It was not our first time in South Africa, but the first time we picked de hoop nature reserve as a destination amd we found it to be one of the most wonderful places in the country. We would say there is a guarantee to see wales there, exactely the way the logo shows.... The combination of dunes, sea, animals... More

3 hours from Cape Town makes it an easy getaway for the weekend. Lovely nature reserve. Accommodation was clean and comfortable. Restaurant was outstanding. Road very poor but good to keep the speed limits low. Saw the Cape Griffin vultures in their breeding spot! Stunning beaches and rock pools. Cape clawless otters. Gotta go back. 2 nights was not enough.

We stayed dinner ,bed and breakfast in the stable, very good. The room was clean, nice bathroom, food very good considering the location and distance from civilisation. We were lucky to have Louis as a guide and he is excellent. Do some of the tours they are really cheap and you learn a lot.

We only booked at last minute and took a Dinner, Bed Nd Breakfast option. Really glad we went. Whilst our hire car was covered in mud on arrival (we travelled the gravel roads after rainfall) we arrived to find we had the Bridal Suite - 39 years too late! The accomodation is spread over a wide area with different options... More

Lovely Nature Reserve with excellent accommodation overlooking the lake and coastal bush. The accommodation is to a high standard and is spacious and comfortable. Great area for a braai or BBQ in the evening with plenty of birdlife around the cottages

One of those places that will stand out in our memories of S Africa. The most amazing bird and animal sounds. Looks like Scotland but with sunshine, springbok and Cape zebras - oh and whale watching too. I was surprised by how excited I got when, just walking down from the car park to the beach, I spied a whale... More

I had not heard of De Hoop before my trip to South Africa, but it was one of the many highlights for me in the country. De Hoop offers game viewing, whale watching, hiking, biking, bird watching and other outdoor activities during the day and good food and comfortable accommodations at night. I wanted to see whales, and was originally... More

We were aware before we came to De Hoop that the roads were bad, and had psyched ourselves up for the 35km gravel road to the reserve. What we didn't realise was that there was then another good few kms to the accommodation area, and another 17kms of appalling, pot-hole ridden track to get to the main attraction, the sanddunes...

Dear tokenfemale, Thank you for the feedback. Being a nature reserve gravel roads are used so as to not impose on nature too much, having said that though the roads are regularly maintained by Cape Nature. We are in the process of updating our maps of the reserve. We are glad that you enjoyed your stay and dinner at our... More

De Hoop is a serene and tranquill place to unwind and blend in with nature. Nini and William Stephens, propietors, made our stay so lovely. They and their staff went up and beyond to make sure we enjoyed every aspect of our stay. We felt the reserve is well priced and the cottages were very suitable for our family. The... More

My mum and I recently stayed at De Hoop for a girls getaway over the weekend. It was absolutely fantastic and a complete rejuvenation to the soul. We stayed in the self catering accommodation. The rooms were clean, a cosy fire was lit every evening (it can get really cold there), living areas were large enough to entertain guests and... More
