Description [ correction ]

Graced with three overlapping flower zones, only 7km from Oudtshoorn, the 2 000 hectare 4-star accredited De Zeekoe Guest Farm/Reserve is part of one of the world's 17 biodiversity hot spots and is malaria free and child friendly. Eleven stylish suites open onto cool verandas set in a lush indigenous garden. Four secluded and well equipped log cabins (built from alien poplar-wood that was removed to establish endemic bush) offer breath taking views across De Zeekoe Lake. Enjoy activities like cycling, walking, canoeing, fishing, birding (162 species) and stargazing in unpolluted African night skies. Spot the resident African Fish Eagle pair, subjects of a Western Cape Raptor Research Program at the University of Cape Town. De Zeekoe offers a unique in the world opportunity to walk with Wild Meerkats (Meerkat adventures) and to be part of the shy 5 experience! Treat yourself to complete relaxation in the saltwater pool before sitting down to exquisite fares of seasonal, organic yield from our own gardens. Our local wine list compliments our delicious four course dinners with only the finest local specialties of ostrich, venison and vegetarian dishes. De Zeekoe Primary school is part of our upliftment program. Opportunities are made available through this modern working farm and guest house to help create jobs for over 20 families. Come home to this tranquil oasis in the heart of the Klein Karoo. May the call of the Fish Eagle and picturesque mountain ranges welcome you. (Updated Jan-16)
