Grootbos is passionate that guests experience an authentic, indigenous visit. It co-founded the Walker Bay Fynbos Conservancy, which is home to 765 fynbos species. Its mission is to conserve and rehabilitate the fynbos kingdom and promote the human potential of the region. From rides on horseback through the sweeping fynbos plains to exploring the ancient milkwood forests or whale watching, your experience is authentic of Grootbos and our region. The commitment to the community and culture of Walker Bay was formalised in 2003 with the establishment of the Grootbos Foundation. Environmental and social development programmes are strategically and aesthetically incorporated in the Grootbos experience, enjoyed first-hand by each visitor:

  • Green Futures horticulture students landscaped the indigenous gardens
  • Growing-the-Future Organic Farm’s team of seven provides farm-fresh vegetables and micro-herbs, free range eggs, fynbos honey and bottled water
  • The Candlemaking Initiative recycles 5kg of waste wax daily to create authentic Grootbos candles
  • The pristine fynbos plains are maintained and cleared of alien species by local marginalised residents (61 jobs created)
  • There is the chance to sponsor and plant a tree (over 2750 planted to date)
