About This Accommodation

Grootbos is located at nearly the southernmost tip of South Africa where the Atlantic and Indian Oceans collide. This is one of the most biologically diverse marine ecosystems on the planet! There is one of the highest concentrations of Great White Sharks in the world and from July thru November you have a great chance of spotting Southern Right Whales. It's also home to the "Marine 5": whales, sharks, dolphins, seals, and penguins. In addition to being a coastal attraction, Grootbos is also located within the 2500-hectare Grootbos Private Nature Reserve. These colorful rolling hills are heaven to flora lovers. Grootbos is in a perfect location to offer some amazing water and land-based activities to experience this wonderland. Activities include whale watching, shark cage diving, scenic walks, horseback riding, birding, scenic flights, quad biking, 4x4 flower safaris, and wine tours.

Grootbos is divided into 3 separate lodges: The Garden Lodge, Forest Lodge, and Villa. The Villa can be booked exclusively for up to 12 people and is an incredible option for groups. Between the Forest and Garden Lodges, the Forest Lodge accommodates children of all ages while the Garden Lodge takes only children of ages 12+. Every suite on the entire property has private decks with gorgeous views and clean and comfortable accommodation. The suites have a very homely feel.

Oftentimes this region gets overlooked, but there are some beautiful properties like Grootbos and really fun, relaxing, and adventurous activities on hand. Definitely worth the visit!
