About the De Hoop Collection

The De Hoop Collection opened in the De Hoop Nature Reserve in 2008 under the creative and entrepreneurial hands of Carl Trieloff and William Stephens, renowned for their successful Madikwe Game reserve developments. In a spectacular setting, with conservation aspects managed by CapeNature, the reserve offers a wide range of accommodation types designed to suit all budgets. Visitors to the De Hoop Collection enjoy unparalleled peace and tranquillity in what must be one of the Cape’s last unspoiled gems.

At least 260 bird species have been recorded at the reserve; 97 species are water birds, primarily dependent on the Ramsar-designated De Hoop Vlei.
