On the Colourful Trail of the Senses

As the early morning fog reluctantly dissipates, the view opens onto the azure Atlantic Ocean, the rugged Walker Bay coastline and vast, colourful flower fields. The fragrance of Fairy Bells and ancient Milkwood Trees drifts in on the ocean breeze. The Grootbos Private Nature Reserve is located on the Whale Coast’s fairest stretch near Gaansbai. The spectacular luxury retreat nestles amidst the pristine nature of the Cape Floral Kingdom.

At only two hours driving distance from Cape Town, the Grootbos Private Nature Reserve offers its guests pristine African wilderness on the Western Cape – a supremely relaxing adventure! The Atlantic Ocean with its many miles of sand beaches and bizarre dune formations, century old Milkwood Forest in the hinterland, gurgling streams and the peculiar Fynbos vegetation all form part of the landscape that radiates meditative peace and quiet. Grootbos stands for luxury. However, the essence of that luxury lies in the surroundings, the possibility to reconnect both with nature and oneself, to stroll the sandy trails in between delicate flowers and exotic plants.

The Cape Floral Town bursts out in colour: yellow, orange, violet and pink hues paint the landscape. More than 750 Fynbos species have been described and can be discovered on guided flower safari hikes. Having hiked one day, set off the next in a sturdy safari vehicle, on a mountain bike or securely mounted on a sure-footed horse. The Fynbos nourishes the soul and opens the heart as wide as the landscape.

Clamber up and slide down the sand dunes for hours on end, meditate in the mystic Klipgat Cave, observe whales on a boat out in the bay or settle down to a convivial dinner around the long table. A holiday for body, soul and mind! Dinner is a special moment of the day. Settle down to sample the exquisite delicacies, chat with the others and let your gaze drift out to the millions of southern stars lighting the scene from above – of course, with a glass of the superb South African wine at hand.

An important element of the flower safari experience is that the owners are dedicated to sustainability and creating a future for all to enjoy. The Green Future Project introduces adolescents to the underlying principles and offers trainings in horticulture and nature tourism.
