reedsdellSet in the picturesque Witteberg mountain range, the southwestern spur of the Drakensberg, 1100 ha of pristine mountain terrain and crystal clear streams are home to Reedsdell Country Guest Farm. Holistic farming practices ensure the sustainability of the fragile ecosystems, while Eco-tourism allows this scenic environment to be shared responsibly with one and all.


The Guest farm nestles below the sheer cliffs of the majestic peaks of the Drakensberg among montane grasslands where visitors can hear the gurgle of the Joggem & Edgehill streams in which shy wild trout abide. Spotting the Mountain Reedbuck and Vaal Rhebok is a challenge as their shining coats blend in with the fawn grasslands. Home to the Lammergeier (Bearded Vulture) and the Black Eagle that fly wistfully on the thermals that rise above the dominating Drakensberg peaks. The surrounding valleys and ridges offer spectacular walks through an awe-inspiring landscape with many wildflowers and a variety of birdlife.

Here the Drakensberg changes mood with weather and season, often covered in snow in winter or cascading waterfalls down vertical cliffs inviting a refreshing swim in summer.

Your hosts, Chris & Kath, have been farming for the last 20 years, with 15 years in the hospitality industry. The Isted family has been farming in the district for 6 generations.
