An immersive coastal nature stay in the unforgettable De Hoop Nature Reserve

Escape to Morukuru Family’s coastal accommodation on the De Hoop Nature Reserve for an off-the-grid, solar-powered getaway perfect for all ages. De Hoop is the halfway point between Cape Town and the Garden Route town, Knysna, and the ideal place for whale watching or admiring the incredible Cape Floral Kingdom while hiking, sandboarding or mountain biking. Morukuru Family De Hoop is not only eco-friendly but has also been supporting Cape Nature since 2010, as well as other organisations like Ouplaas Primary, Elim House, and Nuwerus Nasorg. Choose between the private Ocean House or the 5-bedroom Morukuru Beach Lodge that can be booked per suite or on an exclusive-use basis.
