Plenty of activities
If you ever wonder what you will be doing during your stay at the Ocean House, rest assured… you will be kept busy and entertained. Included in the rate is a wide and diverse range of guided or non-guided activities, which are tailor-made to guest’s preferences. Of course there is also time to enjoy the beach!
At low tide the beaches in front of Ocean House become a true treasure cove. The expert guide takes the guests on an exciting walk and shows them many of the living creatures and organisms. If you are lucky you may find octopus or even tracks of the rare cape leopard.
Explore De Hoop Nature Reserve by bike, taking in all the sights, sounds and smells. Instead of sitting in a vehicle (again), this time you can burn some calories. Perhaps you even spot some whales as you ride along. We have got bikes in different sizes, including kiddies bikes.
From June until November the Southern Right Whales migrate to the South African coastline to give birth to their calves. South Africa’s De Hoop Nature Reserve is one of the prime spots for land based whale watching anywhere in the world. Especially in August and September you may be able to see 30-40 whales daily, from the comfort of your bed!
This is an absolute favourite with the kids, but even the parents can’t resist temptation to ride the slopes of the snow white sand dunes. Best combined with your drink of choice at sunset or whenever the whim takes you. Oh… and you may be able to spot dolphins and whales at the same time!
And if the above selection has not yet convinced you, here are a few more activities (included in the rate): nature drive by open 4WD gamedrive vehicle, snorkelling in the protected rock pools, walks through the surrounding fynbos, exploring the sanddunes, picnic lunches on the beach or in the park, challenge the staff to a game of beach volleyball or make your own kites with local materials and fly them on the beach. For longer stays we can also offer an optional daytrip to Struisbaai, including a private whale watching boat trip (surcharge applies).
