We stayed at the De Zoeke Guest Farm for 3 nights 9th to 11th July. The Farm has a rural and farming ambience and it is a relaxing place to stay. The rooms are comfortable but like other rooms in SA, they do tend to be cluttered with cushions etc. and have limited natural light.
We had breakfast there 3 times and had 2 evening meals which were all enjoyable.
The staff were very pleasant and most helpful. The highlight of the visit was the dawn visit to see the meerkats which is on part of their farm. It is an early start but well worth the effort.
If you are passing through this part of SA, this is an excellent base for a few days
