Luxurious contemporary styling gives this Gansbaai safari lodge an instant cosmopolitan appeal. Acclaimed for its conservation and social responsibility programs, this natural sanctuary has style to boot! Set amongst ancient Milkwood forest on the Grootbos private nature reserve, these free standing one- and two bedroom suites boast unbelievable views over the ocean and private viewing terraces from whence to drink it all in. The sun setting over Walker Bay is quite indescribable and I can't think of a better spot to conclude a day's hiking (sundowner in hand, of course).
My aching calves and hamstrings suggest that I've overdone the walking somewhat, so I head for the sumptuous Bloom Salon Spa for a full body massage. What a treat. Another is the Lodge's fine fusion menu: fresh fish, tender meats, home-grown veggies and herbs form the garden... food that's good for the soul, and a setting to match!
