Nestled between the Rondevlei and Langvlei lakes and surrounded by the Garden Route National Park on a Ramsar site lies this nature and bird lover’s paradise. Wake up to the call of the nearby 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.

This fully-equipped self-catering cottage is on a small farm surrounded by a forest. 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.

The Cottage

We can also offer you an amazing nature experience in our rustic Tree House.  It has one room with two beds and a small equipped kitchen with a hot plate.  It has a separate toilet and basin and an outside shower with warm water if required.  There is a braai area a little away from the tree house where there is no danger of fire.  We supply wood, firelighters and a small weber.  You will awaken to an amazing variety of bird song and a stunning view of the sun rising over the Rondevlei lake.

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.
