Hopewell Lodge is an exclusive hideaway where unspoilt nature meets pure African luxury, and guests reconnect with nature at their own pace.

This private game reserve in South Africa’s beautiful Eastern Cape hosts groups of up to 12 guests in stylish, secluded suites with sweeping views over a reclaimed Eden. Waking up to the sounds and sights of the African bush, sundowners above the elephants’ favourite watering hole, relaxing in a secluded private pool overlooking the bush, and sumptuous dinners under the stars provide the memories that linger long after your stay at Hopewell.

Passionate and experienced rangers guide our guests through the rolling landscape, ever willing to stop and discuss plants, insects, birds and game spotted along the way.

Up close and personal interaction with cheetah is a highlight of this unique wildlife experience. Guests are guaranteed to encounter our herd of elephant, along with hippo, giraffe, zebra, antelope and other indigenous species carefully introduced to maintain a balanced eco-system.


Situated in malaria-free coastal valley bushveld, Hopewell is just a 40-minute drive from Port Elizabeth airport and offers the ideal destination for those seeking privacy, exclusivity, tranquility and adventure. A wonderful start or end to your trip along the famous Garden Route.
Guests enjoy exclusive access to the 6600-acre reserve where the owners have made a principled conservation investment in restoring the indigenous East Cape Thicket and natural wildlife.
