We stayed in a "Cabin on the lake", a three minute drive from the main building. I would definitely recommend the cabins if available! Our cabin was so lovely, big and cosy - it was just a lovely experience! It was raining the whole time we stayed in Oudtshoorn - which accordingly to everyone we talked to never happens ;) - but we took some blankets out and sat on our deck, overlooking the lake. Such a serene experience! We had a fireplace in the cabin and lit a fire at night. The dinner at De Zeekoe was the best I've had for months! I could barely speak during dinner, as I was totally absorbed by the food. Maybe ostrich meat is always that good, but I was just blown away. The meerkat-tour is on the farms' premisses, so the staff can help you with reservations and you get a discount for the tour if you stay at De Zeekoe. I would recommend the meerkat experience to anyone, as it is a once in a lifetime encounter with nature! And when in Oudtshoorn - stay at De Zeekoe!
