Grootbos Private Nature Reserve
Situated in the southernmost region of South Africa in the heart of the Cape
Floral Kingdom, you can’t get too much further south on the great continent.
Only 2 hours from Cape Town and 30 minutes from Hermanus en route to the
world-renowned Garden Route, Grootbos is perfectly situated between the classic
attractions of the Cape.
Nestled in an ancient Milkwood forest surrounded by rolling hills of fynbos and majestic mountains, the accommodation and lodges at Grootbos offer breathtaking panoramic views of the ocean and landscape. Orientated towards the setting sun, every evening offers another grand spectacle of light and colour. The convergence of the great Atlantic and Indian Ocean at the Southern Tip of Africa results in one of the most prolific and diverse marine ecosystems in the world.
