Progressive Tourism Package

3 Nights

Grootbos isn’t just special because of our pristine natural setting or the unforgettable experiences we offer our guests. It’s special because of the people that work here, live here and get to call this area home. Through our Progressive Tourism Package we hope to open your eyes to the unique way we do things here – ultimately inspiring a new way of living and a more progressive approach to tourism worldwide.

The Experience

Get your hands dirty. Plant a tree. Taste honey from the hive. Meet new people. Make a difference.

Our Progressive Tourism package is one very close to our hearts because it embodies the very essence of what sets Grootbos apart. Collect fresh eggs from the organic farm we’ve set up, meet entrepreneurs we’ve helped get started and students who are carving out a horticulture career for themselves. You can also meet and chat to young people whose lives have been altered by the power of sport. Join us as you connect with the various communities that benefit from tourism in this area and the various initiatives we’ve put in place.
