Magoebaskloof Birders’ Cottages are located on Dragonwyck Farm in the Magoebaskloof on the edge of the Limpopo Drakensberg escarpment. Accommodation comprises two self-catering cottages surrounded by indigenous plants, providing the ideal habitat for many birds and animals. The cottages are accessed by a 2 km dirt road. The road is not suitable for low profile cars or drivers who are unaccustomed to dirt roads.

The Trogon Cottage features one bedroom furnished with a double bed and a bathroom consisting of a shower only. Hot water is supplied by a wood-burning stove and solar geyser. The two-bedroom Robin Cottage features one en-suite room consisting of a shower and an outdoor bath and the other has a mezzanine with a double bed and two single beds on the lower level. Linen and towels are provided in both cottages and each unit also has a kitchen equipped with an gas stove, fridge-freezer, microwave, and barbecue facilities. The cottages are no-smoking and smokers are kindly requested to smoke outside. Unfortunately no pets are allowed.

Dragonwyck Farm is a working farm producing avocados, kiwis and indigenous plants, and various walks can be enjoyed on the farm which follow the streams and provide access to escarpment forest. Woodbush Forest, one of the premier birding spots in South Africa, is also a short drive away and there are a number of scenic drives in the district for excellent bird watching opportunities. Fishing and adventure activities can also be participated in in the Haenertsburg area.

We loved the venue and all the waterfalls and walks were really enjoyable. We even saw a honey badger which made our day. So peaceful. Well done to Mark and Bridget

This is a very neat little cottage which is well equipt with everything you need from bedding to a coffee plunger. Tucked away in the beautiful Magoebaskloof pass, this is the perfect setting to get away from the city and explore the surrounding forestry.

What an amazing place, we enjoyed every second! The cottage is very well equipped, we had everything we needed for a comfortable stay. The farm is breathtaking, we especially enjoyed the waterfall in our backyard. We will definitely be coming back for a longer stay!

Well equipped with all you need from a self catering break away - flowers on the table made us feel as if we arrived home (if only home could have been in this beautiful magical place). Cant wait to return back to the Birders' Cottages ASAP!
