Mount Everest Game Farm was a pleasure to stay in. The accommodation is lovely, well equipped kitchen, peaceful, quiet and secluded. Perfect for a weekend of relaxing with family. There are no hiking trails, but you can view game, plenty of birds, and expansive views under the mountain more than make up for it.

Lovely secluded chalet, surrounded by wildlife. Perfect if you want to get away for a quite weekend. Chalet well equipped with everything you need. Although there is no electricity the gas equipment is sufficient for all your needs. The only suggestion is to have more lights inside especially in the kitchen and also in the loft room.

A beautiful setting with the mountain behind the cottage and great views over the farm. Lots of farm animals and game to view, great place to walk or mountain bike. Lovely clean mountain air and space. Pet friendly so no one in the family got left out, the dogs were amazed at having horses, zebras, wildebeest and other antelope visiting...

We spent 10 days at Mount Everest Farm. The place was perfect for ower family. So good to be in this quiet place with wild animals around the house. We spend very good time hikking around and climbing on the perfect sandstone of Mount Everest's cliffs and boulders .

It was s disappointing stay and we left after 1 day of 4. Nothing like the website activities, apparently we were misinformed by staff. Worst value for money as there are many better places around to visit.

Highlights were: Fantastic weather: hot days, cool nights, misty mornings and afternoon storms caused by close vicinity of the mountains. An early morning jog took me close to a herd wildebeest and blesbokke - lovely memories. John Wilson

Had a lovely 5 nights here. The game is fantastic - wildebeest, springbok etc. We stayed in Ouhout which is a 6 bed chalet. You are really close to wildlife - a Wildebeest came up to eat grass outside the chalet on the first night. Amanda and Petrus are wonderful hosts - we forgot butter and they sent up some...

Very lovely place, just feel that there is an extreme fly problem, which made it a bit unpleasant. Also at night, if you left a light on for too long, there would be an invasion of bugs. It was a lovely family holiday thank you.
