South Africa Tourism Awards

Type: Accommodation – Resort
Category: Unique Experience

Motivation for award: 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.

Region: Western Cape / Overberg, Whale Coast, Garden Route

An idyllic reserve that has been on my bucket list for far too long- from the protected waters that are host to the most amazing diversity of marine life, to the wildlife experiences that can be enjoyed on foot- virtually have imagined it a million times over. Have recommended to many a tourist and revel in their experiences, always knowing one day I will get to soak it into my soul and create memories of this magical untouched corner of our country.

As a multi-return guest, we make sure that we visit De Hoop at least once a year. This is a peaceful place for the heart to rest. Abundant freedom awaits here. From the quiet evenings around your braai fire to the whale watching at Koppie Alleen and the magnificent birding down at the vlei. We will always go back.

Jayson Scheffers – 24.02.2022
This reserve is an absolute MUST visit, I always recommend it to my clients and I have been back quite a few times and can’t wait to go back soon. And STAFf and service is impeccable.

Jevonne Strauss – 24.02.2022
At De Hoop the sweet and invigorating experiences that await, speak to the heart of every naturalist, connoisseur, traveler, holidaymaker and wildlife enthusiast. Embark on a journey to a head full of blue skies, to there where the old moon crumbles up into stars and there where the air is charmed and thin. De Hoop Collection will magnify your emotions, here you will only take memories; here you will only leave footprints.
