If pressed to single out a highlight I would say it was our...

This private game reserve is indeed private. It is exclusively rented to one party. We therefore enjoyed 3 nights in perfect peace and tranquility in the wonderfully decorated Rhino Suite with amazing views of the reserve and a private pool and sundeck. The staff was incredibly attentive and friendly and the food was delicious. The game drives offered a unique...

an excellent game lodge!! I have visited other game lodges; this one excels in its personal touch and the staff being attentive to your every need. it is a game lodge that can only accommodate small groups. the facilities are wonderful and private. the game guides know their animals and surrounding areas very well!! this makes for excellent game viewing.

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.

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...
