Grootbos Private Nature Reserve

Set among the ancient milkwood trees, the large, private suites of Grootbos give the guest a chance to unwind, surrounded by the splendours of nature and pampered by all the comforts of home. Accommodation is in spacious 75m² luxury suites with large private wooden decks providing spectacular view of the Walker Bay, Atlantic Ocean, coastline and Overberg Mountain Range. There is a separate lounge, bedrooms with large, sunny ensuite bathrooms, under-floor heating, heated towel rails, heated blankets in winter, 100% down duvets and cotton bedding, hair dryer, tea/coffee facilities. All rooms are equipped with a safe for valuables, bathrobes, television, well stocked mini bar, fresh fruit basket daily, indigenous fynbos flower arrangement and a fireplace. Each suite has its own secluded balcony from which you can admire the sunsets over the ocean or start the day in tune with the forest birds. Natural textures and colours bring the harmony of nature into your suite. Spacious, finely appointed bathrooms complete the feeling of utter luxury. Between the suites and the main lodge, pathways wind through the largest milkwood forest in the world. Accompanied by specialist guides, guests explore the tidal rock pools and coastal caves and hear of the early inhabitants and famous shipwrecks along the coast. Venture out on 4×4 nature drives or enjoy the safe swimming beaches and a picnic lunch. The cliffs of Walker Bay offer the best land based whale viewing in the world. Mothers, calves and energetic bulls come to within 30 metres of the rocky shoreline. This coastline offers a marine experience like no other. See 40-ton Southern Right Whales only metres from your boat or admire the underwater antics of a 60 000 strong Cape Fur Seal colony. Be amazed by the awesome spectacle of a great white shark breaking the surface. For the brave at heart, close encounters with the Great White shark by way of shark cage diving and surface viewing can be arranged near Dyer Island, possibly the best place in the world to view these magnificent predators.
