    Guests can enjoy African and European gourmet cuisine, made with fresh and locally grown produce in Grootbos Private Nature Reserve’s 2 restaurants. Full English breakfast menus, light lunches and 6-course dinners are included in the rate.

    Grootbos Private Nature Reserve offers various tours, including flower safaris, horse riding, birding tours, shark cage diving in Gansbaai, and of course whale watching tours.

    Grootbos Nature Reserve is a multi-award winning nature reserve, and home to more than 740 different species of plants. The centre of Capetown is a scenic 2-hour drive away.
