Grootbos Private Nature Reserve boasts the best of two worlds – exquisite 5-star comfort and extravagance in an idyllic haven where the unsurpassed beauty of nature dominates even the most lavish interior and exterior design. The luxurious lodges have been artfully crafted within rare fynbos and milkwood forests on a mountain slope overlooking the whale watching Mecca of Walker Bay and Gansbaai.
Only 2 hours from Cape Town en route to Hermanus and the Garden Route, Grootbos is centred in the heart of the Cape’s abundant sea, floral and wild life landscapes. The reserve boasts some of the world’s most distinct and unique plant, bird and animal species. The impressive lodges offer breath-taking views over the Atlantic Ocean.
Home to the Marine Big Five – whales, dolphins, seals, penguins and Great White Sharks – and with unparalleled biodiversity, Grootbos has carved a unique niche in the upmarket eco-lodge sector. This multi-award winning 1750 ha reserve is home to more than 750 different species of plants, offers warm hospitality, excellent cuisine, fine South African wines and is a paradise for nature lovers.
Come feast on the finest cuisine and wines whilst watching spectacular sunsets. Or join the specialised guides in exploring this natural wonderland on foot, horseback or 4×4 drives.
