Unique to the Addo Elephant National Park, Long Hope Villa is a beautifully restored 1900s Eastern Cape farmhouse and is located on a 14 000ha private concession.
Long Hope Villa is the ultimate exclusive African experience and comes complete with a private chef, personal game vehicle and field guide.
The villa has three en-suite rooms and accommodates up to six guests. The beautiful interactive farmhouse kitchen encourages interaction between the guests and the chef as he prepares your meals exactly to your liking.
The open plan lounge leads out onto a private veranda, indigenous garden and swimming pool, which invites you to cool off from a hot summer’s day.
Outdoors you can enjoy fabulous barbeques on a cool summer evening, or dine al fresco under the stars.

Activities at the villa are tailored to suit your interests and schedule; they include morning and evening game drives, guided walks, wine tasting, photography classes, walking with giraffes, picnics, mountain hikes and pampering treatments.
