Grootbos (meaning 'Big Forest' in Afrikaans) is a private nature reserve overlooking Walker Bay - near to the coast between Cape Town and the Garden Route - and is dedicated to the enjoyment of the Cape Floral Kingdom's extraordinary natural bounty. Choose from two luxury lodges: the classic Garden Lodge, ideal for families, and the contemporary, light-filled Forest Lodge, which is set among thousand-year-old milkwood forests and overlooking the Atlantic Ocean. In between, there are deserted stretches of beach, fynbos plains and wonderful vineyards to visit, as well as a range of land and boat-based excursions to experience, which will introduce guests to the local wildlife and superb flora and fauna, including fynbos flowers and ancient milkwood trees. Grootbos is an ideal base to satisfy even the most ardent nature-lover, with friendly, expert Guides eager to share their extensive knowledge. *Please note that Forest Lodge will be closed for repair work from early September until 15 December 2016.
