Nestled on the slopes of the majestic Magaliesberg, The Donkey Dairy stands as a unique and charming farm, offering a haven of tranquillity. This working donkey farm is not just a picturesque retreat but a home to a delightful array of friendly farm animals, creating an atmosphere of warmth and joy.

As you step onto our farm, a delightful ensemble of alpacas, silky chickens, miniature donkeys, pigs, horses, goats, and even miniature cattle warmly welcomes you. The enchantment of The Donkey Dairy extends beyond the mere beauty of the landscape; it's an immersive experience where families can engage with farm life in its purest form.

For our younger visitors, the jungle gym area provides a playful haven where they can interact with the goats and even enjoy the unique experience of bottle-feeding them. Parents can relish in a serene picnic under the orchard trees, creating cherished moments amidst the natural beauty.

Embark on a family-friendly hiking trail spanning 2 km, where you can stroll alongside our mountain donkeys, forging a connection with these gentle creatures. Don't forget to explore our farm shop, offering a selection of homemade preserves, rusks, sweets, and our renowned donkey milk soap, face, and hand cream. For those yearning for an extended stay, our Donkey Dairy Cottage beckons.

The Donkey Dairy Cottage is a delightful blend of coziness and thoughtful furnishings, ensuring a comfortable retreat. Upon arrival, guests are greeted with a welcoming supply of tea, coffee, milk, and home-baked rusks. As a special touch, we offer a complimentary bar of our famous all-natural Donkey Milk Soap, valued at R130. The fully equipped kitchen enhances your stay, featuring a bar fridge/freezer, microwave, toaster, kettle, iron with ironing board, 2-plate stove-oven, and an ample supply of pots, pans, crockery, and cutlery.

For those who relish the outdoors, a braai and boma area invite you to cook under the stars. A portable braai is also available for convenient use, even in rainy conditions. The bathroom offers essential amenities, including a basin, shower, and toilet, with toilet paper provided. The bedroom ensures comfort in all seasons, equipped with a double bed, sleeper couch (perfect for two kids), linen, towels, and a spacious walk-in closet with ample hanging space.

Enjoy the convenience of free Wifi (weather-dependent) and a TV in the room, complete with an HDMI cable and Mini Display Port to HDMI Cable for Macs.
