Hopefield was founded on the banks of the Zoute River in 1853 and was originally developed as a church community. It is located in the West Coast region of the Western Cape, South Africa.

Geography and History

Hopefield is situated on the R45, only 130km from Cape Town, in the heart of Fynbos country.

Hopefield is situated along the eastern bank of the Zoute creek which turns into a river in winter. As a result, it is always attractively green around the town.

Fossils were discovered in this town which included the skull of the so-called 'Saldanha Man'.  A replica of this is on display in the information office picturing life in the region some five hundred thousand years ago. 

Hopefield also forms part of the Cape West Coast Biosphere Reserve.
