Perfect setting on the De Hoop vlei with 5 star accomodation and service. Lovely restaurant with sumptous meals and friendly waitresses. Lovely photographic opportunities with wildlife such as Cape Mountain zebra and Eland, with prolific birding (Ramsar bird site).More

We're staying for 4 nights in the middle of March. Can you organise a guided tour of the Reserve? We're especially keen on the bird life. 17 or 18 March would be good days for us. Look forward to hearing from you. John Kind.

Do you have fireplaces in the De Hoop cottages? We are keen to visit during winter time, but would like to keep warm too! I'd greatly appreciate your response. Kim
