R43 Between Stanford and Gansbaai, 7220, South Africa
The Cape Floristic Region - where Grootbos is found - is the smallest of the world's six floral kingdoms, and found only here, in South Africa's western Cape, a couple of hours from Cape Town. A region of extraordinary biodiveristy diversity, it is home to over 9, 000 plant species, of which 69 percent are endemic. Grootbos offers 'flower safaris' to discover this unique floral kingdom. But if flowers aren't you're thing - or you;ve been clever enough to book for a few days, then there's some very special stuff happening off shore. This is one of the best places in the world for land based whale watching, or you can jump on a boat for a trip to view the marine 'Big 5', Southern White Whales, Great White Sharks, African Penguins, Bottlenose Dolphins and Cape Fur Seals. And the accommodation - which wins countless awards for its environmental and social credentials, is discreet boutique luxury, blending in with its very special landscape.
