DeKotzenhof, is a beautifully renovated 1906 home with lots of charm & the modern conveniences of today; set in a pretty garden, situated on the main tar road to the little village of Wakkerstroom. Guests can leave ...More their vehicles in the safe parking area & walk to the village center or bird hides. Families can be accommodated in rooms across the passage from each other - no kids under 6 please. One suite is private with mountain view verandah. We cater for birders & birding groups (up to 20 for meals).Dinners on request. A mini-golf course is great for some fun! There is a small deli/farm stall on site where one can purchase cool drinks, sweets, cheeses, meat, venison, ready made meals & homemade jams, sauces & preserves. Interesting products are sourced both locally and abroad. If you are looking for quality, comfortable rooms, personal attention, & delicious food made with fresh & mostly local ingredients then look no further. You can only but leave here relaxed and inspired! Less
