Grootbos Forest Lodge
Forest Lodge is found in the Grootbos Nature Reserve; a spectacular array of fynbos and forest-clad hills that overlook the whale-watching haven of Walker Bay, near Hermanus. Home of the "Marine Big 5" - whales, sharks, dolphins, seals and penguins; and with unparalleled floral diversity on the 1750-ha reserve, Grootbos offers you a one-of-a-kind luxury African experience.
