The drive on the long dirt road to get to DeHoop was so worth the time and energy. We saw Blue Cranes along the way. We were greeted with flamingos. We enjoyed the ostriches with babies, bonteboks, elands and zebras. The wild flowers did not disappoint. We hiked along the coast (Koppie Allen Trailhead) and sat on the dunes and...

What a privilege to visit the 'moon like' area of the Richtersveld. After a few hours on a heavy corrugated road, we arrived at an 'oasis', called Sendelingsdrif, the main camp of the Park. The very friendly staff assisted us with the keys to our very neat and tidy chalets. A quick shower did the trick. Later, with a cold...

We recently had the privilege of driving to De Hoop Campsite which is situated on the Orange River bank in the Richtersveld. The road via Sendlingsdrif was long and dusty and extremely badly corrugated. At times we wondered whether it was worth the hammering our vehicle was taking. Our rather apprehensive feelings about the Richtersveld were further compounded by the...

Atmospheric 'wilderness' camping on the banks of the Orange River. Stayed for 2 nights during a very hot February, the bonus being that we had the place to ourselves.Although the days were hot there was good shade and the nights were very pleasant for sleeping. Good basic ablution blocks. Bring own food, fuel, water, equipment. Apart from scenic arid beauty,...

Really beautiful area. There is no designated campsites you just find a nice spot and unpack. There is water but no drinking water ,no fire wood and no shop. You must go in a 4x4 as the the roads only made for them. Will go back again...when it's cooler.

Camped at deHoop for 6 nights, and it was absolutely amazing. The food is absolutely incredible, and the staff are extremely friendly and helpful! The actual reserve is beautiful, with a lot of wildlife and incredible places to explore. We never had any problems with baboons getting into our tent, and the toilet and shower facilities were above our expectations....

We camped at De Hoop for one night and it was amazing. Be careful when entering the camp from the Sendlingsdrift road (Not the road going to Tatasberg) and try to stay on the higher path away from the river. The path closer to the river is very sandy and lets just say not the best in warm whether if...

Fantastic atmospheric campsite - with a surprising number of nice shady sites right by the edge of the river (which, by the way, makes for a wonderful swim to temper the scorching January heat!). New ablution blocks with proper, clean flush toilets, and nice showers. "Cold" water only - not that you'll notice in the summer months...! Good fishing too.

“Camping near to the shower blocks is good to avoid scary night time trips in the dark! Also the houses they have are amazing, very spacious and all of them well equipped and comfortable.”
