Watersports at Lakeside Lodge & Spa 

Lakeside Lodge & Spa offers a great watersports holiday experience, with a range of activities on the lake and nearby coast – as well as angling, nature trails and much more! 5-star luxury accommodation situated on the Swartvlei Lake – a lagoon that stretches over 10.73 km and is blessed with mild weather and temperatures. This part of the country is a paradise for water sports. We have our own jetty and shallow water launching from the slipway. Swing moorings are available for guests to park their dinghies and kayaks. The skipper of the hotel’s Lady Giselle pontoon boat takes guests out on the lagoon to fish.

All of our watersports and facilities are available at no extra cost for guests staying with us at the lodge.
