The spirit of Grootbos Forest Lodge
Flanked by the spectacular cliffs of Walker Bay, is the beautiful Grootbos Private Nature Reserve. Large, private cottages include spacious bedrooms, lovely ensuite bathrooms, air-conditioning and secluded balconies from where guests can admire the breathtaking sunsets over the Atlantic Ocean. Guests can savour hearty breakfast and lavish five-course dinners in the superb restaurant boasting sweeping views of the picturesque surroundings — the passionate chefs work their magic in transforming freshly-caught fish, succulent meats and organic produce into delectable culinary creations, perfectly complemented by award-winning Cape wines. At the end of the day, guests can head to the bar for refreshing cocktails, whilst drinking in the sweeping views from Walker Bay to Cape Point, or retreat to the cosy sitting room for a comfortable spot around the open fireplace on chilly evenings. Adventures include flower safaris, birding tours, horse riding, scenic flights, mountain biking, shark-cage diving, whale-watching tours, guided nature walks, and visits to the renowned Grootbos Nature Reserve, home to the largest private fynbos garden in the world.
What we love about Grootbos Forest Lodge
- Join an experienced guide on a walk along a meandering path through the ancient Milkwood forest which surrounds the reserve, which is home to one thousand-year-old indigenous trees.
- The incredibly spacious baths are perfect for enjoying relaxing soaks in soapy, fragrant waters.
