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 offers a unique in the world opportunity to walk with Wild Meerkats (Meerkat adventures) and to be part of the shy 5 experience!
