About Magoebaskloof Birders Cottages

Magoebaskloof Birders’ Cottages are located on Dragonwyck Farm in the Magoebaskloof on the edge of the Limpopo Drakensberg escarpment. Dragonwyck Farm is a working farm producing avocados and indigenous plants. Various walks on the farm follow the streams and provide access to escarpment forest. Dragonwyk Farm practises natural farming methods, and as a result has many birds and animals coexisting with us on the farm.

Woodbush Forest, one of the premier birding spots in South Africa, is a short drive away. Scenic drives in the district offer excellent bird watching. Fishing and adventure activities are available in the Haenertsburg area. Each cottage is surrounded by indigenous plants, providing the ideal habitat for many birds and animals. We have two self catering cottages.
