A mere three (and a bit) hour drive from Cape Town, Lekkerwater Beach Lodge at De Hoop is the former Camp David of FW de Klerk, and now offers a luxury stay on this pristine six kilometre stretch of private beach. This is some of the best land-based whale watching on the planet, and there's the reserve to explore as well.

it is rare to find a place that is so isolated, yet so entirely nurturing. Perched up on the dunes, this intimate lodge offers a glimpse in to the Indigenous people who once subsisted here on this rich coastline. Only seven units means its ideal for sole-use or book it by the room. Warm hospitality, fresh and delicous meals, plenty of bubbly to enjoy in the wood-fired hot-tub, rock pools to explore and more fynbos to marvel at than you can imagine. Book out the place if you can, bring you friends and family, and immerse yourself in a few days of whales, wild beaches and plenty of special moments - all while not seeing one other person!

Lekkerwater Lodge popped up on my Facebook and we decided to give it a go as we had been wanting to go to the De Hoop Reserve for a long time. Nicely surprised by the nice rooms, comfortable lounge, and great kitchen! We spent 3 nights there, and the food was excellent. The guide, Billy, does a fantastic G&T sundowner down at the beach on the first evening. The whole feel of Lekkerwater is about being at home, and with only 6 units, it is never too busy and you can socialise with the other guests (or not). We also enjoyed the fynbos walk, and the beach walk, which were very informative and while we didn't swim in the sea, we had an extremely relaxing time. This is perfect for a romantic weekend break or for a long weekend, only 3 hours' drive from Cape Town. Be aware though, that the drive includes about 60km of gravel road, most of which is in very good condition. But the last 15km from the De Hoop gate to the lodge's parking lot is not really suitable for low-slung sedans, SUVs would be preferable.

Lekkerwater was an experience of a lifetime and 3 nights was just not enough. We were a group of 10 with exclusive use of the lodge. The staff made us all feel at home and are just simply all fantastic individuals. The marine walk was without a doubt the most fascinating thing I have experienced on this earth and would highly recommend to anyone that visits Lekkerwater. Our guide, Billy, has endless knowledge of the land and seas and is one of the most lekker guys you will meet. The food was superb. Prepared with care and love and always fresh. Breakfast, lunch and dinner was always a highlight. We all had an incredible experience and are very grateful to all the staff that made is so special. We will be back again for sure. Cheers to Lekkerwater and to all of the people involved. Thank you.

We were a group of 10 with exclusive use of the lodge. All the staff were efficient and welcoming. The rooms are spacious, simply luxurious and very comfortable. All thave fabulous views of the sea and surrounding fynbos. Falling asleep and waking up to the sound of the breaking waves was a highlight. The locally sourced and grown food was delicious and prepared with such care. The guided walks with Billy and Matt were excellent - it felt like they really enjoyed sharing their extensive knowledge with us. Thank you to all. We had the best time!
