Our small forest farm is nestled between the Rondevlei and Langvlei lakes and surrounded by the Garden Route National Park on a Ramsar site, a nature and bird-lover’s paradise. Wake up to the call of the nearby African fish eagles and go to bed to the hoot of the owls. If you're lucky you might even spot the famed and elusive Knysna Loerie. Experience tranquility and peace! Rondevlei and Langvlei are part of a series of estuarine lakes that contribute to our Garden Route fame as a favourite South African holiday destination. The Swartvlei, Wilderness, Myoli and Cola beaches are nearby. Nearby towns include Sedgefield, Knysna and George.
We offer a choice of three self-catering accommodations: a fully-equipped cottage (sleeps max 6 adults), a fully-equipped chalet (sleeps max 2 adults plus sleeper couch) and a rustic tree house (sleeps max 2).
We loved staying in this beautiful little cabin in the woods. The place was peaceful and Thandi the border collie was a welcome visitor for our three-year-old who could have thrown pine cones for her all day. The deck, from which to watch the birds and enjoy the wind in the trees, was a wonderful spot. The location was also perfect - a short drive to either Wilderness or Sedgefield. We had a lovely time and would love to return. Wilderness National Park, with it's bird hide overlooking the lake, is right next door - a real bonus. We watched a pied kingfisher catch a fish.
Thank you for your warm welcome, Gail and Koos

A real bird-lovers paradise! We enjoyed our stay at Eagles Call. Gail was a very pleasant and helpful hostess and the house was in a beautiful and peaceful setting. We also saw and heard fish eagles, as well as seeing many others from the stoep of the house. A real bird-lovers paradise!

Dit was meer as wat ons verwag het. Na 'n bietjie gesoek, om die plek te kry, het ons op die mooiste huisie in die mooiste tuintjie in die middel van die bos afgekom. Tuin is baie mooi. Koos en Gail het ons baie vriendelik ontvang. Ons het baie lekker gebly, en ons is daar weg as vriende van oom Koos en sy vrou. Dit was wonderlik om deur die visarende wakker gemaak te word.

Eagles Call - you can really hear it! A very tranquil setting, far from any noise or bustle except for the cry of the fish eagle and many other bird life. The cottage was very well appointed and beautifully decorated. We felt very close to nature and very relaxed, however, shops and beaches were within easy driving distances. My teenagers (who are avid photographer) had many photo opportunities. The hosts were very friendly and hospitable.
