Nestled on the edge of the Mpumalanga escarpment,Kaapsche Hoop looks over
the valleys toward Barberton and Nelspruit and in this tranquil setting you will
find "Kaapsche Hoop Gastehuis". (Guesthouse).
Kaapsche Hoop Gastehuis has eight fully equipped luxury en-suite rooms with mini bar, each with it's own private entry. The Guesthouse also has a restaurant and bar.
Being only 28 Km from Nelspruit, Kaapsche Hoop Gastehuis is ideally situated as a home base from which you can travel for day trips to Graskop, the Badplaas and even Mozambique or Swaziland.
Rooms can be configured to single, twin or double. Both beds and bedding in the guesthouse are of highest quality, the duvets and cushions being made of pure wool, promising a comfortable, warm and refreshing sleep.
The restaurant used to be known as "The Wild Horse" and became quite well known for its outstanding quality of fare. Today, it is almost solely available to our guests. The bar, also, is private and lends itself to a relaxing atmosphere where friends can meet.
Kaapsche Hoop is surrounded by forests and open grass-veldt, interspersed with beautiful rock formations - sandstone carved by millennia of wind, rain and ice. In this rejuvenating atmosphere you can go for short walks or long hikes and enjoy an area where wild horses roam free, the air is pure, the water is clear and sweet, the people friendly and the memories plenty.
To make your stay all the more memorable, there are horse trails ranging from 1 1/2 hours to five-day bum killer slogs. The ultimate is a moonlight ride. An absolute must for the nature lover! (Only available at full moon in clear weather.) Four wheeler trails are also available to those who are skittish of live horsepower. Both are subject to separate bookings.
The bird life is a pleasure to behold. The critically endangered blue swallow graces us with it's presence during summer and large raptors nesting in trees makes the weight of binoculars on a walk worth while.
Kaapsche Hoop is situated 12km off the N4 towards Nelspruit. Turn off at the SAPPI pulp mill and climb 728 meters while driving 12 km to the top of the mountain. Driving past Kaapsche Hoop is a short cut to Nelspruit, circumventing traffic and cutting a neat 18km off the trip. The beautiful views are free.
Being so high above the surrounding valleys, Kaapsche Hoop has a unique climate with wet misty summers and rather cold winters. Always bring a warm piece of clothing with.
