When reserving accommodation with De Zeekoe Guest Farm, the Karoo will never disappoint in presenting it’s beautiful nature to the guests.

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...

My topic for the week is the interesting uses for olives, but firstly I’d like to tell you a little bit more about the history and preparation of this interesting delicacy. The olive originated from the Eastern Mediterranean area. “Domesticated” olives were cultivated at the frontier between Turkey and Syria. Domesticated olives are larger and juicier than the wild varieties. The olive tree symbolises many interesting meanings. Such as peace for the Jews. In the book of Genesis, Noah sent out a white dove from the arc to search for land. It returned with an olive branch which indicated the end...

Now in existence for over 76 years, Zeekoegat Primary School continues to strive to expand its programs and offerings to the community.Our small school has already helped shape and form hundreds of children into young successful adults. Currently with 71 children from grade 1 – 6 & 20 toddlers, we are just too short on finances to offer the necessary resources to accommodate all the underprivileged children. Unfortunately the department of Education provides too little for the school to continue and we lean on the help from our Project Room at Safari & de Zeekoe Guest Farm’s national and international...
