Day 1


- Arrive at Grootbos Private Nature Reserve and enjoy a refreshing glass of sparkling wine while marvelling at the unbeatable views over Walker Bay.

- You will be greeted with a warm towel to wipe away the travel fatigue while a member of staff parks your car and places your luggage in your suite.

- We highly recommend sitting down to a decadent lunch on our outside deck so you can grasp the natural spectacle of Grootbos and the panoramic views over Walker Bay.

- When you are ready, a guide will sit down with you and take you through the list of activities available at Grootbos.

- You will then be led along the cobbled pathway to your self-standing suite nestled in the indigenous vegetation. Make yourself at home and when you are ready we can begin the adventure.

- Take a trip to the pristine beach of Walker Bay where limestone rocks and a midnight blue ocean create an awe-inspiring beauty. There are ancient caves awash with fascinating secrets waiting to be explored. One of our guides will tell your more about the intriguing history of the surrounding area.


- Take your time to relax and freshen up before making your way to the main lodge for a sensational gourmet dinner.

- Sit down to a fusion of culinary delights during a six-course dinner. Our chefs insist on using only the freshest ingredients so most of our produce is home-grown and organic while our seafood is straight from the sea. Needless to say, every meal is an explosion of flavour.

- Whilst you relish the exquisite taste sensation your suite will be prepared for the evening. When you return the lights will be dimmed, the duvet turned down and, if the weather calls for it, a fire lit.

Day 2


- Sit down for breakfast to a buffet of delicacies and something mouth-watering from our hot menu. One of our all-time favourites is the ‘Growing the Future Poached Eggs’ that will be sure to exceed your culinary expectations.

- Discover an incredible adrenalin rush as you get a personal encounter with a great white shark during a heart-pumping Shark Cage Diving excursion! This trip will leave a lasting impression with a once-in-a-lifetime experience. 


- Return to Grootbos and eat until your heart’s content with a gourmet lunch set in a pristine, natural setting.

- Explore the expansive reserve of fynbos-clad valleys and forests on an adventurous quad bike tour.


- End an incredible day with a sensational six-course dinner complemented by a bottle of delicious local wine from the Overberg area.

- Return to the tranquillity of the night sounds and luxurious comforts of your suite.

Day 3


- Savour a fresh and tasty breakfast with views overlooking Walker Bay.

- Whet your horse riding appetite with an hour and a half outride through the 2500 hectares reserve. Grootbos has its own stables on the property and the horses are incredibly well-kept. These well-trained and beautiful creatures will take you on an extraordinary ride through this natural wonderland.

- Depart Grootbos feeling inspired from all the incredible memories and rejuvenated after living luxuriously in harmony with nature.
