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.

                                      Stunning view, clean, everything you need. Loved it.

                                      My stay at Eagles Rock Mountain retreat was very memorable. The large cottage catered well for our big group. The views are stunning, as well as the thunderstorms. Enjoyed a day at the dam as well. Direct driveway access to the cottage would have been preferred.

                                      We had an awesome weekend in Underberg, we were there for the Sani Stagger Race. Our accomodation was great value for money, although it was cold on Saturday the place had a fire place so that kept us warm. This is a great place to be away from busy life of a city and connect with nature.

                                      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.

                                      It was amazing staying here, the scenery and accommodation was so magical. It honestly felt like we were in another world! I would highly recommend a visit.
