This multi-award winning 1750 hectare reserve hosts more than 750 different plant species and offers warm hospitality, excellent cuisine and fine South African wines. The conservation of endangered endemic flora and fauna and social responsibility programmes are at the heart of Grootbos Private Nature Reserve. All guests directly contribute to these causes and the upliftment of the local communities.

Visiting Grootbos Reserve is an unforgettable experience. Guests will discover delicate rare Fynbos and the largest Milkwood Forests in the world. The beaches are lapped by crystal clear waters frequented by Southern Right Whales, the rare African Penguin and Great White Sharks.

There is plenty to do for the whole family at Grootbos. Caves can be explored and there are horseback rides and hiking trails through stunning scenery as well as shark cage diving, whale watching and more. Back at Garden Lodge, there is complete relaxation available with beauty and spa treatments at Bloom Salon, or in-suite if guests prefer.
