Q: Is 'Little Mount Everest' and 'Eagle Mountain' the same place?
I know that the new owners are branding as Eagle Mountain.

AFAIK, yes.

The farm has three mountains: a big lump (Mooihoek), a sculpted buttress (Arendskop) and an indistinct hill (Mount Everest).

- Around the turn of the millenium it was known as Mount Everest.
- New owners around 2008 renamed it to Eagle Mountain lodge (or something similar).
- Changed ownership again in 2012/2013, and reverted to Mount Everest.
(I was there in Dec last year and chatting to the owners - they expressed preference for "Mount Everest".)
