  • Description
  • Facilities
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.

72 Reviews on Eagles' Rock Mountain Retreat

We did enjoy our stay at Eagles Rock, but we just thought it was a bit overpriced. For the amount charged, the chalets should be on a bed and breakfast basis. Our chalet was not very well designed and quite cramped. The main bedroom that was more spacious, was up this steep flight of stairs. The staircase is not suitable for children at all. Otherwise the couple who are managing the place are very friendly. The mountain retreat is in a beautiful setting.

Our hosts were fantastic and friendly. The view from Falcon cottage was straight out of a movie scene: serene, calm, stunning and beautiful. A lovely fireplace to warm up the freezing night air. Atmosphere extremely peaceful exactly as a retreat should be with NO t.v in cottages. Maids are in every morning to do last night's dishes and cleaning of the bathroom. Water is clean n crisp straight from natural springs. Attractions were the nearby dam, trails, horse-riding which we unfortunately never got to experience due to our baby however we made the most by also visit the Cheesery, Dairy, Farm stalls, nearby town and driving all the way up to Drakensberg hotel, not forgetting stopping on d side of road n getn down to the umzimkulu river and splashing, collecting pebbles and taking awesome pics with stunning berg backgrounds! Awesome, just awesome experience!

A great location with beautiful views. Accommodation very clean and adequate with everything one needs for a successful holiday/break away or long weekend. Barry and Philla were very helpful and welcoming.

In self catering places often what makes the stay is the people who run it, and that was definitely the case! Great people, very helpful and full of info on the surrounding area and what activities there are on the go! We stayed in the Kestrel house and we loved it... Very comfortable and a great view! I proposed to my now fiancé at Eagles rock, the location was just so beautiful.. We paddled out to a little picnic spot on their dam! It was too perfect an occasion to pass up... Will definitely be back!! The tubing was also amazing... And something we'll definitely remember!!

Thank you so much we had a wonderful rest at Eagles Rock!! After such a long ride it was very refreshing and the accommodation and views were superb.
