About De Hoop Collection

De Hoop Nature Reserve is a World Heritage Site and offers the finest whale viewing in Southern Africa. The Marine Protected Area, which extends five kilometres out to sea, is one of the largest marine protected areas in Africa, providing a sanctuary for a vast array of marine life.


The De Hoop Collection offers a wide range of accommodation. From affordable self-catering chalets and cottages to five-star fully catered lodges. Crisp linen and towels provided.

Situated in the Overberg region near the southern tip of Africa, this very special reserve is under three hours from Cape Town. It is located near Arniston, Swellendam and the Breede River.

Experience & Explore

Interpretative walks through the fynbos to the rock pools and guided bird walks are just some of the activities available, as well as whale watching and game viewing. The magnificent night skies lend themselves to star and constellation identification.

Four mountain bike trails traverse the reserve allowing one to experience the full biodiversity of De Hoop. The recently introduced walking trail needs to be booked in advance and covers a similar coastline to the well established ‘Whale Trail.’
