About Grootbos Nature Reserve

160 Kilometres from Cape Town on the way to the Garden Route lies the Grootbos Nature Reserve, with over 1700 hectares of nature as we were intended to experience it. Nestling in the fynbos-clad hills above Walker Bay with breathtaking views of dunes, sea and the distant Cape of Good Hope.

Here nature will enchant you at every turn. Experience some of the world's richest flora, the mystical milkwood forest, the fascinating fauna and marine life that enthralls. An overwhelming feeling of peace and tranquility will imbue you with renewed zest for life.

Enjoy the many trails that thread themselves through the fynbos and coastal forest, which provides shelter to a variety of smaller animals such as bush buck, porcupine, grey duiker and lynx. Whether your stay is a brief or extended one, we know that Grootbos will provide you with a lifetime of unforgettable and magnificent memories.

Safari: With over 765 flower species, 6 of which were discovered at Grootbos, and over 2500 hectares of pristine wilderness, the 4x4 Flower Safari is the perfect way to discover the scale and splendour of the Grootbos Private Nature Reserve.

Beach: Grootbos is situated right of the doorstep of the beautiful Overberg coastline, which is the meeting point of two great bodies of water: the cool Atlantic Ocean, and the warm Indian Ocean.

Spa: After spending your time on the outdoor activities, float away to a heavenly realm with a blissful and rejuvenating spa treatment. From shiatsu to full facials, there is a treatment to pamper every inch of your body.

Family friendly: We have plenty of activities for the kids, including a cave tour, horse riding, bird watching and quad biking.

              We very much enjoyed our stay at Grootbos. The facilities were excellent, the setting and scenery absolutely spectacular and the staff kind and hospitable. The food was very good as well; they even baked us a birthday cake! We did some great activities including whale watching (landbased and by boat), horseback riding and long walks through the surrounding reserve. Our kids loved it! Definitely we can recommend the location.
