      Nature is Just One of the Luxuries in Cape Town South Africa

      Only a two-hour drive from Cape Town enroute to Hermanus and the Garden Route, Grootbos Private Nature Reserve is centered in the heart of the Cape’s abundant sea, floral and wildlife landscapes. The reserve boasts some of the world’s most distinct and unique plant, bird and animal species. Grootbos is renowned for lavish luxury and comfort, inspired by the grandiose beauty of nature that surrounds and sustains it. Two five-star lodges, including 27 luxury designed suites, and an exclusive villa ensure princely accommodation in this spectacular wildlife kingdom flanked by fynbos-clad mountains and sea, overlooking the whale watching mecca of Walker Bay and Gansbaai. This exquisite eco-resort offers a smorgasbord of guided outdoor adventures and stylish splendor for its guests. Areas surrounding the Grootbos Nature Reserve provide additional beauty. Gansbaai and nearby De Kelders are premiere destinations for diving with great white sharks and land-based whale watching. Coastal villages of Kleinmond and Betty’s Bay offer miles of unspoiled beaches and mighty sand dunes, while Cape Aqulhas is the meeting point of the Atlantic and Indian Oceans, marking the southernmost point on the continent. Join specialized guides in exploring this wonderland on foot, horseback or 4 x 4 drives. Enjoy whale watching, flower safaris, excursions to ancient archeological caves and birding tours, all included in the accommodation cost. Additional activities such as caged shark diving, scenic flights and wine tours are also available at additional cost.
