The Grootbos five star accommodation is situated near Hermanus, the area is famous for whale watching and shark cage diving. The Grootbos Lodge is set in the Grootbos Private Nature Reserve, between fynbos and milkwood trees, between the mountain and the sea.

Grootbos is a two hour drive from Cape Town.

The word Grootbos is Afrikaans for Big Forest.

Enjoy walks, many scheduled outings, amazing cuisine and superior luxury at Grootbos Forest Lodge.

Grootbos is the perfect base from where to do shark cage diving, whale watching, wine tasting and amazing scenic drives. Visit Hermanus and go whale watching or the quaint town of Stanford. There are great mountain bike routes near Stanford at Beloftebos or Salmons Dam Nature Reserve. I can highly recommend lunch at Stanford Valley Lodge where Elsabe and her team prepare the most delicious meals. After lunch take a walk around the beautiful grounds and if you are very enthusiastic walk up the mountain through all the protea bushes.
