"Walking through the Fynbos is one of the most magical experiences you will ever have in your life"- Jo de Villiers.
Our collection of curated experiences at Grootbos Private Nature Reserve is inspired by our pristine surroundings and has conservation and community at its core. We are branching out our already extensive list of experiences with our new "Hive to Home" experience. Explore the secret life inside the hive and see what the buzz is all about. Learn how black and yellow formations set out to collect nectar to create a unique, fynbos honey.
Suit up and get ready for a once-in-a-lifetime experience. Visit active beehives under the guidance of our experienced beekeeper and learn the important role bees play in our environment and how delicate their ecosystem is. Look inside a beehive and bee amazed by the fractals in nature - the matrix of hexagonal cells. An insect society made up of individuals that come together to function as one. Return to the farm and see how natural honey is spun and the many uses it has to offer. Conclude the Hive to Home experience with a delicious honey-inspired breakfast under the ancient Milkwood trees.
