About Lakesides

Enjoy the splendor of living on Lakeside!

The closest-to-home you are going to be from and at the festival. These most perfectly situated self-catering houses come fully equipped with 2 bedrooms, kitchenette, shower, toilet, and their own inside fireplace all overlooking a magnificent mountain water dam, welcomed (*mostly) by our Family Geese and other fascinating natural wildlife!

Less than 100m from the Tractor service Pick & Drop point, you can look forward to being super comfortable throughout the festival whilst being conveniently a hop skip & jump away from the magic going down in the Enchanted Forest! 🙂

If what you are looking for is green grass with flowing lawns onto the water’s edge + a half drum braai to get the boys going – This chalet is for you!!
