Anyone who’s ever driven from Stanford to Gansbaai (on the Cape Coastal route in South Africa that is!) would have noticed the sign to Grootbos on the left about halfway there! The modest sign belies the exquisite nature of this place, a gem on the whalecoast of South Africa!
Angie Durrant, over at The Lucky Pony blog is giving away a 5-star escape for two to this stunning destination. Head over to her blog, ‘like’ the Grootbos Facebook page and the Lucky Pony Facebook page, share the Grootbos Giveaway post and you’re on your way to be a contender for this marvellous prize!
See more of what Grootbos has to offer over here. If you thought that going into nature would be rough-and-tumble, think again! This is sustainable eco-tourism, 5-star luxury and breaking away rolled together in a style not oft repeated.
The region, Hermanus, Stanford & Gansbaai are rich in offerings, ranging from mountain hikes with incredible views over Walker Bay, beach walks all the way from Sandbaai to Pearly Beach, whale watching in spring and summer, incredible fynbos, wildlife, with leopard sightings not unheard of, surfing, swimming, kayaking and even shopping (gasp!) at the markets in the area. No wonder it’s fast growing in popularity as both a weekend and holiday destination.
