Grootbos Private Nature Reserve delights in being finalist in three categories of the “WE ARE AFRICA INNOVATION AWARDS 2015”. After the 2014 win in the category Community Engagement, it has been announced that Grootbos Private Nature Reserve has been declared a finalist in 3 categories of the 2015 African Innovation Awards. This astonishing news is both exhilarating and confirms the ethos of excellence and community investment this exclusive private nature reserve has established since inception. The Grootbos Foundation has an extensive array of community outreach programmes at the very cutting edge, leading the way in promo-ting sustainability and conservation, with initiatives in sport, encouraging children and young adults to learn about unity and understanding between communities, enterprise development and training in indigenous horticulture and field gui-ding. The sought-after We are Africa Innovation Awards celebrate the most inspiring and innovative ventures of African travel –only the most innovative brands make the shortlist - therefore the Grootbos nomination as finalist in three categories are met with appreciation and sheer delight.

It is a brilliant feather in the cap for the initiatives of Grootbos Private Nature Reserve and the Grootbos Foundation to empower the surrounding communities in the bigger Walker Bay region in their quest to create a responsible tourism model. The winners will be announced at a gala event in Cape Town on the 5th May.
