We were hosted by Paula for two nights at De Zeekoe while building a small mountain bike track for the local Zeekoegators - a community school in the area also supported by De Zeekoe. Firstly, we were spoiled rotten and privileged to be hosted at this amazing "secret getaway" offered to us during our stay. Secondly, we were impressed by... More

We were not sure what this farm would be like as it is so reasonably priced, FOR AUSSIE DOLLAR, but it was fabulous. We stayed in an eco cabin and it was wonderful. Had a view over the lake and mountains, huge log fire, everything you need and more. No TV so very peaceful. For a basic wood cabin it... More

While travelling along the garden route, we stayed two nights at the De Zeekoe. Room 19 was lovely with views across the pool and fabulous the savannah. There wasn’t alot of hanging space or drawer space but sufficient for a short stay. The shower-room was super with lovely big walk in shower and Jack and Jill basins. On our second... More

When visiting Oudtshoorn we decided to stay at the Zeekoe mainly because my wife wanted to do the Meerkat tour. Very very nice rooms with excellent beds and a very good airconditioning. Perfect bathroom with big showerhead .Very quiet in the night . Great pool and many sunbeds with or without shadow . Parking was just outside our room .... More

Sadly we only stayed one night. This is more like a small boutique hotel. Our room was I believe recently constructed and was beautiful. The best we had in South Africa with luxurious bathroom although just with shower - no bath. Lovely grounds to lie out in with sunloungers, umbrellas/gazebos for shade and great views of the mountains. We had... More

I have stayed at De Zeekoe Farm for three years in a row. I strongly recommend the bungalows located along the ponds. They are very well appointed and have a kitchen. Impeccably clean, rustic, and very comfortable. Dinner is served in an elegant room with beautiful views of the countryside. Do not miss the meerkats. Since the number of guests... More

A number positives but outweighed by the negatives. Nice property with lovely grounds but based at the edge of nature reserve be prepared for the flies & insects as well as the bites. Wireless connection almost impossible. On the food front, we have been spoiled with excellent meal after meal during our holiday but we came down to earth with... More

Very good room and service. Dinner was excellent, having the ostrich fillet and cooked to perfection. Easy enough to find if driving and close to other activities. It is a working farm and some of the machinery starts very early, OK if you are going to see the meerkats at 5am. A little perfunctory but well worth the visit. The... More

I travelled to Oudtshoorn to photograph meerkats and was recommended De Zeekoe by some colleagues. I must say that this is quite simply one of the best establishments i have come across in a long time. The rooms and communal areas were immaculate, the staff enchanting and very helpful, the cocktails most delicious and the food equally so. De Zeekoe... More
