De Zeekoe Guest Farm
The name De Zeekoe, is derived for the Dutch name for the farm, Zeekoegat, which literally means “hippo waterhole” over a century ago, these odd-looking, water-loving creatures used to frequent the riverbed that still runs through the farm to this very day.
Only 7km outside Oudtshoorn, in the Garden Route’s Klein Karoo, surrounded by the famous Swartberg and Outeniqua mountains, is one of the world’s 17 “hot spots” with 3 overlapping flower zones.
Surrounded by a variety of Oudtshoorn Attractions like ostrich farms, longest wine route in the world (R62), Cango Caves, Cango Wildlife Ranch, waterfalls and museums, makes this the ideal destination for a visit or a stay over in the Klein Karoo.
The idyllic setting indeed has something to offer for everyone – from the daring adventure-seekers to those who just yearn for a quiet getaway. This hidden gem has spectacular views with 168 bird species and not the “big 5” but the “shy 5”.
