De Hoop is a difficult place to describe, it is quite unique. A small complex of cottages, suites, rondewals and a camp site set in a National Park with amazing wildlife all around you, literally grazing in your garden! We had a young eagle owl perched in a tree overlooking our braii for 2 days, just an incredible sight. It...

Upon arrival we got a big smile (as did all the rest of...

Excellent destination. Dassie Suite is very private with lovely views over the lake. Had 2 excellent evening meals and loads to do during the day. Lots of animals to enjoy. Top African experience not to be missed, even if it is a bit of a mission to get there.

We stayed in the Vlei Suite for four nights in January this year. The suite is huge and has wonderful views over the Vlei. We stayed on a dinner, bed and breakfast basis and found all the food to be lovely. Staff were also excellent although I have to mention Dickson who I felt was particularly good with his very...

De Hoop Collection Nature Reserve is a very beautiful and interesting place to be. There are a lot of flowers in spring. And a lot of different animals. Beautiful dunes too... and the only thing you have to do to see whales in the season (September - November) is to sit on the top of a dune and wait and...

Four friends shared the Melkkamer Manor House of the De Hoop Collection in October 2016. We had previously been to South Africa and our South African travel agent suggested De Hoop as a different experience for us. IT WAS GREAT!!! The manor house was a beautiful old home, done up in comfortable period style. It was a little cool at...

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.
