Grootbos Nature Reserve Activities

For whale enthusiasts, this coastline offers an unsurpassed marine experience. Up to 160 of the 350 Southern Right Whales that migrate to the southern coast make Walker Bay their home between the months June to December. The De Kelders cliffs, which are a stones throw away from Grootbos, offer the best land-based whale viewing in the world. The whales make the bay a constant hub of activity. Watch in awe as mothers, calves and bulls come within a mere 30 meters of the shoreline. A custom built whale-watching boat called "The whale whisperer", will take guests on a marine big five adventure. Fifty ton Southern Right Whales will come within only meters from the boat. Guests will be able to view the underwater aerobatics of a Cape Fur Seal colony, comprising of up to 60 000 seals, the African Penguin, as well as plenty of dolphins and of course the great white shark. Specialist guides accompany guests on all nature activities. The area offers numerous pristine beaches and the crystal waters of the southern ocean. For those passionate about indigenous flora can go on guided walks with expert guides who will share their knowledge about the wonders of the South African fynbos, as well as the greater ecosystem that hosts plants, insects, birds, and mammals. Meandering paths through the ancient Milkwood forests allow guests to marvel at the thousand-year-old trees. Alternatively, visit one of the remnant Afro-montane forests on the reserve. Guests of every age can explore these natural wonders on foot, by four-wheel drive vehicle, or on horse back to enjoy the views from the elevation of a comfortable saddle on a well schooled horse or
