Days at Grootbos Garden Lodge begin with the sound of birds and the taste of fruit, delivered fresh each morning. At the main lodge, an elegant restaurant, spacious lounge, beauty salon, library, and children’s entertainment offer a suite of options for leisure and education, while the wrap-around wooden decks and pool area lend to the harmony between luxury and nature distinctive to Grootbos Private Nature Reserve.

The chefs of Grootbos Garden Lodge are known to draw upon their surrounds to envision fresh culinary fare prepared from the bounties of the sea, land, and earth. Fresh herbs and greens grown on the Reserve adorn the plates, nestled next to succulent meats or fish caught daily from the sea. Award-winning wine menus complete this culinary journey. That is, until the next morning, when the smell of freshly-brewed African coffee ignites the senses as the South African sun rises just beyond the comfort of the canopy bed.
