What our guests have said about this accommodation

Peter Lofstedt
New ablutions are good.
Kobie Moolman
The Richersveld was awesome!
G Kalis
As always, a pleasant experience. Thumbs up for the additional ablution at De Hoop. The maintenance and care is remarkable. Although a dry season the veld was amazing and I must admit Tattasberg touch our soles. Keep it up we will be back
Colin Turner
The staff at Sendelings drift were fantastic, we underestimated the traveling time and were late arriving on Saturday evening, we planned to camp at Sendelings Drift but because we arrived late and had children with us we requested two Chalets for the night. Our request was no problem and the duty manager (Carmen) came from her home to let us have the keys. The friendly way in which we were treated was really wonderful particularly after a long trip. Thank you to Elias at the gate, he was very eager to help with advice. We camped at de Hoop for four nights and really enjoyed the experience.The only negative of the trip was, after we had crossed into Namibia and passed through the Border Post, to be harassed by two members of the Namibian Police scratching through wallets and bags apparently looking for diamonds but all the while trying to solicit bribes in money or in kind. Other than this one incident we really enjoyed our stay!

Great camping site - beautiful area, thoroughly enjoyed the time there!

The campsite was lovely. We were expecting rustic which is what we got. The roads are in shocking condition and the goats and sheep that are allowed to graze in the park was a disappointing sight.
Johan van Vuuren
An great setting for a campsite
Paul van der Merwe

Good Camp site and ablutions. Fishing average, but disappointing to find toilet paper etc littering the river bank...there aught to be some signs and perhaps fining in place to stop this disgusting practice. Perhaps an awareness leaflet on disposal/etiquette of toilet waste in bush/river areas used by tourists and fishermen....I was surprised to see such a pristine environment so abused by mostly south african campers.....
Gert Kalis
De Hoop is and will remain the preffered camp for campers. Kokerboom can be as good if the water and ablution can be rectified.
L Grassow
We stayed 2 nights at this camp. Nice for people who like fishing.If you are not lucky to find camping near the river you end up in thick sand. Still enjoyed it very much
Joe Terblanche
Thank you for the Richtersveld, it was awesome!Some of the roads are just badly corrugated, and something sad was the new diggings between De Hoop, and Die Werf. It is sad to see how badly dug up this part is, and that it is simply left this way. But once again, thank you for the opportunity to visit this amazing sacred place.

Doug Drysdale
The destination is everything for De Hoop. Being there out of season was a bonus as it is not busy in May which adds to the experience of the great outdoors. Remote and wild. A fabulous experience.
Awie & Ruth Thomas
Where ever we travel, from Uberammergau to Sendelingsdrif, we experience the greatness of our Saviour and Creator. The Richtersveld is special, silent, beautiful....will always go back for this experience! We saw plenty birds, Springbok and Klipspringers, fished for Yellowfish and Barbel in the river... took stunning pictures... left only our footprints, as did the Richtersveld in our lives!!

Unorgettable trip in South Africa
We have spent 12 days as a family in South Africa with my 3 children and my wife who is in a wheelchair. Thanks to Pascal, consultant, we were able to spend an unforgettable moment with a great program while being well accompanied despite our constraints. I recommand particularly the "Monwana game lodge" for a safari in Hoedspruit. It's an amazing place with very nice people and a real family atmosphere. Thank you to the entire team for this unforgettable trip.

Superior service, knowledgeable, transparent, amazing can-do attitude
These guys get 10/10. I have booked with them a few times. To Kruger National Park, including both public and private(concession) camps, flights and car hire. Their senior agent, Dolan is exceptional. Nothing is too much trouble. Attention to detail, transparency, and 'can-do' attitude are out of the ordinary. I recently came into contact with Tanya at as well. It looks like all their agents are similarly well trained. Thank you. I cannot recommend Dolan and his team highly enough.

Cape Town miracle
I was in Cape Town, South Africa recently for an athletic competition and had allowed myself a week of personal time to relax and properly conclude the trip, but had not bothered to plan a safari to occupy the time. I was skeptical of the cost and whether I would enjoy the experience, however a couple days into that final week it occurred to me, in a bit of a panic attack, what a waste it would be not to take advantage of this opportunity. I hopped online and started looking at flights to Johannesburg (almost all the safaris in SA start there with an early morning pick up), but it was basically impossible to get a flight early enough and/or to coordinate with the multiple safaris operating in or just outside of Kruger. With no apparent options available to turn my remaining 4 1/2 days into even a 3 day safari I stumbled on the most obvious website one could imagine, I'd completely given up negotiating all the variables on my own but here was a safari travel agent that might be able to help me .. and they were based right out of Cape Town, literally a stones throw from my lodgings. Serendipity, or so i hoped. I immediately sent out an email and crossed my fingers .. for roughly an hour and a half, at which point Dolan from responded to me requesting I give him a call so that we could expedite potential arrangements. My in country phone plan wasn't able to make calls, but we arranged for him to call me and not 3 hours after being in the grip of despair Dolan got through to me and far from notifying me of how absurd it was to hold out hope for a literally, last minute safari adventure with barely 4 days available to me, he had already worked out all the details I'd sent and created a preliminary safari trip that would bypass Johannesburg airport for a flight the next morning to a closer, much, much smaller airport where I would be picked up taken, not to a 3 day safari, but a full 4 day safari, then back to the tiny, tiny airport for a return flight to Cape Town with 2 hours to spare for my return leg all the way home. It almost feels like an afterthought, after the minor miracle Dolan was able to conjure up, but the safari itself at Simbavati Lodge was just an absolutely stunning experience. The single "tent" he booked me was as luxurious as any 4 star hotel I've stayed in, the game drives, one every morning, one every evening were more amazing than I could have ever imagined, and the food, 3 meals a day with snacks and an open bar was sublime. I could go on about the wonderful staff, or the wonderful other safari goers you can meet and grab a drink with, or the different animals walking through the open lodge facilities daily .. but I've gone on long enough. I'll simply conclude by saying .. safari, absolutely, yes, do it, it is amazing. And when you do decide, will do you right and if you have the pleasure of working with Dolan, do give him my thanks .. the entire experience was the best part of my trip :)

A great company
What to say! We planned a South African Safari for 2020 with We researched companies and took a chance on one we had never heard of before. Henry Franklin was our agent, we gave him our budget and wish list. He came up with a wonderful looking trip and we made our choices! Then came Covid, preventing us from going. We couldn’t have been in better hands. Henry rebooked everything for the next year. He kept us updated on how things looked there. When in 2021, we decided it still looked iffy, he rebooked us a second time for 2022. We couldn’t have been happier with the service we had in a rough time for all. We had a wonderful experience on our trip when we finally got to go!! Henry had everything so well organized and gave us a detailed list of what transfer companies would be meeting us and when. When Airlink bumped us and put us on standby returning from Victoria Falls, we called the concierge number Henry had given us and Catherine worked hard on this and got us back on our flight. The team had our back and we have no regrets. Would definitely use them again. Our lodging was wonderful, saw the big 5 within first 2 drives. Henry definitely knew the territory and did a great job matching what we wanted with where he suggested we go and stay. Thanks, Henry and Catherine!

I've recently interacted with Dolan and hands down he's been the best travel agent that I've every worked with. He was a wealth of experience and knowledge which shows volumes. He took into consideration my budget and my individual needs to tailor make a package with recommendations for my preference,he knows Kruger and Greater Kruger like the back of his hands and I will wholeheartedly recommended his services. He is truly an asset to his institution.
