The Land of Diversity

South Africa is fast becoming a popular tourist destination because it offers such raw untamed beauty, thrilling activities and a rich multi-cultural society. People from all over the world come to observe the jaw-dropping spectacle of wild animals in their natural habitat and to experience the prevailing natural elements. 

A One-of-a-Kind Experience

Grootbos Private Nature Reserve offers a unique South African experience with luxury accommodation embedded in a natural setting rich in biodiversity and beauty. This five-star lodge is situated on a piece of the Cape Floral Kingdom, the smallest of the six Floral Kingdoms in the world but the most diverse! The rolling hills and mountainous plains are awash with fynbos wildflowers that are endemic to the region and some to Grootbos alone. The sensuous aroma of the fynbos attracts a tapestry of colourful birds, butterflies and petite animals that roam through the low lying vegetation. Guests can embark on an enthralling 4x4 flower safari to grasp the sheer scale of the land and the fauna and flora within. Another safari guests can venture on is through the crisp Atlantic waters to view the Marine Big 5 – Cape fur seals, African penguins, dolphins, the colossal Southern right whales and infamous great white sharks. You can take this Marine safari one step further by climbing into an aluminium cage on a shark cage diving expedition to come face-to-face with the King of the Ocean. Witness the beastly elegance from such proximities and you will undoubtedly have an unforgettable holiday!  Of course if adrenalin pumping adventures are not your thing one could always sit back with a glass of champagne to soak in the view after a soothing Full Body Massage at the Bloom Forest Spa.
