Langrug Lodge

A perfect peace of Africa

Situated in the Overberg, between Bredasdorp and Struisbaai alongside Soetendalsvlei –

southern Africa’s largest natural body of fresh water – Langrug Lodge is a splendidly secluded and beautifully restored,

self-catering cottage that was originally build in 1912.


I dreamt of Africa.
A cottage beneath the biggest bluest sky of all.
Expansive vlei out front, endless fields behind.
Wild neighbors far too shy to show.

I dreamt of solitude.
A place of perfect quiet.
Of lapping water and timid birds.
Of long, long walks across the veld.

I dreamt of comfort.
Crackling fires and broad, soft sofas.
Of timber table tops, first planed centuries ago.

I dreamt of deep, hot baths.
And still, dark nights.
Where silence lulls and soothes.

I dreamt of all this and now that it’s real,
my dream has somehow changed…

I want the world to know my peace of Africa
but, on the other hand,
I’d like to keep it all to myself.


It is fully-equipped and sleeps six in comfort. The shoreline and grasslands around the vlei host a variety of bird species, small mammals and reptiles, making it a rewarding experience for bird, nature-lovers and those who simply appreciate peace and quiet beneath the African skies.
