Enjoy an entrancing stroll through our Milkwood forest or a revitalising hike up our fynbos-clad mountains, as you begin to understand what makes Grootbos quite so special. From a sunbird sipping from a flower to an ocean vista that leaves you breathless, surprises await you around every corner.
Our trails are all well marked and guests can enjoy self-guided walks or choose to do a guided nature walk and learn more about fascinating ecosystems on the reserve. Visit our botanical art gallery and discover even more details of the diverse fynbos encountered on your walks or hikes, depicted in the detailed botanical artworks of the Grootbos Florilegium.
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.
We enjoyed our 3-4 hour hikes through the fynbos very much.
Secluded without being isolated, many amazing activities are included such as horse riding, 4x4 safari and nature walks.
Lovely private hikes with our guide were lovely. Very elegant surroundings!
A great nature experience. The natural views of this property just blew me away, with it's nature walks as well as great level service from staff and management.
I have hiked for many years and just completed a 3 day hike in the reserve, the nature and fynbos is magic.

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.
