De Hoop Vlei MTB Experience

De Hoop Vlei MTB Experience

De Hoop Collection

Join us at De Hoop and challenge yourself on trails never ridden before, where Eland, Zebra, Bontebok and Ostrich roam free.

The terrain is tough, the trails are raw and rugged, the views are spectacular.

From weathered limestone climbs to custom built singletrack descents, we will take you on an adventure through De Hoop nature reserve to the southern coastal tip - which boasts one of the largest collections of migratory Southern Right whales in the world.

Spend three days with us as you mountain bike this unique unexplored wilderness.
