  • De Zeekoe Guest Farm

     

De Zeekoe Guest Farm is a working farm of 2,000 hectares on the banks of the Olifants River in the Klein Karoo region near Oudtshoorn. Animals here include cattle, sheep, ostriches, springbok and other antelope.

There are luxury ensuite rooms in the main house all of which are well equipped with air conditioning, bar fridge, satellite TV and tea and coffee making facilities. The rooms offer lovely mountain views. There are also self-catering log cabins by the lake, a 5 minute drive from the farmhouse, offering spacious, open plan accommodation and large private decks and providing seclusion and privacy.

Guest activities include private farm tours, small game viewing, fishing, canoeing, mountain biking and hiking. Alternatively guests can take it easy by the swimming pool or wander down to the river for some bird watching.

Local attractions within easy driving distance include the famous Cango Caves, ostrich show farms and the scenic Swartberg Mountain Pass.

Meerkat Adventures is a unique attraction offered at De Zeekoe. The tour lasts between 2 and 3 hours and includes an early start. You meet your guide early in the morning and are taken to the field and seated and given some coffee while you wait. In a little while the meerkats will emerge from their burrows to go about their daily activities.  These habituated wild animals are never fed or handled by humans. Sightings cannot be guaranteed and are weather dependent. Meerkats are less lightly to appear in cloudy or damp weather. However, this is a great way to get close to meerkats in the wild. This tour needs to be booked.

Client Rating for South Africa 5/5 from 74 reviews

Ostrich fillet steak in the restaurant was to die for - best meat dish of our holiday. Meerkat watching at dawn was great but gets fully booked so book ahead if you want to do that activity.
