While travelling along the garden route, we stayed one night at the De Zeekoe guest farm, unfortunately just for one night. we've been welcomed warmly, the rooms were much more than we expected (since it was not booked out, we've got an upgrade). We enjoyed a beautiful sunset in the garden of the hotel and have seen the scenery we...

The meerkat tour is a must-do in the area and the guides are extremely knowledgable, experienced and passionate about these little animals; we actually...

Booked this hotel with high expectations (if you look at the price). But when we arrived, we had the feeling that we were not welcome.

This place was a third stop on our road trip. I must say the place is incredible. Very peaceful and made me feel relaxed straight away. We had s great room - it was a honeymoon suite overlooking the garden with a lovely balcony and one of those comfy swing chairs. Relaxing by the pool was great. Overlooking the sunset...

The lady who checked us in appeared to be worse the wear and my son had to finish her sentences as she explained our accommodation and eating arrangements. The cabin was unpleasantly hot and...

We stayed for 2 nights. The farm is very cute and close to places you can explore like the Cango Caves. The meerkat tour is a must do. The farm has a nice pool and a big tub in the bedroom. The view from the rooms is also very nice!!
