The De Hoop Nature Reserve consists of 34 000 hectares of Fynbos, sand dunes, stunning beaches, vlei westlands and the Potberg Mountains and sits approx. half way along the famous Garden Route. The reserve is home to over 80 different mammals including the rare bonkebok and cape mountain zebra, and although rare, leopard is also found here.
Some of the best land-based whale watching can be found here, as Southern Right Whales come close to the shores of Walker Bay to breed and calf, however, a total of seven whale species have been seen in the bay.
Morukuru Ocean House has four bedrooms, which can sleep up to eight guests, but four children can also be accommodated in bunk beds in the TV/children’s room.
Each master bedroom has a king size bed, air-conditioning, large glass doors with ocean views and large en-suite bathroom boasting luxury bathtubs, double vanity unit and an indoor shower.
The facilities at Morukuru Ocean House include a stunning heated swimming pool, outdoor bath, TV/children’s room, wifi, dining room, fireplaces, wine cellar, library and outdoor dining areas. The second floor boasts the bar and sea view lounge.
This exclusive use villa also includes a full kitchen, private chef, butler and guide.
There is an array of activities open to guests of De Hoop, traversing the reserve on a 4x4 Fynbos safari in the company of an experienced guide is a fabulous way to see the animals and plant life. Sandboarding is so much fun to try or there are a number of guided marine walks and hikes to join.
For those looking for something a little more relaxing, try the spa for a relaxing treatment or massage, wonder down to the beach, take a whale watching flight or simply sit on the viewing deck and enjoy the bird life. *Some activities are at an additional cost and/or are seasonal
