Property Highlights:+
Wildlife Encounters

Tick off your bucket list as you dive into shark-infested waters and encounter one of nature's most feared predators whilst behind the safety of a cage as your adrenaline surges. Observe the majestic Southern Right Whale in the renowned Walker Bay from on board a boat, plane or from the nearby cliffs that overlook the bay as you see the gigantic tails strike the surface of the water. Or take a trip on a Marine Safari, one of the few places in the world to view such a wide range of marine wildlife including, the 'Marine Big Five' in their natural habitat.

Adventure

Grootbos offers an incredible collection of experiences inspired by the incredible surroundings, with conservation and communities at its core. Take a trip on board an open-top Land Rover with the Botanical Safari and learn from knowledgeable guides about this floral kingdom, with 785 recorded plant species in 2500 hectares of unspoiled wilderness and treat your senses. Take to the air on a scenic experience-of-a-lifetime, spot whales frolicking in the waves, amazing vineyards, shipwrecks on the shorelines and mountain peaks peeping through the clouds. Maybe you fancy a quad-bike ride through shaded forests, up mountains and down through charming valleys on an exhilarating fun-filled ride.

Family

Explore the Cape Floral Kingdom on a guided family eco-adventure on foot, by Jeep or horse, or take a sea-safari in search of whales, penguins, seals, dolphins and sharks. You can also plant a tree as part of the resort’s restoration programme, which will be tagged and can be viewed on Google Earth back home. Other inspiring children’s activities include exploring rock pools, bug collecting and football (with children from the local townships, if you wish), all with an emphasis on respecting nature and culture. Children's menus and a special children's turndown service are also available.

Spa & Wellness

Set in the tranquillity of the Milkwood forest, a short walk from Forest Lodge - where you will be surrounded by the calming sound of trees swaying in the wind - or by flourishing landscaped gardens, guests can revitalise and rejuvenate after a day of exciting activities at Bloom spa, located at Grootbos. Unwind and pamper yourself with the amazing range of treatments available, from manicures and massages, to facials and shiatsu. The beauty centre at Grootbos will leave you calmer, stronger and more centred.
