About De Zeekoe

Idyllic Setting

Oudtshoorn Self Catering and Bed & Breakfast Accommodation.

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.

Situated 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.

De Zeekoe’s unique charm & extraordinary activities attracts guests of a different kind. People from all walks of life visit this stylish lusern farm in search of a unique experience. Guests can choose between various accommodation types, ranging from stylish rooms at the main house to rustic waterfront chalets & luxurious cottages

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”.

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!
