Hopewell, A potentially stupendous destination.
Hopewell is potentially a stupendous destination. Accommodation was excellent and luxurious. I feel they tried too hard to provide very fancy food that did not quite come off and this could be improved. They do not have the Big 5 but there is plenty of game to see and the Ranger is excellent. This is a fantastic location for a honeymoon or just a peaceful getaway in the Eastern Cape Bush.

Einfach nur WOW!
Wir hatten einen wunderbaren Aufenthalt in der Safari Lodge mit ausgezeichnetem Service. Sehr professionelles Team, grandioser Ausblick, luxuriöse Unterkunft und tolles Essen. Die Game Drive Touren waren ein unvergessliches Highlight auf unserer Reise. Wir können es zu 100% empfehlen. Einfach perfekt!

Erwartungen wurden voll übertroffen. Einzigartig!!
Es waren die besten zwei Tage die wir in SA hatten. Wir waren die einzigen im Ressort und die Safaris waren einzigartig und wir haben alle Tiere gesehen. Man kann gar nicht beschreiben wie toll es war. Wir würden jederzeit wieder kommen. Das Essen und der Service First Class. Alles wurde nach unseren Wünschen gestaltet. Die Safaris wirklich perfekt. Dinner unter freiem Himmel und Frühstück draußen mit Blick in die Natur. Es ist sehr individuell und ganz persönlich. Egal was man will man bekommt es....Schöner und individueller geht es nicht mehr! Wir können es nzr empfehlen es ist jeden Cent wert.
