Just amazing
We stayed 3 nights in the Grootbos and spent an unforgettable time there. Everything was perfect. The staff was so friendly and helpful. The walks and the safari drive with the guide Tiaan were fantastic. Our cottage ( Nr.24 ) was great. The food was delicious. We hope really to come back soon. A big thank to the whole Grootbos Team for the wonderful stay.

Nettes Hotel in schöner Lage
Der letzte Preis den das Hotel gewonnen hat war 2009. Aus unserer Sicht liegt hier ein Sanierungsstau vor und man hält sich für mehr als man ist.
