Hopewell Private Game Lodge

Overview

Redefining the meaning of ‘private’, Hopewell Lodge is an exclusive hideaway where unspoiled nature meets pure African luxury and guests reconnect with nature at their own pace.

This private game reserve in South Africa’s beautiful malaria-free Eastern Cape hosts up to 12 guests in stylish, secluded suites with sweeping views.

Waking up to the sounds and sights of the African bush, sundowners above the elephants’ favourite watering hole, relaxing in a secluded private swimming pool overlooking the bush, together with sumptuous dinners under the stars, provide the memories that linger long after your stay.

Individual bookings are taken and groups of 8 pax or more qualify for exclusive use.
Guests are guaranteed privacy and they get to set their own schedule for game drives, meals and activities.

The passionate and experienced ranger guides our guests through the rolling landscape, ever willing to stop and discuss plants, insects, birds and game spotted along the way. .

Guests are likely to encounter our herd of elephant along with hippo, hyena, giraffe, zebra, buffalo, cheetah, leopard, antelope and other indigenous species.
Up close and personal interaction with a cheetah is a highlight of this unique wildlife experience.

Abundant bird-life.

Activities

Game drives, in an open safari vehicle, are conducted in the early morning and late afternoon every day in search of animals – both large and small. Experienced, knowledgeable and personable rangers are paired with local trackers, and together they ensure a first-class safari experience. Trackers sit up at the front of the ehicle looking for fresh animal tracks, while rangers skillfully navigate into ravines and through thickets in pursuit of fantastic game sightings. Close encounters are guaranteed, and the animals are not threatened by our presence thanks to our sound conservation management policies. Expect one-of-a-kind photographic pportunities of The Big Five, and much more – including over 300 bird species. A treat for keen birders! Guided walks with an armed ranger may also be arranged. Walks are usually arranged in the early hours during the summer months when temperatures are more moderate. Being on foot affords a unique and altogether different view of the bush (source).
