My dream wedding
WOW!! WOW!! WOW!! I had my wedding at Grootbos a couple of weeks ago. It was the most perfect wedding anyone could have asked for. The Grootbos team went over and beyond to make everything perfect and they did. The food and accommodation is nothing like you have ever seen, the location and setting is out of this world. Thank you Grootbos!!!
Needs to be seen and experienced
If you are looking for the wow factor then look no further. This is a place of tranquillity, relaxation, exceptional food and very good service. We stayed in one of the lodges and it was amazing. The food was simply amazing and they coped with my allergies really well. Jo, our guide was amazing and very knowledgeable, but make sure that you are on time for her lol. The 4x4 tour is a must and Jo's explanations and stories are wonderful. We also did the tour to Walkers Bay caves. Also a must. Thanks for a great stay.
Luxury and nature
Amazing place, incredible houses and restaurant. A nice view down from the mountain towards the ocean. Try horse riding or have a look to the Farm. Super kids Entertainment with Test and feel. But the team was the best ever! Our best regards to all of you and stay as healthy and excellent as you are.

Paradise on Earth
Grootbos is a "once in a lifetime experience". On our trip to South Africa we spent 2 nights in this top notch hotel, which rightly received several international awards, including part of the National Geographic Unique Lodges of the World. The reserve is located just outside of Gansbaai. Already on arrival you feel like in paradise. Almost the whole hotel staff welcomed us on the terrace of the Garden Lodge. Every meal is a pleasure. The breakfast buffet offers a very large selection, is extremely lovingly arranged and very tasty. For lunch or dinner you can choose from the menu or from daily specials. Each course chosen was exquisite. The suites or rather the houses offer every luxury imaginable on an estimated 100+m2. Two huge bedrooms with excellent sleeping quality, two luxury bathrooms and a very comfortable living room offer a lot of space to relax. Another highlight is the beautiful terrace (incl. outdoor shower) with a wide view not only of the fynbos but also of the sea. To enjoy the sunset with a glass of wine on the terrace is pure quality of life. The hotel also offers a wide range of activities. Here we were supervised by Nash. He is an excellent guide and not only our children loved him from the beginning. The highlight was certainly our PicNic on the beach, which we had all to ourselves. Unbelievable what we got to eat and drink. But we also enjoyed the hike through the Milkwood forests, the quad bike ride, the shark dive, the yoga class or the horseback ride (but would have been even nicer on the beach). And to finish the evening at the pool is just great. Special thanks to the always friendly and helpful staff. We enjoyed every minute at Grootbos Private Nature Reserve. Fantastic!!!
