About Hopetown Guest Cottage

Hopetown Guest Cottage offers comfortable and private accommodation in three fully equipped cottages on the N12, South Africa.

It is ideally situated about halfway between Johannesburg and Cape Town - just 120km south-west of Kimberley. Hopetown Guest Cottage is situated on the edge of town and easy to find location when entering the town. We offer three different size cottages for couples, small families and large groups. Each fully equipped, private with Wi-Fi, DSTV and BBQ facilities with secure parking behind electric gates.

Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner can be arranged on request.

Hopetown lies at the edge of the Great Karoo on an arid slope leading down to the Orange River, named by the great explorer Colonel Robert Gordon in honour of William Prince of Orange. The Bushmen called this The Great River, ‘Nu Gariep’, as it carries 23% of the total water run -off of South Africa to the sea.

Hopetown serves the surrounding fruit, stock, wheat and potato farms. The Gazella Game Reserve, on the banks of the Orange River, provides sanctuary for gemsbok, eland, kudu and springbok. The ultimate outdoor experience in the vicinity includes white-water rafting, game-viewing, bird-watching and hiking.

Skoon netjiese akkomodasie. Voertuig isveilig gedurende die nag. Vriendelike gasvrou. In die kamer was alles wat jy nodig het vir n vinnige ontbyt voor jy die volgende oggend vertrek. Sal definitief weer daar oorslaap.
