Few other reserves offer as complete an outdoor experience as De Hoop – sea, sand dunes, the vlei, a floral sensation of rare fynbos plants, diverse antelope and the Potberg Mountains.
Birders observe wading birds on the shores of the vlei (a shallow natural lake) while the Potberg Mountains are home to a colony of endangered Cape vultures. Hikers have close-up encounters with bontebok, Cape mountain zebra, eland, baboons and ostrich.
De Hoop is part of a World Heritage Site.
The De Hoop Trail allows you to experience and understand the diversity and uniqueness of the biozones as you walk with an experienced guide.
It is a rich encounter with this natural jewel… from experiencing the vlei to watching whales in the marine protected waters, from rich fynbos plains to deserted coastline.
The trail covers 38kms over 4 days. At night you have the comfort of the De Mond Villa, right next to a vlei teeming with birdlife.
Your snacks, drinks and meals are catered for, so your only task is to enjoy the hike and relax with a drink and delicious meal at night. As the expression goes… it is tough in Africa!
