Grootbos – South Africa

Grootbos is a jewel in the crown of the Cape Floristic Region. Here you can immerse yourself in the delicate wonders of the fynbos on guided walks, bikes and drives where stunning flowers, milkwood forests and endemic birds of prey are amongst the stars. The superb lodges are perched on a hillside overlooking Walker Bay where seasonal land and boat-based whale watching is a real highlight. The beach is just minutes away and you’ll be immersed in a world of history where the coastal caves serve as a reminder of the first people that one roamed these shores. There are not too many places that offer empty white sand beaches quite like this – walking, horse-riding or simply doing nothing! The list of activities to do and community/conservation programs is long.
