Our Milkwood Forest

Grootbos derived its name from our Milkwood forest, the “Groot bos”, which means the big thicket. It is 1 of only 10 Milkwood forests of its type on earth– all of which are constrained to the Stanford-Gansbaai area, of which only 4 are officially protected on the Grootbos Private Nature Reserve.
