“Enjoyed everything about De Zeekoe Guest Farm”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 February 2012

We stayed in cabin 7 for two nights. This is the first cabin in the row of cabins that overlook the lake. Although the lake was quite low, the venue was still lovely from our front porch. The cabins are charming and well appointed. The food in the restaurant was very good and the staff were exceptionally friendly and helpful. The meerkats were indeed the hightlight of our trip - don't miss visiting them with Devey! In all, De Zeekoe guest farm was a lovely experience and one that we highly recommend.

We had the pleasure of staying there for 1 night we were absolutely satisfied. The staff is super friendly, the rooms are clean and very nice.
If you stay there, don't forget to enjoy the nothing but fantastic meals in the restaurant.

Our first night was in a standard room, not sure why as booked luxury via Trailfinders but was not aware of the varying standards at first. Kept awake by air con unit which we mentioned next morning and they straight away offered a move to luxury room, which was much more comfortable and appreciated. Dinner in restaurant for me was good ( ostrich) but my wife's spaghetti was terrible and huge. Dessert also averidge . We also felt breakfast was below parr compared to other we have been enjoying so far in SA. The meerkat experience was fantastic, you simply have to do it! All staff in hotel were friendly and efficient . Maybe we had been spoilt and also the weather was not great !

Room Tip: Make sure you get the newer luxury rooms!

If you are staying here, you absolutely have to do the Meerkat tour. It's an early start, but don't let it put you off. The experience is amazing, and it's clear just how passionate the guide is about his family!

The food was also exceptional - definitely the place to try an Ostrich fillet for dinner! Breakfast was also nice, with a good mix of unusual hot options.

In October I was lucky enough to stay at De Zeekoe for 3 nights. We were very impressed by the fantastic room overlooking the reeded riverbed, with it's captivating variety of birdlife. The room itself is beautifull, with a 4-poster bed and the softest linnen immaginable. The attention to detail is amazing and everything one could want is provided. A very tasty breakfast is served and we also enjoyed the dinner we had one of the evenings. The other meals we had in Oudtshoorn, which is only 10 minutes drive away.

Oudtshoorn has a lot to see and do, but for me the Meerkat tour, arranged by De Zeekoe will remain one of the highlights of my travels in SA. To see these amazing creatures in their natural habitat and have the guide explain their complex social interaction, was amazing.

Our thanx to Paula and her friendly team for making our stay so special.

Room Tip: All the rooms overlooking the river are great !

Visiting the Meerkats at dawn (up and out at 04:30!) was the absolute highlight of an overall fantastic holiday to South Africa.

Accommodation was good, enjoyed the swimming pool, food was also good.

Very happy to recommend this Guest Farm.

Room Tip: Occasionally the meerkats can go a-hiding - we booked two nights which we needed, as they had gone m...
