A Holiday to Remember

For an incredible 2013 create lasting memories with a family holiday at Grootbos Private Nature Reserve. This award-winning eco-lodge is set against a backdrop of rumbling mountains and verdant valleys in the Western Cape. The untamed beauty is mesmerising, and the expansive lodge and luxurious suites only enhance this exotic destination.

Since its inception, Grootbos has strived to be the best in every possible way. It has gradually developed into a world renowned lodge because the Lutzeyers fell in love with the diverse environment and all they wanted to do was create an unforgettable South African experience. Whether you want a safari, luxury or beach holiday with a touch of adventure, Grootbos has it all with an all-inclusive package.

Everything you want in one place

South Africa offers a unique experience with a family safari. The untamed wilderness is one of the most alluring aspects about the African continent. Experience a wild safari with a slight twist; with the prolific marine life around Gansbaai you can now see the Marine Big 5. Witness the stiff-legged walk of the African penguins, a colony of Cape fur seals, dolphins, the gentle Southern right whales (from July to December) and even the toothy grin of a great white shark. For those that can’t resist a heart-racing moment, dip into a cage and see the great whites from close proximities. Grootbos has partnered with Marine Dynamics where children can also witness these amazing animals from the upper deck of the aluminium boat. There is also a 4x4 flower safari where a specialised guide will take you through the expansive reserve to take in the intriguing micro-world and beautiful wildflowers on an open-top Land Rover.

There a range of activities from horse riding to hiking that everyone can enjoy. There is also a kid’s playground with fluffy bunnies, a domestic pig, quacking ducks and hungry ponies that our little guests can feed. All this is monitored by our specialised guides that are passionate about children and their inquisitive minds. Parents can take this time to relax with a spa treatment or unwind on their private balcony with a sundowner.

The two-bedroom luxury suites are the ideal family accommodation as the amplitude of space and privacy is the perfect setting to make yourself at home. The luxury suites have two lush bedrooms with four-poster beds, modern en-suite bathrooms, a coffee making facility, a spacious lounge (with satellite TV), dining area, cosy fireplace and a wooden deck to take in the view.

The foundation of Grootbos was built on family values and we continue to uplift these values every single day. Our aim is to cement the bond between families by offering an outstanding family holiday that will be the highlight of your 2013 in this eco-paradise.
