The stay at GrootBos was most definitely a high light of our travel to the Western Cape.
Not only was the accommodation well appointed and extremely comfortable, the food was a memorable culinary experience.
We found the staff to be extremely attentative and obliging making us feel really at home.
The lodge is fortunately child friendly with our daughter appreciating and enjoying the kind hospitality and my wife and I appreciating the child watching facility.
The lodge is well located in a fynbos reserve over looking the maginificent Walker Bay.
This area is rich in activities including the renowned great white shark experience, whale watching, superb coastal vineyards with wine tasting.
The eco sensitivity of the lodge and staff including various self sustaining enviro, horticultural and viticulture projects were encouraging to note.
The social upliftment project educating and training qualifying local people as well as assisting with job placements on course completion sets the vision of Grootbos lodge management apart from others and should be a blue print for other lodges in the sector to follow.
