Walks and Hikes

The air is fresher here. The views are clearer. Immerse yourself in the essence of Grootbos by walking or hiking along one of our many trails and return to your suite with a clearer mind and more restful soul.

Indulge the beauty and serenity

  • Set your own pace: there are walks and hikes to suit every fitness level.
  • The reserve is perfectly safe and all trails are excellently marked.
  • Choose from mountain, forest or fynbos walks.

Enjoy an entrancing stroll through our Milkwood forest or a more revitalising hike up our fynbos-clad mountains, as you begin to understand what makes Grootbos quite so special. From a sunbird sipping from a flower to an ocean vista that leaves you breathless, surprises await you around every corner.

Trails are all well marked and you can choose between self-guided walks or guided walks, to learn more about these fascinating and secretive eco-systems. Gaze into the petals of a King Protea, breathe in the blackcurrant scent of buchu or simply listen to the exquisite silence that surrounds you.
