We thoroughly enjoyed our experience at De Zeekoe. Beautifully appointed room however our heater wasn't working very efficiently, just enough to take the edge off. And the exhaust fan in the bathroom was slightly rattly. Beautiful restaurant and reception area. Nice and close to other attractions in Oudtshoorn.

We originally had a 2 bedroom cabin booked at De Zeekoe. The property is so beautiful and the cabins are rustic but charming although they are about a 5 minute drive on a dirt road from the main house. We had a lovely view of the lake and were quite comfortable until dusk hit and so did the bugs. It... More

I LOVE this place!!!! It`s been my third time staying at De Zeekoe. This time around I was alone and opted for the self catering log cabins overlooking the dam. Nice and cozy with fireplace and all.Booked breakfast at the restaurant and once again 5 star buffet and friendly staff!!! Can`t wait to go back!!!

After a long drive from Stellenbosch, we had a very warm welcome with a drink from the owner. Although the room was slightly small, bed was great and room had an enormous bath. Evening meal was exceptional (one of the best we had on our trip), but buffet breakfast could have been slightly warmer. Overall 9/10

We only stayed at the Zeekoe farm for one night, as we combined this with the Meerkat viewing the next morning. The kitchen of the resort is small, meaning that you have to order your supper before 5PM (but you can make a reservation for later of course). It might not fit everyone's schedule, but it does ensure food of... More

Great location to base yourself for trips around the Karoo. Accommodation very nice and well appointed although the two uninvited cockroaches were not welcome...had the same issue the last time we stayed here. We only ate breakfast as the evening meal menu was uninspiring and there were much better options in Oudtshoorn. Trip to see the Meerkats, which was one... More

We only stayed 1 night in the honeymoon suit (a spacious and beautifully decorated room, comfy bed, beautiful bathroom + outdoor shower, balcony), and we had a lovely time. We joined for dinner too (you have to chose your menu by the latests 5pm - we arrived late and they were still able to accommodate us for dinner). The meal... More

Stayed one night in a fabulous lodge on the lake. The farm arranges early morning trips to see the Meerkats and it has plenty of other entertainment options (bikes, canoes etc). Food is very good value for money & the free breakfast is great.

I loved this place - our room was wonderful with a romantic four-poster bed, a very modern bathroom with a bath and a shower and I loved the balcony with its hammock sofa. Staff was very friendly, the breakfast buffet-style had wide variety and dinner was really good - the food was delicious and our waiter was great (John, I... More

What a pleasant surprise this guest farm is! Being a "farm" we did not expect such a luxurious, spacious room with its own balcony and view onto the distant mountain range. The grounds are more than generous, beautifully laid out and include a good sized pool. We went swimming every evening before dinner. Dinner was lovely, especially for us, being... More
