Day 1

Afternoon:

- 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 exciting activities that will make this trip the ultimate honeymoon with an adventurous twist.

- You will then be led along the cobbled pathway to your self-standing luxury suite. Make yourself at home in your secluded suite and let the romantic adventure begin.

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

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 cosy fire lit.

Day 2

Morning:

- Leisurely wake up to a delightful breakfast made from fresh produce picked straight from our organic farm.

- 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. On every trip there is a marine biologist who can dispel the myths behind these misunderstood creatures and you will witness an unforetold beastly elegance under the water.

Afternoon:

- Return to Grootbos and take advantage of the sweeping views during a scrumptious lunch in the restaurant or outside in the fresh air.

- Let the wind whip through your hair as you and your loved one horseback ride through the reserve for an hour.

- Then 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.

Evening:

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

Day 3

Morning:

- Sit down for breakfast to a buffet of delicacies and something mouth-watering from our hot menu. The eggs are the freshest you could possibly get as they will have been picked from our chicken coup that very morning.

- Explore the wondrous wildflowers of the fynbos on an invigorating 4x4 flower safari through the reserve. The alluring aromas of the fynbos entice brilliantly-coloured birds that spread a melody through the valley while you take in the magnificent scenery.

Afternoon:

- If you have a taste for inspiration, one of our guides can introduce you to our Social Responsibility Projects Grootbos has initiated since 2005. Visit our Green Futures and Growing the Future Colleges and learn more about organic farming, animal husbandry, fynbos landscaping, horticulture and the upliftment of the local community through the Grootbos Foundation.
