About Eagles' Rock Mountain Retreat

The Saunders family welcomes you to Eagles’ Rock, our beautiful piece of God’s creation set in the magnificent Southern Drakensberg Mountains near Underberg and Himeville. We are only 7.7 km out of Underberg on the Drakensberg Gardens Road.

Eagles’ Rock is spectacularly positioned on a mountain plateau overlooking the Umzimkulu river and farmlands with the Giants Cup flanked by the mighty Hodgeson’s peaks in the background. Enjoy the tranquility of our 25 acres of land, with pure spring water and lovely views. Take the Duiker, Thimble or Kingfisher trail, or spend a day hiking in the berg. Birdwatch and add to the checklist of over 100 bird species. Cast a fly into our well stocked trout dams. Swim in the river, the dams or filtered splash pool. Canoe, paddle ski or row. Tube the river, ride horses, visit San rock art sites, take a 4X4 trip up Sani Pass or simply relax. The options and possibilities here are endless.

Enjoy winter evenings in front of a cosy log fire. All cottages are comfortably furnished, fully equipped, and serviced from Monday to Saturday.

It would be nice to have a TV in the lounge area.I don't think our chalet was clean before we could arrive, there was a lot of spiders webs and lady birds (those small round inserts). I couldn't sleep the 1st night.Otherwise a very friendly services from the owners.

We arrived and were greeted by very friendly and hospitable owners/managers and a gorgeous and friendly kitty.Our stay was lovely - cottage was cosy and deliciously warm when we got the fire going. Just sad we didn't get any snow :( - maybe next time! :)
