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