"I brought 38 US students to South Africa and they cannot speak highly enough of De Oude Meul Country Lodge. Apart from obvious things like cleanliness and comfort (plus Springbok outside the window!), they all felt that the owners went out of their way to make their visitors feel welcome, at home and relaxed. Every need was met with a smile and we would certainly use this as a group stop again."

"Arriving at a road bend in a small valley with the rocks towering around, it seemed improbable that an oasis of heavenly living that is De Oude Meul Country Lodge could await one. But it does, and we were welcomed at the moment of arrival as if family, and with humour and a display of obvious enjoyment at working at this place. Each detour offered quite spectacular scenery to rival and indeed surpass any seen throughout our journey, leaving us with magical memories of an all-to-short stay at and in the vicinity of De Oude Meul. One night cannot do justice to the venue nor to enjoy the breathtaking countryside and rock formations that abound in the area."
