Long Hope Villa is a graciously restored farmhouse with a fantastic setting, tucked away inside a 14 000ha private concession of Addo Elephant National Park in the Eastern Cape. Dating back to the early 1900s, Long Hope is a combination of old-world elegance and charm fused with modern amenities.

The villa is part of by Riverbend Lodge but is situated some distance away. Take a stroll along the garden path which leads through an indigenous garden to a private swimming pool; further along takes you to a sunset deck where you can spend a lazy afternoon relaxing. A perfect safari destination for families or small groups, Long Hope provides a private guide to take you on game drives or walks, while other activities on offer include birding trips, horseback safaris, citrus tours and picnics, elephant encounters, astronomy, cultural and historical excursions.
