The beautiful De Hoop Nature Reserve where you can enjoy unparalleled peace and tranquillity in what is arguably one of the Cape’s last unspoiled gems once again provides the backdrop to the popular Kate Ball Yoga Retreat.
The Reserve, a comfortable three hours’ drive from Cape Town along the world renowned Garden and Whale routes is an ideal stop-over en route from the Cape Winelands to Plettenberg Bay.
De Hoop Collection invites you to treat yourself to the ‘gifts’ of rejuvenation and blissful wellbeing by joining yoga specialist Kate Ball at Melkkamer from 16 May to 19 May 2019.
Kate trained in Vinyasa and Forrest yoga and has been teaching since 2007. She has taught in the USA and India and at Cape Town’s SpiritFest for a number of years. Her main style is Vinyasa but she also teaches Bikram. Music features strongly in her classes as does strength, precision and breath awareness. Her love of yoga stems from the transforming power it has had in her own life – she feels deeply fortunate to share yoga with others, and teaches classes centred on love, honesty and present moment awareness. Kate directs YogaSpirit in Constantia Village in Cape Town.
“All levels of practitioners are welcome” says Kate, “so please join me in this peaceful, pristine and scenic setting to deepen your yoga practice. Yoga-nature therapy does powerful work to restore balance and you will work hard, but know that it will leave you feeling peaceful, energised, inspired and beautiful.”

De Hoop Collection is a member of Cape Country Routes.
The De Hoop Collection – the first private/public partnership in the South African hospitality industry – opened in the De Hoop Nature Reserve in the Western Cape in 2007. The Reserve in the Overberg region, a short three hours drive from Cape Town along the world-renowned Garden and Whale routes, is the perfect holiday destination for families, couples, groups, honeymooners and wedding parties, family reunions and birthday weekends and an ideal stop-over en route from the Cape Winelands to Plettenberg Bay. De Hoop Collection offers a wide range of accommodation designed to suit all budgets. The staple of De Hoop’s dining scene The Fig Tree Restaurant has been reinvented and has relocated to a new space, The Shed and also has a new Wine Cellar – in a silo. De Hoop, a World Heritage site offers world-class whale-watching and is paradise for bird enthusiasts with its more than 260 species of birds, including the endangered Cape Vultures. As a colony of almost 200 vultures roost and nest in the Potberg Mountains, exciting Vulture hikes and viewing opportunities are offered; other activities include interpretive marine walks, hiking and mountain biking trails, tennis or boules; and for a bit of pampering there is the ‘ultimate escape’ – revitalising beauty and body treatments at the De Hoop Spa. A nature lover’s paradise with unparalleled peace and tranquillity, in what may be one of the Cape’s last unspoiled gems.
