My wife and I stayed at Grootbos for our final 2 nights on our honeymoon. The location is secluded, epic, diverse and beautiful. The lodges are extremely comfortable, very spacious, modern yet intimate with fire places and huge bathtubs that look out to the wilderness, flora and landscape beyond. Activities are great and there is plenty to do for a minimum of 4 days and a maximum for a lot longer if you want to just relax, have great food and wine and take it easy with the activities. We went on a flora safari (which is very unique to Grootbos with many flowers found only in that reserve), horse riding, whale watching, beach walking and a short walk into a cave. We could not do the shark diving due to weather but that is also very easy to do from Grootbos.
Due to its seclusion, staying at Grootbos is full board, which, often worries me. I was quickly convinced as the food was fantastic and service al-carte style, evening meals were 5/6 courses with choice of starter and mains.
Would thoroughly recommend and would definitely go back. Well done Grootbos.
