Hopewell Lodge, Eastern Cape
Hopewell Lodge is an exclusive lodge nestling on a hillside in a private game reserve just a 40-minute drive from Port Elizabeth and covers 6 600 acres of pristine Eastern Cape thicket.
Hopewell is a 5 star luxury hideaway in a malaria-free coastal valley at the southern edge of the Garden Route. And it provides an ideal base from which to explore the Eastern Cape and Sunshine Coast.
This secluded retreat can be booked on an exclusive basis only, assuring you privacy, exclusivity, and tranquillity.
The Lodge can be booked for a group of two to twelve guests. Booking is for a single party only.
Hopewell offers six spacious, sumptuously furnished units; four are private suites and two are executive suites located in the main lodge. Each of the units has a stone fireplace and a full en-suite bathroom with freestanding bathtub, shower and a second outdoor shower. Three of the private suites offer a private swimming pool.
All the suites are luxuriously appointed and offer superb bushveld views.
A number of species have been reintroduced to Hopewell Private Game Reserve since 2002, when the new owners undertook to restore the balance and biodiversity to this ecosystem. These species include Elephant, Rhino, Hippo, Cheetah, Giraffe, Eland, Waterbuck, Burchell’s Zebra, Kudu, Bontebok, Hartebeest and Mountain Reedbuck. There are a number of small predators in the reserve, including the Caracal, Serval, Honey badger, and Black backed jackal. Birdlife is thriving, and after years of absence, Crowned Eagles have returned to breed in the reserve.
