Grootbos Private Nature Reserve

SKU: 6939 Category: Tag:

Just a 2-hour drive from Cape Town, the Grootbos Private Nature Reserve offers luxurious five-star accommodation surrounded by untouched indigenous fynbos, magical milkwood forests and the beautiful oceanic vista of Walker Bay. This unique eco-friendly reserve has been designed to blend seamlessly into the natural beauty of the surrounds, ensuring that guests feel as close to nature as possible. Grootbos means ‘big forest’ in Afrikaans, the name us inspired by the huge milkwood trees in the area which are thousands of years old. Responsible tourism is a top priority for Grootbos, with contributions from trade being donated to the Grootbos Foundation to sustain conservation and aid nearby communities. 

Whether you’re in need of a family holiday, a mini break for two or attending a conference, Grootbos offers everything and more. The family-friendly Garden Lodge is made up of free-standing suites, each as luxurious and comfortable as the next, with fireplaces, warm bedding and private decks with endless views over the bay. There’s also a restaurant and bar, a swimming pool, a beauty spa and a children’s play area and dedicated children’s programme. For smaller parties, Forest Lodge is your ideal choice with the restaurant, champagne bar, wine cellar and conference centre playing host to many happy guests. If you’re after an exclusive private getaway, The Villa is made up of six suites and comes with a personal butler, chef and guide, and of course, total privacy.

However you like to take in the magnificent surrounds, there’s plenty on offer – whether that be relaxing on the deck all day or taking part in one of the many activities. Try horseback riding, mountain hiking, cave and tidal pool exploring, beach walking or bird watching. For marine lovers, a boat trip on The Whale Whisperer offers sightings of The Big Five, namely the Southern Right whale, African penguin, Cape fur seals, dolphins and great white sharks. For the brave at heart, there is also the option of shark cage diving.

Grootbos has something for everyone, and being so at one with nature, ensures that all who visit leave revitalised and recharged.
