About 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 built in 1912. 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 and nature-lovers and those who simply appreciate peace and quiet beneath the African skies.
I dreamt of Africa
A cottage beneath the biggest sky of all.
Expansive vlei out front, endless fields behind.
Wild neighbours 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.
