Excellent overall experience. Lots to do and see - plan daily trips and start early; captivating experiences best enjoyed unhurried. Travel tip: Deflate tyres somewhat in Bredasdorp (and inflate again on the way back home) to limit potentially picking up punctures on the final 50km stretch of gravel road - and inside the reserve.

Fantastic area, beautiful houses, the animals are right outside your door step. They offer walks, mountain biking and more. We did the 6 am bird watch walk and enjoyed it very much. It's an approx 30 min drive by car to the nearest beach but it's worth it, the beaches are breathtaking! The roads to get to the reserve are...

Only here for two nights as part of a self drive garden route holiday. We stayed in one of the Vlei Cottages which was beautiful and very clean and well equipped. Staff all friendly, helpful and well-informed. Great to be up close with ostrich, baboons, bontebok and a plethora of bird varieties. A highlight was a boat trip on The...

We spent two nights in a Rondevaal (excuse spelling) at De Hoop. It was wonderful. If we'd have known how fab this place is we would have booked for longer! This was one of the cheaper accommodation options but it was fabulous. We had our own little outdoor area with bench and braii overlooking the river. The toilet and shower...

The De Hoop Collection was the first stage of our tour through the Cape region. It was easy to find and already on the way to the lodge we stopped our car a couple of time to take pictures and enjoy the nature. The lodge is located in the Western part of the reserve directly at the water. However, its...

It is a long way to go the reserve so we opted to have one night in a cottage. We were geared to do self-catering and that worked well and the cottage was well equipped. It is lovely spot and the drive to the sea to koppie Allen is really worthwhile. Such a lovely sight of the sea as you...

It would be a pity just to come for the day - and a tiresome drive it would be too. We stayed for two nights - just right to get the De Hoop feeling and to do some walking/driving trips. The morning walk in the dunes are definitely worthwhile as we got so much information for a better understanding of...

Cottages are adequately spacious for two but wouldn't like to try it with four people. Good quality f & f, and very well presented. Dinner was fine if not exceptional and service attentive. This was indeed a good visit but perhaps didn't feel as 'special' as expected.
