The rolling hills, mountains and valleys of Grootbos are home to a wide variety of fynbos types as well as pockets of Afromontane and ancient milkwood forests.

Only 2 hours from Cape Town and 30 minutes from Hermanus on the way to the world-renowned Garden Route, Grootbos is perfectly situated between the classic attractions of the Cape and is most certainly a highlight on our itineraries. The 2500 hectare Grootbos Private Nature Reserve is a jewel in the crown of the Cape Floral Kingdom offering guests a complete immersion into the wondrous and magnificent world of fynbos.


An extensive fifteen-year survey of the fynbos at Grootbos has revealed a remarkable 765 plant species, 100 of which are endangered and 6 of which are completely new to science! Four of these new species are known to exist only within the confines of the reserve. This survey, possibly the longest of its kind, has resulted in the publication of a comprehensive Field Guide to the Flora of Grootbos and the Walker Bay region.
