Set in between the mountains and the sea, Grootbos Private Nature Reserve is a decadent eco paradise on the southern tip of South Africa in Hermanus. If you want something a little different from the classic safari, we think this serves as a great choice. Home to the ‘Marine Big Five’, you’ll be able to keep watch for glimpses of whales, seals, sharks and even penguins. Topped off with exotic flora, this is a truly beautiful place.
Be prepared for luxurious accommodation, gourmet dining and spectacular views – this reserve has it all. If you want to take in the natural side to Grootbos you’re well equipped – the rolling hillsides, mountain ranges and enticing coastlines are teeming with wildlife, flora and birds. The staff are incredibly friendly, helping to ensure that every moment of your holiday is a memorable one.
Top tip: Just 30 minutes from Hermanus and two hours from Cape Town, this is a great place to be if you want to explore some more of South Africa’s wonderful destinations.
To combine Grootbos with a stay in Cape Town, the Garden Route or even Kruger National Park, please call our African specialists who will be happy to put together a tailor-made South African holiday for you.
