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.

Where to go icon Expert Travel Advice

Our expertise in African travel comes from years of experience travelling the continent, canoeing the rivers, walking the bush trails, and seeing the stars. We've been on the game drives and watched the sunsets, spent nights wrapped up in remote areas, and eaten great food around the fire. Our recommendations come first-hand, and they are your assurance that a safari booked with us is one we know you'll love, because we did.
