about us

Eagles Nest Wedding Venue is situated on the mountain slopes of the Eastern Free State, only 15 minutes away from Clarens, 3 hours from Natal, and 3 and a half hours from Johannesburg. It is not only on the most popular scenic route; it has also transformed into an unrivaled wedding and conference venue.

With commanding 180-degree views across the lawns to the Drakensberg Mountains and beyond, it is a welcoming and warm venue in the heart of the Golden Gate Mountain Range that revels in the signature beauty and space of the countryside.

Eagles Nest has all the qualities one could wish for in the perfect celebration: a beautiful natural setting amidst mountains, a well-appointed function venue with a top-of-the-range PA and sound system, expert function management, and excellent catering.
