We stayed 2 nights at Grootbos and had high expectations, but they were not completely met.
The lodge is superb! Very spacious and luxureous with a separate living room, bed room with sea view and a huge bath room, also with sea view. Magnificent! On the sun deck is another, outdoor shower.
Very modern, newly built (2005) and design furnishing.
Dinner was good, but nothing fancy, we actually preferred breakfast and (hot) lunch.
We did a guided nature walk on the Reserve, which was nice, but not spectacular. It was good to experience the fynbos, but that does not take more than 2 hours.
All other activities are basically outside the Reserve and concentrated in Gansbaai. They are arranged at (quite high) additional costs, except for a coastal whale watch.
I did the white shark cage diving and that certainly is an experience of your lifetime!
We also did the boat whale watching, which we can recommend as well.More
