No electricity, no TV, no rush. Just you, your partner and nature.
Agama Cottage is situated on a hilltop with a magnificent view of the Magalies Mountains and Naauwkloof. The inside has wooden floors, a huge bath with a view and a built in fireplace with couch. Agama now has an outside shower with a view of the mountain!
As there is no electricity, hot water is supplied by a solar geyser ( no sun - no hot water). We supply a cooler box with ice, as well as hot water in flasks on request.
Chameleon House is situated 200m from the main farmhouse.
It has a magnificent, panoramic view of farmland, and the perfect seating to enjoy it from; while nursing a sundowner!
The feeling of the cottage is distinctly old fashioned, and it has a peaceful charm all of its own. The main cottage has one double bedroom, a kitchen/dining area and bathroom. There is another bedroom on an outside corridor, with an adult size bunk bed and separate single bed.
For those who want to cook for themselves, this cottage can be self catering OR catered. Try your hand at baking bread in our wood-burning stove, or have a leisurely braai. The cottage is equipped with a gas-fridge, solar water heating and solar lighting.
For children, the accommodation at Chameleon cottage offers the chance to help with farm experiences like gathering eggs, feeding baby goats and ducklings, and jumping on hay bales. Stephen might even be convinced to take them for a spin on the tractor trailer!
The cottages are only serviced on request at an extra cost of R50.00 per occasion.

The outside couch is ideal for lazy sun-downers or simply reading a book in peace. Find the small labyrinth just down the hill, or sit by the outside fire till late at night.
The cottage has solar water heating, and we provide firewood. We can cater for a braai at this cottage during summer months as long as there is low veld-fire risk.

Who would enjoy Dream Lodge?
Gecko & Agama cottages at Dream Lodge are meant for any two people who want to spend some really private and quiet time together. Our service and personal attention is focused on creating a private romantic space for yourself and your partner.
Chameleon cottage can also be a romantic self catering break, or alternatively can provide the opportunity to introduce family or friends to farm living or "homesteading" as it is known world wide. We can provide meals here too of course. Dream Lodge is completely off the electrical grid and we take pride in living and promoting sustainability.

At Dream Lodge we pride ourselves in being simple, sustainable and private.
As such we grow a fair amount of vegetables ourselves and our food contains as little preservatives and additives as is possible on a farm.

We exchange the baskets at the next meal.
Our usual menu is a three course dinner and health breakfast which is included in the rates of Gecko and Agama. Chameleon has an adjustable rate structure as you can choose to cater for yourself.
Our food will change according to the season, and we can adapt our menu to meet your needs. We will always inquire as to your choice of main course. Please let us know of any allergies or aversions!

Greek salad, Tuna salad, Vegetable soup.
Thai or Italian chicken fillet, Moscovy Duck, Prawns, Grass Fed Beef Stew, Vegetarian or Vegan meals.

Fruit salad, Ice cream, Chocolate Mousse, Fruit cake etc.
We serve a health breakfast consisting of the following:
Plunger and instant coffee, tea, juice, milk, toast, jam/honey, muffins, fruit salad, yogurt and meuslie.
When our chickens are willing to cooperate we are also able to serve cheese omelets, but unfortunately that's the only version of egg meal that can travel.
Dream Lodge sources its Grass Fed Beef from Grazers near Magaliesburg. The Moscovy Duck is much healthier than normal duck as it is not fatty. These ducks are pasture raised on the Dream Lodge premises.
