Set in the picturesque mountain and sea landscape of the Hermanus area along the Cape South Coast, Grootbos is a beacon of style and sustainability.
The extravagant and luxurious Forest Lodge has 16 freestanding suites sprouting naturally from ancient Milkwood thickets providing a blend of aesthetic beauty and supreme comfort.
Garden Lodge is stylish, reflecting African warmth with 11 free standing one or two bedroom suites (accepting children of all ages).
Winning worldwide acclaim for its conservation and social responsibility programs, Grootbos employs specialist guides with a passion for the outdoors sharing their knowledge. Land based whale watching, archaeological cave excursions, beach picnics, flower safaris, birding expeditions and horse riding are all available activities
Beyond the Ordinary
As well as land-based whale watching, Grootbos offers that chance to take to the skies – from the lodge’s exclusive airstrip - and spot whales from a light aircraft. This offers a fascinatingly different perspective and is arguably the best way to appreciate these vast cetaceans.
Why we like it
Combining a stylish refuge from the world and a great place to let your children run free, Grootbos is ideal if you want to be well looked after. The marine orientated activities must be experienced and the plant nursery (which stocks the Eden Project) is well worth a visit. You will leave inspired.
