The Coast with the Most

Situated in the southernmost region of South Africa in the heart of the Cape Floral Kingdom, you can’t get too much further south on the great continent of Africa than the Grootbos Private Nature Reserve. 

Only 2 hours from Cape Town and 30 minutes from Hermanus en route to the world-renowned Garden Route, Grootbos is perfectly situated between the classic attractions of the Cape.

Nestled in an ancient Milkwood forest surrounded by rolling hills of fynbos and majestic mountains, the accommodation and lodges at Grootbos offer breathtaking panoramic views of the ocean and landscape. On a clear day, it’s possible to see all the way to Cape Point! Orientated towards the setting sun, every evening offers another grand spectacle of light and colour.

The convergence of the great Atlantic and Indian Ocean at the Southern Tip of Africa results in one of the most prolific and diverse marine ecosystems in the world. Situated directly between the whale sanctuary of Walker Bay and the Great White Shark capital of Gansbaai, Grootbos is uniquely positioned to offer you a one-of-a-kind marine safari experience.

The Southernmost Safari

In short, Grootbos is a luxury eco destination like no other, showcasing the unique marine and floral diversity of the Southern Tip of Africa, in convenient proximity to the classic attractions of the Cape.
