  At De Zeekoe we believe in serving fresh organic herbs and vegetables to our guests and friends. We use Organic gardening as this method of gardening is based on building a healthy, living soil through composting and using supplemental nutrients from naturally occurring deposits. The basic principle is to feed the soil so the soil will feed the plants. Healthy plants are better able to resist pests and disease thus reducing the need for control. If control is needed, cultural and mechanical methods are used first. Naturally derived pesticides are used only as a last resort. With the use of...

The most popular of our activities we offer are without a doubt the daily wild habituated meerkat tours. These tours that commence only at sunrise are dependent on fair weather, since these little creatures will not venture outside their burrows on cold and rainy days. (No tours on rainy days & Christmas day) . Meerkats are part of the so-called Shy 5 which also includes the bat-eared fox, the aardvark, porcupine and aardwolf. The meerkat tours last between 2-3 hours and booking is essential. Upon arrival at the meerkat burrows, guests are treated to a hot cup of coffee, after...

When reserving accommodation with De Zeekoe Guest Farm, the Karoo will never disappoint in presenting it’s beautiful nature to the guests. Yesterday was no exception, with the bright full moon and clear skies.

South Africa’s famous horse endurance event, and eye-watering, bum-numbing ride of over 210 km, takes place annually in Fauresmith in the Southern Free State. Not for me, thanks, I would probably fall off long before the nether regions became even remotely uncomfortable. Still, riders often travel considerable distances to participate in qualifying events for this bone-cruncher, which challenges both horse and rider. One such qualifier is the De Zeekoe Meerkat Challenge, organized by Saddlebag Horse Events on behalf of the Winelands Endurance Club. For those who might be champing at the bit to get the De Zeekoe Meerkat Challenge under their...
