The Donkey Dairy

Accommodation On ROUTE24 - Discover Your Perfect Stay

Proud Member

The Donkey Dairy is a one of a kind farm, nestled on the slopes of the majestic Magaliesberg. This working donkey farm is home to a wide variety of friendly farm animals. On your arrival you will be greeted by our alpacas, silky chickens, miniature donkeys, miniature pigs, miniature horses, dwarf goats and even miniature cattle.

The kids can enjoy playing with the goats in the jungle gym area as well as bottle feeding them, while parents can enjoy a picnic under the orchard trees.

There is also a family friendly hiking trail of 2 km where you can walk with some of our mountain donkeys. Also pop into our farm shop, where we stock homemade preserves, rusks, sweets and our famous donkey milk soap, face and hand cream. For those who would prefer a longer stay, please enquire about our Donkey Dairy Cottage.

The Donkey Dairy Cottage is both cosy and well-furnished. We provide tea, coffee, milk and home-baked rusks on arrival, as well as a complementary bar of our famous, all natural, Donkey Milk Soap, valued at R130. The cottage has a fully equipped kitchen. It includes a bar fridge/freezer, microwave, toaster, kettle, iron with ironing board, 2 plate stove-oven and enough pots and pans, crockery and cutlery to make your stay with us very comfortable.

There is a braai and boma area for those who prefer to cook under the stars. (A portable braai is also available that can be moved to the undercover parking in rainy conditions.) The bathroom has a basin, shower and toilet, with toilet paper provided. The bedroom is very comfortable in both warm summer weather and chilly winter temperatures with a double bed, sleeper couch (perfect for two kids), linen, towels and a large walk-in closet with plenty of hanging space.

Free Wifi available (which could be limited depending on the weather) and there is a TV in the room with a HDMI cable and Mini Display Port to HDMI Cable for Macs. (No DSTV or Netflix provided).
