Although we were only able to spend two days at the Grootbos Forest Lodge, those two days were packed with activities, beautiful scenery, and a clear mission on behalf of the company to support and give back to the local community. We hiked, saw whales breaching, visited seaside caves, toured the on-site farm and university and enjoyed spectacular views while partaking in beautifully prepared meals using local ingredients. The staff went above and beyond to ensure that our short stay was perfect. The rooms were unbelievable private cottages with views of the nature reserve and the ocean. And we were assigned a staff member on arrival whose role it was to schedule our activities, act as our tour guide and answer all of our questions, which Anecke did for us in spades.
