GIVEAWAY: Grootbos Private Nature Reserve

February 23, 2015

grootbos-nature-reserve
Last week Shane, Nina James and I made our way 2 hours out of Cape Town to the beautiful Grootbos Private Nature Reserve in Gansbaai.

I have been wanting to go to Grootbos Private Nature Reserve for ages. I have double tapped Instagrams of this magical place and I’ve swooned over it online and finally I got a chance to spend a couple of days on this amazing piece of land in the heart of an ancient Milkwood Forest.

During our visit we got to stay at Grootbos’ beautiful Garden Lodge. The luxury suites are so nicely put together and every room within them has been considered and decorated with a more than tasteful eye. I was so impressed with all the personal touches, from the teddy bear they tucked into Nina’s bed, to the small Milkwood plant that they left addressed to Shane and I, so that we could take a piece of Grootbos home with us.

We had such a special stay, we ate like Kings and we were treated like Kings by all the staff, they were so friendly and helpful and so genuinely amped to do whatever they could to make our stay more enjoyable.

We spent 2 nights at Grootbos and we were spoilt rotten. We went on a guided tour through the Milkwood forrest, we had an epic picnic on the beach with a basket full of all sorts of treats, including 3 different meals for Nina James (so sweet of them)! I went on a horseback ride and was treated to the most beautiful views and I got to meet and chat to one of the owners Mr Michael Lutzeyer, who is an inspirational (and very energetic) man that isn’t just the head of this beautiful establishment, but also one of the driving forces behind all it’s amazing conservation and future building initiatives.

I really loved my stay at Grootbos and I can’t wait to go back and do a few more activities that we didn’t have a chance to do this time around, like whale watching and the guided cave tour. They also have shark cage diving, which Shane kept telling me he was amped to do, but somehow avoided actually going through with it haha! Now that is something I would be way too scared to do, even though it would probably be so damn exciting. I would probably faint from anxiety before I even got my wetsuit on!

And speaking of exciting, I have some exciting news for you guys. Grootbos Private Nature Reserve has given me a two-night all inclusive 5-Star luxury stay in their one of their Forrest Lodge suites (which are beyond amazing) to give to one of you guys and a partner.

      This past weekend was my twin sister’s wedding. My folks, being the most amazing people that they are organised the whole thing and paid for most of it 😉 ! My mother needs special mention in that she made almost everything for the special event: she spent 6 month hand beading and sewing together the most exquisite dress you’ll ever see, made 90 napkins. 12 overlays, 12 centre pieces for the tables, countless drapes for the venue, 20 scatter cushion covers for the venue, the wedding cake (3 tier), three brides made dresses, organic rose petal, rosemary and lavender confetti; not to mention countless days spent shopping around for the perfect pre-reception cocktail glasses, desert table decor, and the flowers…. right now she is still working, delivering goods back to hiring companies, packing away all the decor we bought for the wedding, washing napkins and pillow covers all in this 41 degree heat! My mother is incredible! After all her hard work my mother deserves her own relaxing hunny moon. I actually looked into booking here for my folks for their 30th wedding anniversary last year but could not afford it so if I could win and give them this gift I would be so grateful and know my mom would absolutely love it!

        it sounds like paradise. I would take my husband , who has recently experienced the worst six months of his and our life. Closed our business, he was diagnosed with early onset Alzheimer’s and prostate cancer. Unbelievable , what the human soul can endure. A break like this would benefit us both immensely at this time.

          Hi Trish,

          Was just scrolling through a couple of the comments and saw yours. I am SO sorry to hear this. My Dad also has prostate cancer…let this not be an anxiety that eats at your soul…his has been under wraps for 12 years now. As for the early onset Alzheimer’s…again my thoughts and prayers go out to you as 2 very close family friends have been diagnosed the same.

    On top of all that, I know that he is planning to pop the question this year, since we are finally at a point in our lives when we can consider marriage, but I know he’ll want to do it somewhere special and I am not sure when or how that can happen.

