Located on the borders of the Hoopvlei, in the park, not in Bredadorp itself. 25 km of dirtroad, good to do with a VW Polo, but take your time. Cottage with vieuw on the water of the Vlei, be sure of that otherwise you have a look at the empty plain, most of the tome, perhaps a zebra or kudu... More

We stayed for 3 nights in a Vlei cottage which is self catering with 2 bedrooms. It was nicely equipped and very comfortable. Each cottage has its own braii (barbecue). However if you want to self cater then you must bring all the food you need with you (as we did). There is a daily debate about whether you are... More

One of the most beautiful places I have ever seen in South Africa, the beach is so clean and the sand is white. We had the best time and wished we had more days. The cottage was perfect, clean and fully equipped. Sunsets and sunrises are not to be missed ❤️

We spent a couple of nights at the rondavels facing the lake. We were in number 5 with great views and closer to the toilets.The rondavels are simple but very comfortables. Toilets are located outside and having a shower outdoors is a beautiful experience. The Fig Tree Restaurant is really good, the wine list is excellent and Dickson recommended us... More

The De Hoop collection of accommodation is based around an 18th century farmstead. We had a B&B room in the Old Manor House, but there are also many self-catering cottages available. It's located within the De Hoop Nature Reserve, so great scenery and wildlife on the doorstep. The Fig Tree restaurant on-site provided great food (we had dinner and breakfast).... More

We had a wonderful time at De Hoop. The restaurant was excellent and the staff was very friendly, helpful and professional. At night, zebras visited our cottage. We could watch them from very near. We took the bicycles and made a ride through the beautiful De Hoop park. We saw many animals and trained our bodies at the same time.... More

We were in a cottage in the middle of the various accommodations available in De Hoop Village. The place was the first "wild" place in our trip from Cape Town.

Enjoyed a three night stay as a family with young kids. It's a beautiful park, and being alone at Koppie Alleen one sunny morning with a whale playing in the bay was a highlight of our trip. Plenty of baboons, eland, bontebok, zebra and ostrich near the accommodation. Stunning birdlife, and really enjoyed the guided walk with Patrick. We chose... More
