Our travel agent recommended we stayed here on our way east. We stayed one night which was definitely not enough but that was our fault.

The staff were friendly and relaxed, our room was clean, spacious and very comfortable. It was definitely above average. We couldn't eat in that night but the local town is not far away. On our return a large owl was sitting on a car - a very beautiful sight.

Wildlife is all around as you would expect but none of it was intrusive. We stayed in the main part not a cabin on the lake.

Yes we would love to return another day.

We have just returned from a tour of the eastern and western capes but wish we had spent all the time at this farm and not travelled anywhere else.
The log cabin accommodation was in excellent condition clean and tidy with a welcoming decanter of oloruso on the table when we arrived,
The cabins are self catering but as we stayed only a short while we joined several other guests having an evening meal. (cappaccio of kadu with green salad and local cheese,-- butternut squash soup and fresh rolls, -- roast local lamb roast and sweet potato peas, and another veg which i cant remember.followed by a delicious local desert name also not remembered,and coffee, and a bottle of local wine.
The whole meal was excellent.
There is a small swimming pool next to the main building which we would have used but we were too busy sitting on the balcony of our log cabin looking out over the large lake in which we could also have swum but it seemed a pity to spoil the habitat of hundreds of birds who gave us hours of pleasure just watching them and acting as an alarm call in the morning..
Within a few minutes of the farm is an ostrich farm and various other touring spots which are easily accessable.

Definately a return visit is called for, if age permits.

My wife, 9 & 11 year old daughters and I visited Oudtshoorn as part of our trip from Cape Town to Port Liz. So many venues and so many places to see/things to do, the choice is overwhelming.

The decision to stay at Oudtshoorn and De Zeekoe Guest Farm was a resounding success, possibly our fondest memory of South Africa. (Though that's such a hard call)

It would appear that the team here are now making a concerted effort with their customer relationships after some recent negative reviews, we were made to feel like long lost family from start to finish.

We rented one of the 4 waterside cabins, no good if you're looking for a 50" plasma satelite TV and a jacquzzi in your marble bathroom, excellent if you want a clean log cabin on the side of a large pond surrounded by nature.

Hot water, shower room, fridge, drinkable water, air con, comfy beds with insect nets, a balcony overlooking a twitters paradise, a dawn chorus like no other, an unpoluted view of the night sky and a 2 man canoe, what an experience.

The farmhouse itself served us a top notch evening meal and a breakfast to match, all 4 of us are very different in our tastes and none of us were disappointed.

We unfortunately didn't get to use the outdoor pool or the bar but both looked very appealing and welcoming! We did however manage to see the Cango caves (1/2 hour drive), Safari ostrich farm (opposite) and best of all Grant the Meerkat man and the Meerkat magic (on the De Zeekoe Farm-check the meerkatmagic.com website).

We didn't realise the Salzberg pass was so close to the Cango caves and run out of time to explore the 80 km round trip to Prince Albert and back, neither did we spend any time exploring Oudtshoorn town, oh well, we'll just have to save up and return one day.

We spent 2 wonderful days in the guest farm and would clearly go back. The hospitality, friendliness of the staff were great, the unique setting of the lodges at the lake wonderful.

We were welcomed warmly by the manager Cindy, who gave us a great run down of what to see & do in the area. Room was lovely - with a huge fab bath and lovely views over the fields. Breakfast was lovely and although we only stayed one night would definately recommend.
