Reviews for Mount Everest Game Farm
Poorly maintained. Not cleaned rooms. Bedding missing. Hangers lying on the floor. Rotting cabins. Not the best view. Rubbish sweeped to the corner without being picked up. Horrible dirt roads. Friendly staff though. Rather give this place a skip - unless you really wanna clean up the lodge's mess yourself on their behalf.
Good views and rooms. However, housekeeping was not upto standard. Roads are also not car friendly.
There was a pile of dirt swept into the corner of the room and left there. The roads are terrible. I do not have a 4x4 and my car took a beating. There were not sheets or pillow cases, no soap, no toilet paper and half the light bulbs were missing.
Quiet setting, could do with a bit of cleanliness and better upkeep.
It's a nice place if u love nature
We stayed at Mount Everest Game farm on the 29th/30th of April 2018. We specifically payed extra for a cabin (Rooibok) so that we could have a warm shower after climbing. The water was ice cold for an evening shower and we phoned the manager who offered us a shower close to reception which we said would be inconvenient for everybody. Nobody even bothered to come and try and resolve the issue and we couldn't shower in the morning either. A friend of ours, who had previously stayed in the same cabin months back, also had no hot water!!We booked a cabin because we have camped there previously and those bathrooms definitely had no warm water. The braai grid also looked like it had last been cleaned a year ago. Terrible service and maintenance. They should warn people before booking.
The last 5km of loose stoned, rippled gravel road was worse than horrible. Even though I was driving a Land Rover 4x4. Imagine a car. The place had game which was basically the only thing that we enjoyed. There are no shops or anything nearby. Reception was always closed the entire weekend and we had no access to any of the facilities that were advertised. We only saw management or any type of staff when they came to make sure we were out before 10am. (R50 p/p penalty for late checkout which was not a problem as for the first time we were all eager to leave that place). Not a single door closed or locked including the bathrooms. Which were in a bad state.
The place is provides peace and tranquillity.. adventurous, wild life and farm life experience especially for my kids.. they really enjoyed it.. if u love nature and a camp out person. Mount everest is the place to be.
Beautiful view and very private! We stayed at the house at the top and it had a fabulous panoramic view of the reserve and beyond. Game roam freely in the reserve so you might have zebras etc by your doorstep. The house we stayed had 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and a loft for additional sleeping space. The living area was a little snug and had a fireplace, big dining table and a decent kitchen. We enjoyed hiking and exploring the area, found an ostrich egg in the wild and animal bones etc. There was also a cave painting on a few rocks.
The sceneries are breathtaking. The atmosphere is tranquil. The chalets are well equipped and beautifully decorated and spotlessly clean. The hosts are friendly and welcoming. Will definately make this a holiday destination not just an overnight.
I went specifically to rock climb which I did. My second favourite thing was to camp. So I had the pleasure of doing both. The best for me was having views of rhino mum & baby. Later when it rained & cleared up we had ostriches wondering around the campsite tweaking off bits of grass.
Nice halfway stop when travelling!
"Lots of potential"
We had a good stay but were disappointed that there was not a games room, DStv, gym, etc, as mentioned on the web page. It appears that this establishment is under new management and are busy doing renovations. We did see alot of game and the scenery is beautiful. We look forward to comming back once the renovations are complete.
