“De Hoop is amazingly beautiful”
Reviewed November 30, 2009

De Hoop Nature Reserve should be on your must visit list. Driving down dirt (mud) roads in the rain, crossing the last human powered pontoon ferry for cars in South Africa, we finally arrived at De Hoop and were pleasantly surprised by what we found. De Hoop Collection has been hired to upgrade the food & lodging operations, and they are first class. The nature reserve is vast, magnificent....great flora / fauna, amazing animals many with babies, great whale watching from 270 foot sand dunes along the coast....spectacular in every way. Great place to stop for a few days of nature and relaxation.

De Hoop is fantastic! We stayed in the self catering cottages but took our meals at the Fig Tree Restaurant. The accomodation was lovely: a nicely furnished two bedroom cottage with a fully equipped kitchen, looking out onto the vlei, surrounded by nature, providing total peace and quiet. The service at the resort is excellent as is the food in the restaurant, with local wines to match. The distances on the property are large, it can take ten minutes to drive to the beach where the whales loll about, but hugely worth it! Just the sight of the sand dunes the size of large hills will be a lasting memory, as will the drive into the reserve with baboons playing in the fields and Cape Zebra grazing as we passed. We found plenty to do at De Hoop over our three day stay and plan to return another time.
