When world-renowned British conservationist David Bellamy says ‘The best example of conservation of biodiversity I have ever seen – Grootbos says it with flowers’ then one knows that he has discovered a truly exceptional nature destination.
Situated less than two hours from Cape Town and overlooking the spectacular Walker Bay, Grootbos encapsulates not only brilliant service but also a unique environment of conservation and human development.
Fundamental to this ethos is the amazing diversity of flowering plants on Grootbos. Protecting 1768 hectares of unique Cape Floral Kingdom, with over 730 species of indigenous flowering plants, a walk, horse ride or 4x4 drive through Grootbos Nature Reserve offers young and old an introduction to natures more subtle nuances.
Whether ones interests are birding, gardening, wild flowers, whale watching, diving with great white sharks or relaxing on spectacular unspoilt beaches Grootbos has it all.
The gourmet cuisine is crafted from the finest and freshest local ingredients, including seafood specialties and excellent South African wines. One can experience a fusion of culinary delights and an unforgettable combination of hospitality, friendship and professionalism while marveling at mesmerizing views of Walker Bay.
A sunset at Grootbos is one of the most beautiful under African skies with views sweeping across vast expanses of ocean and distant mountain ranges.
At Grootbos you will feel welcomed to a truly unique place where conservation, luxury and relaxation have found the perfect home.
