Description
The De Hoop Collection offers accommodation ranging from comfortable Self-Catering Cottages and Houses to Luxury Suites and Majestic Manor Houses.

The sandstone buildings on the opposite side of the vlei (wetland) are known as ‘Melkkamer’. This remote and exclusive homestead is a 40 min drive from the Opstal area and boasts 3 units dating from the late 1800’s. There is no electricity and all the units have gas powered appliances, with candlelight and lanterns adding to the romance and charm of this unique area. A generator is available for the Melkkamer Manor House and Melkkamer Foremans Cottage and is switched on at pre-determined times for the convenience of our guests.

All three cottages are fully equipped for self-catering or guests can drive around for dinner to The Fig Tree Restaurant at the Opstal. Please note that booking a table for dinner is essential. For those who prefer to self-cater, kindly ensure that you have adequate supplies, as the nearest towns are an hour’s drive away.

Few other reserves offer as complete an outdoor experience as De Hoop, with sea, sand dunes, the vlei, a floral sensation of rare fynbos plants, diverse antelope and the Potberg Mountains.Birdwatchers spend time along the shores of the vlei observing wading birds, while the Potberg Mountains are home to a colony of endangered Cape vultures.

Hikers and cyclists have close encounters with bontebok, the Cape mountain zebra, eland and baboons. Activities are diverse and guests can choose between various day walks, mountain biking along the many gravel roads and scenic game drives. Lazing on the beach and snorkelling in the many turquoise rock pools are great ways to pass the days.

Come and escape to a bygone era in the peace and tranquillity that is the Melkkamer Homestead.
