Hopewell can only be described as a corner of paradise (quoting another reviewer). It is such a magical place, with impeccable accommodations decorated to perfection and class and with personalized game drives with amazing viewings of rhinos, hippos, water buffaloes, elephants, zebras, giraffes, hyenas, jackals, and a one of kind experience of walking with a Tabu, a cheetah. The staff makes one feel at home from the beginning, from the Manager (Anthony) to the chef (John), to the ranger (Paulie) to the cleaning staff (Mary and Monica), everyone caters to one´s every whim and wishes. It is probably the only game lodge where you will have the entire staff and lodge for yourself. They have a policy of only having one guest at a time, which makes the experience that much more personalized and incredible. If you are looking for personalized treatment at a perfect location with the most professional and warm staff, and with great viewings of animals in the wild (and as I said walking with a cheetah!!!) then Hopewell is your place! Thank you so much for making this experience the perfect and dream ending for our SA trip. This is a very special place that we hope we can go back in the future.
