Grootbos Nature Reserve


Grootbos is a private reserve located between Hermanus and Gansbaai (about a 2-hour drive from Cape Town). Its claim to fame is its diversity of fynbos flora (more than 740 plant species) and its 20 miles (30 km) of pristine, deserted beaches that can be traversed either on foot or horseback. Grootbos is also an excellent place if you are planning several nautical activities, including whale watching, boat excursion to see seal colonies, and dives with great white sharks.
