The Opstal: picture gallery


The Opstal is the only accommodation in South Africa's De Hoop Nature Reserve.
It offers many room types, including equipped cottages like this one,…
…which can each sleep up to four travellers...
…in two en-suite bedrooms.
Each cottage's bathroom is fitted with a flush toilet, hand basin…
…and a shower.
The fully equipped kitchen…
..and dining area at each equipped cottage…
…allow guests to cater for themselves if they wish to.
In contrast to that, travellers staying at the stable suites are fully catered for.
These suites open out towards the vlei and come with…
…a big double bed, a desk, a seating area…
…and a massive en-suite bathroom.
Alternatively, the bedrooms at the Opstal Manor have a more antique touch to them…
…and are available both in twin and double configurations.
The bathroom here features a bath, wash basin,...
…a shower and a toilet.
The main areas embrace several seating areas,…
…all decorated in a historic country style…
…and comfortably furnished.
Although there is an antique kitchen, the manor is fully catered for.
You can dine inside at the Fig Tree Restaurant...
…or outside on a deep veranda,…
…from where it's not far to the Opstal's tennis court and the swimming pool.
The Opstal is a very  good base for adult travellers as well as children…
…who wish to explore the wildlife…
…and stunning diversity of habitats of the De Hoop Nature Reserve.
