Grootbos derived its name from our Milkwood forest, the “Groot bos”, which means the big thicket. It is 1 of only 10 Milkwood forests of its type on earth– all of which are constrained to the Stanford-Gansbaai area, of which only 4 are officially protected on the Grootbos Private Nature Reserve.
Grootbos is a world leader in sustainable tourism and has been awarded the highest international accolades possible, making us one of only a handful of lodges to do so.
COVID-19 is highlighting the fragility of our economic and societal systems. Grootbos’s work is fundamentally linked to building sustainable systems and is invigorated by our vision for the future.Envisioning Our Future
