A mere three hour drive from Cape Town, in the eastern, most exclusive sector of De Hoop Nature Reserve, is Lekkerwater Beach Lodge at De Hoop. The reserve is undoubtedly one of the most glorious coastal reserves in Africa and the area’s extraordinary beauty and seclusion led ex-President FW de Klerk to choose this very location for his ‘Camp David.’ Today, Lekkerwater Beach Lodge offers a homely and comfortable beach experience, tinged with the history of the area. Each of the seven rooms are located right on a six-kilometre stretch of private beach, complete with stunning rock pools and fish life. Activities-wise, we’ve got walks with experienced naturalists, an array of fynbos to be discovered, a plethora of marine life to be explored, and a rare vulture breeding colony to be spotted.
