Keep still, listen intently and you’ll be amazed at the things you learn on a botanical safari. Explore the richest temperate flora in the world on the Grootbos reserve and discover its unique flora and fauna. Then visit our botanical art gallery where the intricate narratives of the fynbos environment are depicted in the detailed botanical artworks of the Grootbos Florilegium.
Touch, smell, and see the enchanting narrative of fynbos and forest come to life while discovering over 900 plant species recorded on our pristine 3500 hectares of wilderness. Learn how a sunbird’s beak fits perfectly into a flower, why the honey our bees produce is completely unique, and how important fires in the fynbos are for bringing forth new life.
Discover the Grootbos Florilegium, a unique collection of botanical illustrations by a collaboration of local and international artists. The collection depicts the rare, endangered and charismatic plants found on the Grootbos reserve and surrounding regions. What makes these artworks even more distinctive is the inclusion of insects, pollinators and other creatures associated with the flora.

The last year has been a busy one at Grootbos. We rebuilt our beloved Garden Lodge entirely and re-opened it in April 2022. We also officially launched the Grootbos Florilegium - Africa's first contemporary florilegium - which is a collection of botanical illustrations created by local and international artists, depicting the charismatic plants found on our reserve and the surrounding regions.
