About The Langvlei

The Langvlei offers self catering accommodation by the lakes in the Wilderness National Park, Garden Route. With a stunning view of Bo-Langvlei (Long Lake) – a bird sanctuary – our six person country cottage is the ideal site for a relaxing stay.

Self Catering Accommodation

Redesigned to gain maximum value from the quiet valley view, the cottage sleeps six in three bedrooms. Additional sleeping spaces can be arranged in the other buildings on the property and the living room sofa can sleep two.

There is a Fully equipped kitchen, cosy lounge and a dining area offering spectacular views.

The property boasts a quiet view from a lush indigenous garden, unlimited bird watching opportunities, visits by the national park animals and quick access to the surrounding attractions.

Being off the beaten track the property has to source its own brackish water by borehole, though there is ample supply of rainwater for drinking. We would like to share our rustic chic home away from home with you.


The Langvlei is less than 10km from Wilderness town center and about 15 km from Sedgefield, in the middle of the Wilderness National Park. It is minutes from the beach, in proximity to the recreational Island Lake and by the Brown-hooded Kingfisher forested walk. George Airport is 30 minutes drive away.


The Langvlei is perfectly situated in the Wildness National Park to head out and explore all the region has to offer. Day trips are the delight of the region, from the beaches, lakes and lagoons, to the mountains and forests, to the restaurants, cafes and markets there is a lot to do. Make sure you also enjoy a sunrise or moonrise over the lake and all the wonderful sights and sounds surrounding the cottage in nature.
