We stayed one night at De Denne in December 2013. The room was booked for us by the Oudtshoorn Tourist Office who gave us a choice of several options. The farm is about 10 mins away by car from Oudtshoorn. To get there we travelled mostly on metalled roads but the final part was on a gravel road, with some...

I stayed with my mother for one night at the De Denne Country Guest House. The guest house is quite far away from the city of Oudtshoorn and could only be reached by an untarred road. While this is ok with good weather, it could be tricky if it rains. The same could be said for the premises of the...

Dear Guest We do take notice of your complaint. With regards to the gravel road (1.2km) to the Guest House we have done what we can to make it comfortable for our guests. As we are a working ostrich farm this road is not only used by our guests (if this could be possible it would have been great) but...

We stayed here as we were doing a Meerkat adventure tour in Oudtshoorn. Very nice property with lovely views drinking sundowners as the sun goes down. Very friendly staff and a good value evening meal. You can do the Meerkat tour and make it back for Breakfast, They also own the nearby Highgate Ostrich Farm which provides good tours.
