Extend your safari with an immersion in the natural wonders of the Western Cape, spending three nights at a luxury ecolodge base on the Grootbos Private Nature Reserve. Where the mountains and forest roll down to the sea, explore a vast tract of pristine wilderness, with thousand-year-old trees, 100 endangered plant species, 20 different mammals and the Marine Big Five—not to mention exquisite accommodations and hospitality. Leaving Cape Town, wind along the scenic South Atlantic coast to reach Betty’s Bay, home of the Stony Point penguin colony. The journey continues to the Grootbos Reserve, edging the unspoiled shores of Walker Bay not far from Cape Agulhas, the most southerly point in Africa. Amid the rare Cape floral plant kingdom and ancient milkwood forest, a host of activities awaits, from whale watching to horseback riding, mountain biking, and botanical safaris by 4x4 and on foot.
