I was looking for somewhere to take my 3 young kids on safari (aged 7,5 & 3) and struggled to find anywhere that would accept kids that young. Hopewell was recommended to me as it is an exclusive use place therefore are happy to accept children of any age. I work in the African travel industry & have been on...

If you need pampering and solitude - this is it!! Its different because of the basic philosophy of providing a private experience. This privacy includes everything from the beautiful accommodation units, the game drives and meals. I must complement the very friendly staff led by Andrew for making sure that our every need was met. The game drives with Ettienne...

From our fairy-tale wedding to our majestic honeymoon at Hopewell. Hopewell is definitely a hidden gem and I would even go as far to say paradise on earth. All the staff went the extra mile and always made sure we felt right at home throughout our stay. The game drives were amazing and we were very impressed with the knowledge...

We had a fantastic 2 nights at Hopewells, I had high expectations but they were exceeded. It was so special having the whole place just for us.

Having driven past Hopewell many times we finally satisfied our curiosity and spent a short visit march 2015. Amazed how such a jewel in the Eastern cape could have been hidden for so long and yet so close to the R72 just 40 mins from P.E..This privately owned game reserve of around 8000 acres is an absolute jewel, Not cheap...

We spent Christmas 2015 at Hopewell Lodge as a family (2 adults and three teenage children) and had the most amazing time. It really does deliver on exclusivity and personal service and I can't remember the last time that we were so sad to leave a place. The game drives were fantastic, the food amazing, but most of all we...

When they say this reserve is "exclusive", what they mean is that your party will be the only party in the reserve for the entirety of your stay - no matter how big or small your party is. What this means is unparalleled attention, customization, pacing, and quality of experience. Terrific rooms, great chef (really, really excellent chef actually), great...

Fabulous animals, staff and accomodation and the chef is top notch! All animals are virtually guaranteed (and up close and personal!) and the safari drives are as plentiful and long as you wish. 1st class private rooms and pools, open tubs and no expense spare on the little touches that make Hopewell and its customer service stand apart. Echoing another...
