Hopewell Private Game Reserve

Eastern Cape, South Africa

In the heart of the malaria-free Eastern Cape we have discovered a little gem that we are excited to share with you. Perfect for those wanting to reconnect with nature.

With just six suites, Hopewell ensures that guests have a really private experience with exceptional personal care from its staff.  The experienced guides and trackers here have a real passion and pride for what they do and love nothing better than to share their knowledge with their guests.

Wildlife is plentiful in this idyllic landscape and guests are often treated to sightings of elephants, giraffe and cheetah at the watering hole visible from their private decks. The reserve is also part of a cheetah breeding programme designed to improve the gene pool of this almost extinct species.

The main lodge is light and airy and is fantastically cool during the hot summer days while the fireplace is cosy and warm for those cooler winter days.

When it comes to meal times there is an array of food and locations to choose from, from indoor fine dining to a boma under the stars or a romantic meal under the striking lantern-lit septee tree. Staff will assist you with your choice of wine from their well-stocked cellar to enhance the flavours of mouth-watering food sourced from local produce.

There are two suites in the main lodge for guests who prefer not to walk too much. These boast panoramic views over the reserve and the frequently visited watering hole.

For guests who prefer the ultimate in privacy there are four more luxury suites away from the main lodge, three of which have their own private pool.
