It's always disappointing when expectations are not met as this can lead to disappointment all round. Our agent had booked a luxury river-view room but the room allocated to us was quite small by garden route standards and there was no river to be seen, just a reed bed and a hint or suggestion that there might be a river...

We stayed here during our Garden Route trip, and thoroughly enjoyed it. The staff greeted us warmly and we immediately felt right at home. Our room was well appointed and beautifully furnished with a balcony overlooking the gardens and the reeds of the river. A very comfortable stay indeed. We found the restaurant / dining area a bit sterile and... More

We stayed overnight here. The accommodations are very nice as were the staff and restaurant. We didn't do any of the "activities " listed. They were extra $$ and we didn't have much for extra time. Many who stayed over night then went to the meerkat safari near by.

We visited de zeekoe the weekend of our anniversary and it was really beautiful! The first night my hubby didn't have a great sleep, but they were nice enough to upgrade us the next day Which we appreciated so much, thank you! The breakfast was amazing and the staff really friendly!

We thoroughly enjoyed our experience at De Zeekoe. Beautifully appointed room however our heater wasn't working very efficiently, just enough to take the edge off. And the exhaust fan in the bathroom was slightly rattly. Beautiful restaurant and reception area. Nice and close to other attractions in Oudtshoorn.

We originally had a 2 bedroom cabin booked at De Zeekoe. The property is so beautiful and the cabins are rustic but charming although they are about a 5 minute drive on a dirt road from the main house. We had a lovely view of the lake and were quite comfortable until dusk hit and so did the bugs. It... More

I LOVE this place!!!! It`s been my third time staying at De Zeekoe. This time around I was alone and opted for the self catering log cabins overlooking the dam. Nice and cozy with fireplace and all.Booked breakfast at the restaurant and once again 5 star buffet and friendly staff!!! Can`t wait to go back!!!

After a long drive from Stellenbosch, we had a very warm welcome with a drink from the owner. Although the room was slightly small, bed was great and room had an enormous bath. Evening meal was exceptional (one of the best we had on our trip), but buffet breakfast could have been slightly warmer. Overall 9/10

We only stayed at the Zeekoe farm for one night, as we combined this with the Meerkat viewing the next morning. The kitchen of the resort is small, meaning that you have to order your supper before 5PM (but you can make a reservation for later of course). It might not fit everyone's schedule, but it does ensure food of... More

Great location to base yourself for trips around the Karoo. Accommodation very nice and well appointed although the two uninvited cockroaches were not welcome...had the same issue the last time we stayed here. We only ate breakfast as the evening meal menu was uninspiring and there were much better options in Oudtshoorn. Trip to see the Meerkats, which was one... More
