Everything was fantastic - from the pick up at reception to the amazing lodge where we were welcomed to the fantastic rooms and then the fantastic game drives. The food was 5 star cooked an excellent chef and served with flair. I would recommended this game lodge to anyone looking for a 5 star experience

We really enjoyed our stay at Hopewell. It was amazing and unforgettable – everything was perfect! The animal world is fantastic. We had a very experienced and great guide and learned a lot about the animals.

This private game reserve is indeed private. It is exclusively rented to one party. We therefore enjoyed 3 nights in perfect peace and tranquility in the wonderfully decorated Rhino Suite with amazing views of the reserve and a private pool and sundeck. The staff was incredibly attentive and friendly and the food was delicious. The game drives offered a unique...

an excellent game lodge!! I have visited other game lodges; this one excels in its personal touch and the staff being attentive to your every need. it is a game lodge that can only accommodate small groups. the facilities are wonderful and private. the game guides know their animals and surrounding areas very well!! this makes for excellent game viewing.

If you need pampering and solitude - this is it!! Its different because of the basic philosophy of providing a private experience. This privacy includes everything from the beautiful accommodation units, the game drives and meals.

From our fairy-tale wedding to our majestic honeymoon at Hopewell. Hopewell is definitely a hidden gem and I would even go as far to say paradise on earth.
