De Hoop Nature Reserve

Few other reserves offer as complete an outdoor experience as De Hoop with the sea, sand dunes, the vlei, rare fynbos plants, diverse antelope and the Potberg Mountains, which 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.

De Hoop Nature Reserve Highlights

De Hoop Nature Reserve is situated approximately two and a half hours drive from Cape Town, between Arniston and the Breede River mouth. Also known as the "Jewel of the Western Cape", the Reserve consists of 36 000 hectares of sea, sand dunes and rare fynbos and includes 3 nautical miles of marine protected area, home to 86 mammals, 260 migrant and resident bird species. De Hoop Nature Reserve offers visitors the perfect outdoor experience. De Hoop Nature Reserve forms part of the world's smallest and most threatened plant kingdom - the Cape Floral Kingdom. Fynbos is the dominant vegetation group and is largely confined to nutrient-poor soils in the winter rainfall areas of the Western Cape.
