Land based whale watching

Few other reserves offer as complete an outdoor experience as De Hoop – sea, sand dunes, the vlei, a floral sensation of rare fynbos plants, diverse antelope and the Potberg Mountains. Birders observe wading birds on the shores of the vlei while the Potberg Mountains are home to a colony of endangered Cape vultures. Hikers and cyclists have close-up encounters with bontebok, Cape mountain zebra, eland, baboons and ostrich. Activities are diverse and guests choose between various day walks through the rich fynbos plains or along the deserted coastline, or mountain biking along the many gravel roads or scenic game drives. Lazing on the beach and snorkeling in the many turquoise rock pools is simply another way to pass a rewarding day. Day visitors welcome, and restaurant open daily.

Self-catering or luxury accommodation in one of the most beautiful parts of South Africa. The De Hoop Collection offers a wide range of accommodation. From affordable self-catering chalets to more luxurious self-catering cottages and upmarket fully catered lodges. The De Hoop Collection accommodation has something for everyone, from families traveling on a limited budget, couples seeking a comfortable but affordable breakaway to top-end fully inclusive weddings and honeymoons. Catered and self-catered options are available for most accommodation types.

Important Info About Your Stay:

  • Our stunning coastline, Koppie Alleen, is situated approximately 13km from our accommodation. Those who are fit as fiddles might find a strenuous cycle suitable, alternatively, a drive in your vehicle will take you 25min.
  • The Fig Tree Restaurant is quite the place to be and therefore packed; in high season especially. Please ensure that you book a table for dinner to secure your spot.
  • Our activities are weather and tide dependent and is best booked by yourself a day in advance or once you arrive. We can also book for you well in advance but bear in mind that the weather and tide will have the last say.
  • Cape Nature does not allow driving around on the reserve after sunset. We have permission though for driving between our cottages and restaurant once the sun has set.
  • For guests staying in the Opstal area - Most of our guests opt to walk to the restaurant at night, and what a lovely walk it is! The cottages located the furthest from the restaurant is less than a 10min walk away. Just remember to carry a torch with you! Torches are provided in our suites only and not in self-catering units.
  • The nearest petrol pump is a 15 - 20min drive away and only open Mon - Fri during business hours and until 12h on a Saturday. Best fill up before arrival in the last town you pass - Bredasdorp, Riviersonderend or Swellendam.
  • If you are self-catering, please ensure that you bring all your supplies. Our curio shop sells wood, firelighters, and meat but it really is a gift shop and not a food shop.
