Spring Splendour Special - 55% Off The Normal Rate
STEP INTO SPRING
As we tentatively take our first steps into this changed world, it makes sense that this coincides with the onset of spring. A time of regeneration, new growth, of ‘coming to life’. A time where we can see how infinite nature’s source of renewal is all around us.
On Grootbos, spring is more magnified than ever. Nature awakens and the Grootbos landscape comes to life. The surrounding hills are covered in the blanket of pink blossoms of the Erica irregularis, the Southern Right Whales mark their arrival frolicking in the bay below and the sunlight sparkles penetrating the ancient Milkwood forest canopy.
Now more than ever, Grootbos’s ethos of immersion and connection with nature, makes sense. The energy and regeneration across the landscape is tangible with a vibrant energy of the splendor of Spring.
Step into spring with us during our ‘Spring Splendor’ and experience this special time with us.

Grootbos inspires a spirit of adventure and discovery. During spring the deep blue water of the Atlantic Ocean comes alive with abundant marine life. Explore the pristine coastline with your nature guide at hand and marvel at the endless stretches of white beach as far as the eye can see. Discover the historic limestone caves and imagine early life in this untouched setting.
Relax and unwind with a soul soothing couple massage in our Grootbos Forest Spa set deep within the Milkwood forest.
