About Flamingo Lake

Spoil yourself in this magic getaway! Experience charming, elegant rondavels and log cabins, fully equipped for self-catering inside a private nature reserve. Enjoy abundant birdlife, cross the footbridge to the endless, unspoilt beach and watch spectacular sunsets. You can also expect to see the wild horses and in season flamingos by the hundreds.

Flamingo Lake is a peaceful, private and secure estate with facilities including a swimming pool and tennis courts. This is an ideal spot from which to explore the Overberg and a nature lover's paradise!

Self Catering Accommodation

From your rondavel you can watch the birds on the lagoon, stroll through the estate and cross the romantic footbridge to the long unspoilt beach. You can expect to see the Wild Horses of Sandown Bay, the occasional grysbok or duiker. Francolins and guinea fowl forage around your very own private garden, and in season you might see the flamingoes and pelicans on the lagoon.

A rondavel is a traditional circular African dwelling with a conical thatched roof. Ours are cute and quaint, but bigger than those built by Xhosa people, tiled, not thatched, and much more luxurious!

Our bush cabins are set in a forest of ancient and rare milkwood trees, carefully located so as to avoid damaging the trees. They are picturesque - some are single storey and others are three bedroomed double-storey log cabins. They sleep six and have full kitchens. All are quaint and beautiful. They are a five minute walk to the lake shore.

No two units are the same. Some of our units are cute and cosy, some are spacious, some have views over the lake and others don't. All share the same wonderful natural atmosphere and high standards of furnishing and equipment. The rondavels are spacious and some have lofts.

All cottages / rondavels have:
• A private secluded garden
• Quality assured holiday accommodation
• Fully equipped for self-catering
• Refrigerator and freezer
• Microwave, mini-oven, kettle and toaster
• Elegant and welcoming décor
• Safe parking
• Outdoor furniture, private barbecue, SABC and eTV

Activities and Attractions

The 1000 hectare lake is an estuary at the mouth of the Bot River. It's fairly shallow, and the mouth to the sea is usually closed. Water levels vary, depending on the rainfall. Every few years the mouth breaks open, and the whole lake empties into the sea. It's usually good for boating and swimming, and always beautiful.

There are beaches for swimming, for picnicking, for exploring; but this is a beach for walking, or just sitting and admiring the view. It's a super walking beach - long and level, with mountains looming around the bay, and interesting detours over the dunes into the wetlands beyond. Keep your eyes peeled for interesting footprints - there are quite a few different species of small game leaving their tracks in the sand. And keep an eye on the sea - you are likely to see whales in season.

Verified reviewvery good

Lovely house, comfortable and clean ! It's not huge but perfect for a Holiday. All necessary Equipment is provided, including the braai and grill. The beds are comfortable which is not always the case in rentals. Contact with Lee was easy via email or SMS and she was very welcoming. We received all necessary instructions and she's also created a file in the chalet with all their is too know locally. The chalet has direct view onto the lagoon and you can Watch the birds from the terrace. We even spotted 3 wild horses ! We only stayed 2 nights but had a great time. Thanks Lee
