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 cottages are accessed by a 2km dirt road. The road is not suitable for very low profile cars. View a section of the road at 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. Each cottage is surrounded by indigenous plants providing the ideal habitat for many birds and animals. There are walks on the farm which follow the streams and provide access to escarpment forest.
