An incredible adventure

Fat Biking

Explore the Overberg landscapes along trails through the Cape fynbos and into dune moonscapes through to the pristine Walker Bay coastline.

Definitely one for the Bucket List

This Fat bike adventure is a great experience, strap on your helmet and head out. The experience starts on guided trails through the fynbos. The landscape transitions into the dramatic dune landscapes and finally to the white sands of the Walker Bay coast.

Birds, seals, dolphins and whales (in season) are frequent sightings in this natural wonderland. The extra thick 4.7 inch tyres ensure that you won't get stuck and that the dunes are easily navigated.

Fat Biking is something for every level of proficiency or experience and is appropriate for all ages. It makes for a fun group activity, team building or family outing.

  • An easy but exhilarating experience appropriate for all
  • A more advanced experience is available for the more experienced riders 
  • A fun, active experience in nature with views over the fynbos and Walker Bay coastline
  • Protective gear (helmet, gaiters), entrance fee and light refreshments included

"I love taking guests into this incredible terrain that would not be possible without fatbikes"


Fun in the sun! First time on a fatbike! What made it special is that Walker Bay Nature Reserve is such a pristine natural setting! The guide really made the trip special and was fantastic taking us through the dunes.

Fantastic way to explore the dunes, it can be adventurous or easy-going, but very safe.  Amazing views of Walkerbay and very experienced guide. Environmentally-friendly activity and gets your heart racing. A must-do for adventure lovers.

What's new at Grootbos - New Garden Lodge and Florilegium

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.
