De Hoop Nature Reserve

One of the most beautiful coastal reserves in Africa, De Hoop’s extraordinary beauty and blissful seclusion led ex-President FW de Klerk to choose the location for his ‘Camp David.’ The reserve is also famous for some of the best whale watching on the planet when, from June to November, Southern right whales and their offspring flock here in their hundreds from Antarctica. It’s not simply whales either, and you’ll also spot sizeable pods of dolphin and all sorts of marine life in this, the ultimate location for a fabulous, land-based, marine safari. Lekkerwater, our De Hoop Nature Reserve Lodge, is an intimate, award-winning, home-away-from-home and the ideal place to explore this wild and wonderful corner of South Africa.
