About Mount Everest Game Farm
Take the road less travelled … it makes all the difference. Whether you are an adrenalin junkie looking for your next fix, a weary city dweller looking for fresh air and quiet or a traveller on the way somewhere further, we can provide for your needs!
Mount Everest Game Farm is a game reserve of approximately 1000 hectares in the scenic Eastern Free State, just 20 kilometres from Harrismith. There are rolling grassland, rocky mountain cliffs and some wooded areas. The mountains are the inspiration for making Mount Everest a very popular and well known mountain climbing destination.
The farm offers accommodation in caravan and camping sites as well as nine chalets, some of which are set amongst the hilltops to ensure total privacy, while others are in the main camp, providing a place for children to play and roam. Mount Everest is also a working sheep farm and chicken farm and home to a lively family of six.
Each self-catering chalet has a living room, a fully equipped kitchen and bathrooms with showers or baths. The rooms are furnished with bunk beds, single beds and or double beds. Chalets can sleep four people, six people or twelve people. A braai area is also available to guests at most of the sites. Our Kransduif chalet is set high against the Mooihoek Mountain and can only reached by foot. This one is a very romantic honeymoon getaway.
The campground has approximately 20 camping sites, providing water, electricity and very clean, communal bathrooms for him and her. There is also an area where dishes can be cleaned.
For your entertainment, there is a games room fitted with DStv, table tennis, board games and a mini gym equipped with a treadmill, exercise bicycle and strength trainer.
