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.

 Hi We stayed at the sparrow Hawk lodge and it was neat and tidy and mostly back to basics. This a  real farm venture that you would not experience in any of the more upmarket resorts. This brought back a lot of memories ofdays gone bye. This is a place to take stock of life. The Saunders family are very warm and hospitable they get a five star rating

We stayed in the most beautiful Log Cabin and enjoyed every minute of our stay. The views were absolutely breathtaking and the owners made evey effort to make our visit a great one.We will be back to stay during the next Splashy Fen festival for sure.

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...
