                                          Thanks for a very comfortable stay in Oudtshoorn. Did not expect such a setting in this area. We enjoyed the atmosphere where we could relax! The trip to the meerkats was something very special. Thanks for the booking to the staff of De Zeekoe. Food was good, a very good place to stay!

                                          I really enjoyed my stay, it was pleasant to stay at the De Zeekoe Guest Farm. The service was very good and I did not have any problems.

                                          We had a lovely stay at the De Zeekoe Guest Farm. Friendly staff and the rooms were really luxurious and well equipped. We were however disappointed by the fact that there was only SABC 1 and 2 in the rooms and that in the main lounge there was a very limited satellite package. In addition we felt that the dinner was over priced for what we got and the fact that we needed to order dinner when we checked in was also not ideal.

                                          We stayed at the cottage for 2 nights. The location is beautiful. Not for people with problems with spiders. You are in nature.
