Viewing marine life from above means you won’t disturb the wonderful creatures below you, giving you a privileged glimpse into their natural world.
From the inviting cabin of a small plane, get a bird’s-eye view of Grootbos and its breathtaking surrounds. Purple mountains cradle fynbos far below, while whales swim protectively alongside their newborn calves. In season, you may witness whole pods of whales mating and playing, a sight you won’t glimpse in the same way from land. Why not fly over iconic Table Mountain to Cape Point? Or to the southernmost tip of Africa? An aerial tour can easily incorporate all of these and more.
We stayed in the cosy Garden Lodge with its own fireplace, rain-shower and huge bed. It was an absolutely delight!
Perfect end to a trip. It was a great decision, the property is beautiful.
Grootbos, the Cape's best kept secret. Amazing for walking, running, mountain biking, and horse riding as often as you want.
The highlight of the best trip of our lives - We loved the location immensely!
Exceptional place, we enjoyed wonderful sundowners as we watched for whales, flew above the bay to watch whales from the sky and went on a flower safari.
We welcome South Africans and invite you to experience Grootbos with our special offer.
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.
