Day 1

Afternoon:

- 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 culinary adventure.

- Join one of our Chefs on a tour to our Growing the Future Project where our own organic vegetable garden and resident free-range chickens are located. Grootbos strives to only use local and organic produce in its kitchens.

Evening:

- 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

Morning:

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

- Depart Grootbos for a day trip to the De Kelder Caves where you can walk the same path as ancient man once did. A beach picnic lunch will then follow on the pristine beach of Walker Bay.

- Return to Grootbos and unwind on your private balcony or by the swimming pool as the sun begins to transform the sky into a masterpiece of passionate hues and brilliant colours.

Evening:

- In the cosy depths of our wine cellar, allow our Executive Chef to prepare a special food and wine pairing dinner. The delicious local wine and gourmet food will clash in a symphony of flavour in your mouth.

- Once you are satisfied by the culinary feat you can return to your suite along the cobbled pathway to the homely comforts and the tranquillity of nature.

Day 3

- Sit down for breakfast to a buffet of cereals, fruits, cheese, salmon, cream cheese, and honey-glazed croissants and so on. You can then follow this exquisite selection by ordering a hot meal a la carte.
