I stayed for two nights whilst travelling along the garden route and Route 66 in October 2006. De Zeekoe is located approx 7km from Oudtshoorn.
We had a log cabin on the edge of the lake, which was approximately 1.5km from the Guest Farm, where breakfast was served. This was not really walkable and took some getting too by car. Enroute there are several Ostrichs dotted around. Despite being away from the main house, the location and scenery was truly fantastic. The cabins themselves were rustic but very comfortable, with wonderful decked areas which went out over the lake. It was quite chilly at night during October, but there was ample bedding to wrap up in.
The sunrise and sunsets were fantastic. There was plenty of bird life around the lake and cabins. Unfortunately this included a duck that used to paddle under out cabin at night making quite a bit of noise!! Can't be helped though, guess its a small price to pay to be in such a beautiful location.
Breakfast was served in the main house, which was very nice and plenty of it.More
