De Windpomp Restaurant
At De Zeekoe their food philosophy is using fresh, local ingredients and preparing them simply delicious and deliciously simple. Fresh herbs are picked daily from their garden and used in most of the dishes they serve. They prepare and produce their own olives and honey (when in season).
On their menu they strive to provide a balanced variety of meals, taking into account the dietary needs of all their guests. Included are gluten free vegetarian options made with superfood, that can replace any type of meat, even on a meat lovers plate! They continually test new recipes and new ideas to keep their menu fresh.
The most popular of their activities they offer are without a doubt the daily wild habituated meerkat tours. These tours, that commence only at sunrise, are dependent on fair weather, since these little creatures will not venture outside their burrows on cold and rainy days.
You are treated to a hot cup of coffee, after which you are issued with a lightweight aluminium chair to sit in while observing the meerkats as they come out of the burrow into the sunshine and then go about their daily routine of foraging and frolicking. These habituated wild animals are never fed or handled by humans.
