The Cape Floral Kingdom, although the smallest of the world’s six kingdoms, boasts unmatched levels of diversity, with more than three times the floral species of the Amazon Jungle. Subjected to scorching summer sun, nutrient-poor soils and recurring veld fires, the Cape Flora known as Fynbos prospers defiantly in the face of natural adversity. Feast on the finest cuisine and locally sourced wines while watching spectacular sunsets over the ocean; treat yourself to a rejuvenating spa treatment in our ancient forest; or join a specialized guide to discover the wonders of this floral and marine paradise by foot, horseback, 4×4, boat or plane! Several activities are included and there are many additional options. If you are more of a thrill-seeker, consider cage-diving to chance a close-up encounter with the Great White Sharks! This optional activity is offered nearby (weather dependent, not included). Overnight at Grootbos Forest Lodge
