Chalets geboek om sodoende ons kinders en kleinseuns die mooiste mooi net buite Harrismith te laat beleef. Ons sal altyd weer terug hierna toe. Die akkomodasie is van die beste, die dienste is puik en die personeel is so professioneel en tegemoedkomend!!! Dit is en bly een van my eerste keuses vir n wegbreek naweek. Weereens dankie vir puik diens!!!! Sien jul weer binnekort!!🙏👌🏻

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 to get back to after a long day of training. We mapped out routes that took us on beautiful mountain passes, never seeing another car or shop of any sort. We had the countryside in full Cosmos bloom to ourselves, not to mention the game surrounding us on the guest farm. Everything was quite breathtakingly beautiful. This is a 5-star MTB destination.

Piece of heaven

Dear owners of Mount Everest: What a superb piece of heaven. Arendskop is perfect - lovely accommodation, well equipped, the views just splendid. Thank you for spoiling us. Just a treasure you have here - we'll be back.

This place is amazing. We booked Aarendskop chalet and spent our Christmas at this hidden gem. Aarendskop chalet has recently been renovated and has the most amazing views. If you are looking for total serenity, this is the place to visit.
With a short 2 hour 30 minute drive from Johannesburg this is the perfect weekend escape from the city's hustle and bustle.
This chalet is equiped with a lovely braai which you can open on the inside or the outside, depending on your preference.
The spiral stairs in this cabin is fitted with motion detection lights which automatically switches on when you approach the stairs.
Aarendskop also has WiFi and a TV. However I have to say, with the views and serenity this chalet offers, switching on the TV or making use of the WiFi was not a priority at all.
There are plenty of wildlife on Mount Everest and you are guaranteed to see and hear them.
All chalets are self catering so be sure to take with you everything you'll need for the duration of your stay.
No need to panic should you have forgotten something, Mount Everest is situated 21km outside the town of Harrismith where one can get the things you might have forgotten.
You can be assured of total privacy with no neighbours and no staff disturbing you during your stay (unless otherwise requested).
I will definitely visit this hidden gem again in future. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

Perfect family climbing holiday location with working WiFi

We had a wonderful stay at Mount Everest. It's a beautiful, peaceful location. The climbing is great and lovely hiking and game watching too. The accommodation was spacious, very comfortable and had fantastic views. WiFi worked and TV streaming too. We did an excellent trad multipitch and put up a rope on some easy sports routes for our daughter to toprope. It was really special watching the animals everywhere we went and in the evenings around the braai. Looking forward to our next visit!

Perfect cabin in the mountains

My Everest is our perfect cabin in the mountains! :-) The ideal place to relax in privacy but also hike in raw nature with spectacular views from the top of the koppies. We also brought our mountain bikes and had great rides on the gravel and tar rounds in the area. The cabins are well equipped and are at a very high standard. Friendly assistance from Kobus and when doing the booking. We will definitely be back soon!

Amazing Weekend Away in a Beautiful Setting

Absolutely brilliant time spent in the beautiful Arendskop chalet. Accommodation was clean, comfortable and had absolutely everything we needed to have a lovely time away. Communication from the hosts was also excellent. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and will definitely be back soon.


Beautiful area, very peaceful, climbing superb.
Very impressed with the new ownership, usually camp up there one of the nicest camping areas I know. Last time stayed in a chalet with family. Enjoyed it a lot, climbing, mountain biking, hiking... can't wait to go back!
