“Loved De Oude Meul”
Reviewed September 26, 2007

Situated more or less in the middle between the Cango Caves and Oudtshoorn in the lovely Schoemanshoek valley. We had a fabulous stay in one of the luxury suites and we have heard that people come from far and wide to the restaurant on the premises. We had supper there and it serves a wide variety of game like ostrich (of course!), kudu, springbok, etc. There are of course other items on the menu too! The view is to die for, and added the friendly service we will be back!

Not quite what we were expecting, but nonetheless, we were pleasantly surprised! It is a working game farm, with ostriches, and wild game all around you. Rooms are small, but clean. Breakfast is more than enough. Outside of Oudtshoorn (you will need a car to get into town) but very close to Cango Caves (which is a must do). Overall, a great place to stay for the price.
