Grootbos is a very special place – ancient indigenous forest, filled with gnarly milkwoods and old man’s beard, hectares of fynbos to explore, incredible food - feast after feast and you simply have to try the seafood curry, spacious rooms with the most incredible views over Walker Bay and so many activities for our two girls. As parents, we had the unique combination of relaxing alone time, mixed in with exciting nature activities that we shared with our children.

ABOUT Grootbos Nature Reserve Garden and Forest Lodges

Both lodges offer panoramic views and every suite offers complete privacy. Garden Lodge lies in an indigenous garden with stone walls and a warm African ambience. Each suite is nestled between the fynbos with a private sundeck to soak up the tranquillity and view. Forest Lodge is an architectural masterpiece with a chic design that perfectly accentuates the draping branches of the surrounding Milkwood forest. Relaxation is easy with a light-filled lounge, spacious bathroom, airy bedroom and large outside deck with mesmerising views over the ever-changing ocean and African sky.

A creative gourmet cuisine, using home-grown organic vegetables and the freshest local produce, is complemented by fine local wines. Dedicated conservationists accompany guests daily on awe-inspiring excursions to explore the flora, fauna, bird and marine life of the area by foot, boat, horseback or in an open 4x4 vehicle.

From June to December marvel at the Southern Right Whales that may be viewed from the rocky cliffs, pure white beaches, by boat or light airplane. There is also a state-of-the-art conference venue for delegates looking for a luxurious location.

GUEST FEEDBACK

Grootbos Nature Reserve
05 Jan 2016

"Upon arrival at Grootbos, one is taken by the beauty of the nature that surrounds it. The garden at the garden Lodge is exquisite and the views of the ocean from all points of the reserve is breath taking. If you are looking for a peaceful, beautiful, serene and fun time away with your loved ones this is the place. I love the friendliness and prompt service even more. The staff pays attention to small detail and responds to the guests' needs, to die for cuisine was also provided throughout our stay. We would definitely come back!"
