Detailed Self-Drive Itinerary

Day 1-4 :  Self-catering Rondavel at the Opstel Campsite in the De Hoop Nature Reserve

We’re all about lightweight, simplistic accommodation and the Campsite Bungalows at Opstel are exactly that. The bungalows have 2 beds with outdoor shared showers and toilets, much like a regular campsite but with cool accommodation to enjoy. They are ideal for guests looking for simple accommodation with a braai area. While there are no other kitchen facilities on offer, the gear you will find inside our equipped Jimny will fill the gap.

The nature reserve offers a wide variety of activities.

If you are an active traveller you will love the massive variety of trails ranging from 5km to 55km.

Pack a picnic basket and settle down on the dunes or rocks and watch as the whale’s breach in front of you, without the crowds.

Enjoy one of the many guided activities on offer from the De Hoop Collection. Our personal favourite is the Marine Walk which offers insight into the ocean creatures which can be found in the many rock pools scattered along the coast. Guided nature drives, estuary cruises, and a fascinating vulture experience are also on offer.

Departure is on day 4 as arranged with Tread Lite, leaving only your memories behind.
