Grootbos Secret Season: Summary

31 July
Secret Season

As the Secret Season at Grootbos (May to July) comes to a close, we take a look back at all the exciting adventures we explored during this magical time.

Less than two hours away from Cape Town lies the magical region of the Overberg.  A unique landscape of fynbos covered contours and beautifully textured coastlines. In the heart of this majestic floral kingdom is a private nature reserve dedicated to sustaining this delicate world heritage site for generations to come.

Every year one particular plant transforms the landscape into a canvas of unbelievable pink. Found nowhere else in the world, this rare Erica irregularis joins in as the whole wilderness comes alive. Enjoy bird watching while animals and insects feast on the flowers, ancient Milkwoods glow with vitality in the morning dew, the crystal clear ocean bustles with marine life and ever-changing clouds paint sunsets across the endless horizon. This is the Secret Season at Grootbos Private Nature Reserve.

A rare time when nature parades in all her beauty. Immerse yourself in another world with our fynbos discoveries, harvest your own honey from the hives in the fynbos, pick your own organic vegetables from the gardens at Grootbos and prepare them with a chef. Forage for mussels on the rocky coast and indulge in the freshest seafood cuisine. Enjoy the finest dining experiences whilst tasting an array of local award-winning wines.

Find adventure in the sprawling floral wilderness with our horse riding and mountain biking experiences or take to the sea and witness the unforgettable Marine Big 5. Wind down in elegant comfort with breath-taking views over the ocean or just stare into the warm glow of dancing flames under a starry sky.

This is the Secret Season at Grootbos Private Nature Reserve.

We’d like to give a big thank you to all who joined us during this magical time and to those who made all these journeys possible.. Till next year!
