The Retreat at Groenfontein is a rare find ! Nestled in a circumference of south africa's most majestic rolling mountains, you are a guest amongst unique fauna and flora from a lost time. The giant tortoise we spotted ambling across our path as we cycled to the rock pools embodies the speed and timeless beauty of Groenfontein. This is a place to relax, unwind and hibernate from WiFi and Cell Phones. Prepare for a sensory flora explosion with abundant endemic fynbos from millions of years ago. As a guest at Groenfontein we felt as though we were part of the family !! We are South African and we can only imagine what an impact Groenfontein must have for international travellers...
