Meerkats, mountains and memorable moments in the Klein Karoo

Looking for a local getaway this December? We’ve got just the spot.

Fancy a fab, four-star getaway on an idyllic guest farm surrounded by the picturesque Swartberg and Outeniqua mountains? Yes? We thought so! 

Set in the Garden Route’s Klein Karoo, just 7 kilometers outside Oudtshoorn is the Cape Country Routes’ property, De Zeekoe Guest Farm. Acknowledged as one of the 17 ‘World Hot Spots’, together with three overlapping flower regions, De Zeekoe’s charm coupled with the unique activities on offer in the area makes this destination a must-have on your travel bucket list. 

Visit the nearby museums to learn about the rich history of the area, take a drive along the longest wine route in the world (R62), discover the incredible Cango Caves and enjoy all the natural beauty of the area – from waterfalls to wildlife ranches and, of course, the ostrich farms.  

After a day of exploring, De Zeekoe Guest Farm will be ready to welcome you to a luxurious stay on the stylish lucerne farm. Choose between a gorgeous room in the main house or a luxe private cottage with its own pool.  

Soak in the spectacular views, try to spot the more than 168 bird species and make sure to go on an adventure to find the Shy 5 – the meerkat, the bat eared fox, the aardvark, porcupine and the aardwolf. Join in a world-unique opportunity to ‘Walk with Wild Meerkats’ – booking in advance is essential – Five Shy Meerkats.
