What a surprise!
We drove from Cape Town to Oudtshoorn for the sole purpose of having breakfast with the meerkats! (I know, some people may think this is crazy) When I booked the room at De Zeekoe's I honestly did not pay much attention to the property.
What a surprise! This is truly an exceptional guest house. It oozes character and charm. The owner and manager did all they could to ensure we were comfortable and welcome. We enjoyed dinner in the restaurant upon our arrival which was without doubt one of the best meals we had while in South Africa.
Our one regret? That we had only one night there.