    I would love to treat my husband to this weekend away. Our year started with a bang. He, at the age of 34 was diagnosed with stage 3 cancer. He starts chemotherapy in the next few weeks and this would be a lovely treat to do just before reality of this illness kicks in. Grootbos is beautiful and it’s always been on our bucket list, the bucket list has been shredded down to size and we would love to do as much as we can together. Much love <3 x

    Nice genuine review of a lovely place, love the pictures.
    I would take my wife and newborn on a babymoon ( her word, not mine – it is a silly word). I’m a little concerned though that winning this would cause my wife to vibrate uncontrollably with excitement until she synced with a parallel universe ( perhaps ruled by natzis?) and winked out of existence, which would make it a bittersweet experience.

    We have been chatting about doing something together for some sisterly bonding and a shared birthday gift for one another before I jetset off… and this adventure of doing a guided tour through the Milkwood forest; an epic picnic on the beach; horseback riding; shark cage diving; whale watching; guided cave tours and more all sounds too good to just let slide.

    Not to mention the fresh fruit served daily, the breakfast and lunch buffets, the 5 course dinners and what, 4×4 flower safaris?! Hello.

    If I win, I’d take my mother, who is my soul-mate and a light in my life. She is a fighter and a warrior, and she forgets to take a breather and look after herself. Please pick me so that I can pick her. I am a freelance travel/wildlife photographer, and do this because travel and the great outdoors make this crazy ride worthwhile. I am also a super social media user, so it would be a win-win situation for Grootbos and for me! Picking a winner is going to be tough. You’ve got your work cut out for you. Good luck!

    This past weekend was my twin sister’s wedding. My folks, being the most amazing people that they are organised the whole thing and paid for most of it ! My mother needs special mention in that she made almost everything for the special event: she spent 6 month hand beading and sewing together the most exquisite dress you’ll ever see, made 90 napkins. 12 overlays, 12 centre pieces for the tables, countless drapes for the venue, 20 scatter cushion covers for the venue, the wedding cake (3 tier), three brides made dresses, organic rose petal, rosemary and lavender confetti; not to mention countless days spent shopping around for the perfect pre-reception cocktail glasses, desert table decor, and the flowers…. right now she is still working, delivering goods back to hiring companies, packing away all the decor we bought for the wedding, washing napkins and pillow covers all in this 41 degree heat! My mother is incredible! After all her hard work my mother deserves her own relaxing hunny moon. I actually looked into booking here for my folks for their 30th wedding anniversary last year but could not afford it so if I could win and give them this gift I would be so grateful and know my mom would absolutely love it!

    Hi there, first of all I’ve been dreaming of going to grootbos for the pass year. But been saving my money to give my mom a 60th dinner with family and friends . I’ve been checking their website regularly to find any specials but needed to pay the deposit for the 60th recently. And even just today popped through and got my mom a dress on sale by one the clothing retailers. She is quite excited about her 60th so been saving every penny to make her evening very special. For this reason I’ve not been able to splurge on a holiday for myself, I would love to win and be able to go with my fiance. As you can see I’m already following them on Twitter. I am not registered on Facebook and hope that I can still qualify by retweeting your tweet and following you on Twitter. Thank you

    When I was nine, and I used to live in Cape Town, my parents got divorced and my dad moved up to Johanneburg. When he could, he would come down to visit and take me on wild and wacky outings all around Cape Town to cheer me up in the best way that he knew how. We ate fish and chips in newspaper cones at Snoekies on the rocks. We boogie boarded in the ice cold sea at Muizenburg, after hitting Muizenburg slides. We drove up to the Kruger Park spending hours looking for animals. We took long walks (often getting lost) along Silvermine and Kirstenbosch Gardens. We cycled up Chapmans Peak pretending that we were fit enough to do so. We we stayed in hidden bed and breakfasts around Cape Town, just for fun. Every week that Marcel’s ice cream shop in Hout Bay changed it’s flavours, we had to go and sample the new ones, discussing in detail what we were going to try and with which toppings on the way there. And it really did cheer me up – I would live for our outings. Now that over ten years have passed, and I live in the same suburb as my pops – try as we may – we never do any cool outings together. I miss those times, and I would love to take my dad on an outing for a change. A surprise road trip to Cape Town, to stay at Grootbos Private Nature Reserve!
