Grootbos is in the heart of the Cape Floral Kingdom overlooking the whale watching haven of Walker Bay. Two hours from Cape Town, two impressive lodges, Forest and Garden, have been built in harmony with the natural surroundings. Creative cuisine using home-grown organic vegetables and the freshest local produce is complemented by fine local wines. Dedicated conservationists accompany guests daily on excursions to explore the flora, fauna, bird and marine life of the area by foot, on horseback or in open 4x4 vehicles. From June to December marvel at the Southern Right Whales which can be viewed from the rocky cliffs, the beaches, by boat or by light aircraft. TGCSA 5-Star Lodge.
