Experiences

At Hopewell, the choice is yours – 6600 acres of unspoilt, malaria-free indigenous bush to explore at your leisure. Game drives are arranged at times that suit you, as often as you wish. Amidst the spectacular bush scenery you’re likely to see elephant, giraffe, hippo, zebra, cheetah and a variety of antelope and other indigenous species. Interaction with our cheetah tops off this exclusive experience.

Take in the abundant bird-life from the three hides situated around the reserve, or watch the elephants at play in the watering hole from the deck of the main lodge. Relax in your suite’s private pool and enjoy our chef’s delicious cuisine prepared according to your needs.

Call on our friendly and knowledgeable staff to assist with planning your activities – from beauty and massage treatments to outdoor adventures. They’ll assist with bookings, transport arrangements and advice on the best options to suit individuals, families or groups.
