Mount Everest Game Farm is a Free State game lodge providing a wildlife experience for tourists visiting Thabo Mofutsanyana.

About Mount Everest Game Farm

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.

Activities and Attractions

Guests can also enjoy rock climbing, mountain biking, hiking, fishing, swimming or drives in open cross-country vehicles to view the more than 22 species of game on the farm. Among the game on the farm are blesbuck, springbuck, zebra, blue wildebeest, black wildebeest, European, deer, "ribbok", waterbuck and also the rare Lechwe. Bushman paintings can also be found in the mountains.

Verified reviewpoor

First impression was a few small fire areas that wasn't cleaned, then a mop lying on the deck in front of the front door as if no one bothered to check if the place was clean before we arrived. Inside wasn't too bad apart from the bath that wasn't clean enough and the main bed's linen which looked like it wasn't changed - duvet was ok. We decided to sleep in the single beds - looked saver. Then, only one wine glass, no opener and overall feeling was the place needed an upgrade - not worth the money. Also, the wife didn't feel to safe - security ? Nice view, friendly people, great water and nice braai wood but it's not enough to go back unfortunately.
