De Hoop Nature Reserve, on the Southern Cape coast, is probably most famous for its iconic Whale Trail.
"We srayed 1 night in the delightful vlei suite. It is in a lovely situation with large doors opening onto the reserve. It was sheer luxury. We stayed previously in a self catering cottage so were interested to try the catering... There were plenty walks to do and the road to the other part of the vlei was open. It's a magical place, well worth the 30k dirt road to get there..."
