Activities

Game drives, in an open safari vehicle, are conducted in the early morning and late afternoon every day in search of animals – both large and small. Experienced, knowledgeable and personable rangers are paired with local trackers, and together they ensure a first-class safari experience. Trackers sit up at the front of the ehicle looking for fresh animal tracks, while rangers skillfully navigate into ravines and through thickets in pursuit of fantastic game sightings. Close encounters are guaranteed, and the animals are not threatened by our presence thanks to our sound conservation management policies. Expect one-of-a-kind photographic pportunities of The Big Five, and much more – including over 300 bird species. A treat for keen birders! Guided walks with an armed ranger may also be arranged. Walks are usually arranged in the early hours during the summer months when temperatures are more moderate. Being on foot affords a unique and altogether different view of the bush (source).

“Wonderful Experience!”

We recently spent three nights in the Zebra lodge at this amazing game reserve. The accommodation is luxurious, we particularly enjoyed the outside shower. The main lodge is also a lovely building where we enjoyed our delicious meals either inside or on the terrace. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff who went out of their way to make our stay memorable. Special thanks to Miena, our ranger, who took us on the game drives twice a day. Her knowledge of all the animals and plants is exceptional, and she made each game drive special, taking us on different routes each day with her assistant spotter, Pauly. We were lucky to meet Thabo, the cheetah………an unforgettable experience.

“Wow! Wow! Wow!”

Had a 2 night stay in one of the lodges – the whole experience was out of this world.. the staff, accommodation, food and safari trips were amazing and for us a once in a lifetime experience.. as a ‘sort of’ vegetarian John the chef catered for my every need!, Tanya and Pauly were excellent at allowing us the opportunity to see the animals in the reserve – the safari trips felt safe and were amazing. Bonnie the manager was available and so so helpful. We would highly recommend this reserve. Thank you EVERYONE we will always remember our time at Hopewell and your kindness.
