Grootbos Private Reserve, located amidst the spectacular fynbos and ancient dunes of the Whale Coast, is a multi-award winning gem. Overlooking Walker Bay, between Hermanus and Gansbaai, it's a nature-lovers paradise. All but the most committed urbanite will enjoy the inclusive activities: guided fynbos 4x4 drives, milkwood forest walks, horse riding, beach picnics and guided land-based whale-watching (mainly August - December), as well as the optional activities of boat-based whale watching and shark cage diving. A dedicated team including marine biologists and conservationists help you to appreciate what makes this area so special.
Other excursions (at extra cost) include guided wine tours around the excellent Hermanus wine estates, aerial flights over the Ocean and visits to their community garden project to see sustainable tourism in action.
A new art gallery has opened and day-visitors are now welcome to pop by for a flower nature drive, lunch, and a visit to the gallery.
Grootbos private reserve consists of two lodges, the original family-friendly Garden Lodge and the contemporary Forest Lodge.
Grootbos Forest Lodge is an architectural masterpiece of sophisticated contemporary design. With 16 luxury suites nestled in a 1,500-year old Milkwood Forest, it offers glorious views of the Atlantic Ocean. The rather extravagant main lodge offers glass walls which embrace and accentuate the ocean and fynbos views. It comprises a restaurant, bar and gallery area. Wooden fireplaces and subtle lighting enhance the warm, romantic ambiance. Outside is a deck and stylish rimflow pool with stunning panoramic ocean views.
