We stayed 4 nights last week in a pool villa at Forest Lodge. We arrived from Cape Town to a warm welcome and our guide Bongani explained all that was on offer.
We booked it all from fauna and flora open vehicle safaris, to morning walks, to community projects run and supported by Grootbos, to great white shark cage diving to a 1h20 min scenic flight over the tip of Africa. Activity experiences were world lass.
Service was local, charming and attentive especially in the 2 special dinner locations we did; one a private dinner in the wine cellar and the other by fairy lights under the stars in the forest. Very atmospheric and a welcome change from the dinning room.
Wine was well priced with a good selection by the glass l. The menu was tasty and creative using allot of locally sourced ingredients.
We are very well traveled and traditional safari lovers and Grootbos really delivered all round.
Cannot wait to return.
