Mount Park Guest Farm in Dargle

Mount Park Guest Farm is situated in the beautiful upper Dargle region of KwaZulu Natal Midlands at the foot of the Inhlosane Mountain. This 344 hectare working beef farm consists of a diverse combination of grasslands, pastures, over 40 hectares of indigenous forest, wetlands and mountain, providing habitats for a large variety of bird species. One of the forests inhabitants is the rare Tree Hyrax. You may be lucky to hear its distinctive call at night.

We offer self-catering accommodation in a century old farmhouse, Yellowwood Cottage, Rose Cottage, in two Cabins and have camping sites. Simple catering is offered in the Bull & Speir restaurant on request. This is all situated in a large old garden, intersected with small streams and a large old oak tree, ideal for relaxing on a sunny day.

In the garden is a small dam stocked with trout, which is ideal for kids to fish and swim in. Adults are also welcome to throw a line. For the more active there are a number of walks through the forests, up the mountain, down to the vlei or a short stroll to the historic graveyard, in a grove of yellowwood trees. Perhaps an apt way to describe Mount Park is an ‘Olde Worlde’ delight.

Authentic farm feel. Rustic but neat with awesome hosts. Neat ablutions and grassy stands. The Gypsy cottage is an unexpected treat with an amazing private lapa area set into the forest next to an idyllic stream.

Camped here a few years ago. Very nice campsite and ablutions. Well maintained. Affordable. Scenic hikes and great birding. Gets cold in winter so if you camp, take extra blankets.

This was a memorable experience. Sally and Ian are most gracious hosts. The Rose Cottage was a peaceful and private accommodation. Getting up to the sound of bird's. May God bless all who visit.

Super friendly and welcoming. The cabbin number 1 is the furthest and most private, which is great. The cabin and appliances could be improved. Otherwise there are amazing trails. The stream outside the cabin is beautiful and calming
