Mount Everest Game Farm, known for a time as Eagle Mountain, is a 1 000 hectare, working sheep farm and home to a lively family. If it is a true Free State farm stay you are looking for, you will not be disappointed. Mount Everest is not a resort.

It is centrally situated about halfway between Harrismith and Durban. The farm is a good base to explore the Northern Drakensberg, Midlands Meander, and Boer War Battlefields.

Owners Petrus and Amanda Weyers are ready to welcome you to their haven in the Eastern Freestate.

Mount Everest is also home to more than 22 species of game and other wildlife, including buffalo and the rare lechwe. Game drives are done in our open game drive vehicle, for one hour or more. By prior arrangement, guests can be taken into the buffalo camp when the buffalo are being fed.

Accommodation is provided in rustic, restful wooden chalets or camping at the campsite.

Mount Everest is a very well known and popular rock climbing destination, with more than 200 bolted routes of varying grades. The routes vary from hikes where you can take the kiddies along to very experienced climbs with ropes.
