Magoebaskloof Accommodation

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

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.

Magoebaskloof Accommodation

Magoebaskloof Birders’ Cottages are located on Dragonwyck Farm in the Magoebaskloof (near Haenertsburg) on the edge of the Limpopo Drakensberg escarpment.  Historically the valley was mainly grassland with acacia and kiaat trees dotted about with patches of mist belt forest in ravines and along river lines.  Today, much of the forests remain and the grasslands are mostly planted with avocado, macadamia and bluegums.

The accommodation is accessed by a 2km dirt road. The road is not suitable for very low profile cars. View a section of the road at http://youtu.be/aUvsuYwSYAA The property is usually below the mountain mist yet out of the intense lowveld heat. We can experience very wet conditions in summer.

Dragonwyck Farm is a working farm producing avocados and indigenous plants. We practise natural farming methods and  have many birds and animals coexisting with us on the farm. We do our best to offer our guests peace and quiet and the opportunity to get the most enjoyment from our environment.
