About De Hoop Collection

The De Hoop Collection offers accommodation ranging from camping to more luxurious options set in the magnificent surrounds of the De Hoop Nature Reserve. Few other reserves offer as complete an outdoor experience as De Hoop, with sea, sand dunes, the vlei, a floral sensation of rare fynbos plants, diverse antelope and the Potberg Mountains.

Birdwatchers spend time along the shores of the vlei observing wading birds, while the Potberg Mountains are home to a colony of endangered Cape vultures. Hikers and cyclists have close encounters with bontebok, the Cape mountain zebra, eland and baboons. Activities are diverse and guests can choose between various day walks, the Whale trail, mountain biking along the many gravel roads and scenic game drives. Lazing on the beach and snorkelling in the many turquoise rock pools are great ways to pass the days.

De Hoop offers a holiday experience for any type of traveller, from the backpacker to the guest preferring the finer things in life. A truly memorable getaway awaits.

Our description stated self catering but was only a kettle, toaster and braai so our shopping was futile. However the restaurant is very good and reasonable prices. Just wished we had knowledge of this. The setting is beautiful and saw more wildlife than ever imagined here including a caracal ! Definitely would recommend and return. On warmer days there is a lovely pool and low tide snorkelling etc. But we missed out due to weather....

Pothole hopping.This comes from years of neglect. Shame on De Hoop Collection for not ploughing back some of the millions they are making into the park infrastructure.We won't visit again.Beware: Signposting from Swellendam is non existing. You will land up at the wrong gate. Apparently everyone does but no-one cares.
