We stayed over for 2 nights in one of the cabins-on-the-lake. Our expectations were high due to the price we paid... Beautiful sunsets and lovely early mornings with stunning views! The cabin has a very big fire place which we thoroughly enjoyed, however, we did not have enough wood to last the first night and on the second night there were no blitz to ignite the fire, however, we as South Africans made a plan :-) We were 3 adults sharing the cabin, but the cutlery provided was only for 2, however, once again we made a plan... Breakfast was good, Leah who served us at the restaurant was friendly and a sweet-heart! Upon arrival we booked for the Meerkat Adventures, because that was the main reason for choosing De Zeekoe for our stay, but we did not have cash with us and was charged an extra R100.00 per head for the Meerkat tour due to the fact that we didn't pay for the tour in cash. We as South Africans don't travel with cash, we prefer paying for goods either with a debit, cheque or credit card. De Zeekoe made it clear, even though their terms and conditions state that you will be charged R100.00 extra if you pay with a credit card, that we have to pay the R100.00 extra per head even though we were payig with a debit/cheque card. Samantha at reception explained it's for their banking costs. We will return for the Meerkat Adventures for sure, Devey and his team were GREAT!
