Grootvlei Guest Farm
If you take the road from Cape Town in a northerly direction and drive for just under 3 hours, you will discover an oasis of luxury, comfort and warm hospitality on the West Coast – Grootvlei Guest Farm.
Grootvlei Guest Farm is situated 6km from the charming fishing village of Lamberts Bay with its moderate all year climate. It is within walking distance from the Atlantic Ocean, inviting you to take a stroll down the long stretch of uninterrupted white beach.
During the flower season from July to early October each year the area is covered with a tapestry of brightly coloured wild flowers.
Conservation of the dune vegetation has seen the return of small game and you will notice their footprints around the buildings. You may even spot a duikertjie or other buck on an early morning walk.
Birdwatchers will have a field day spotting a large variety of birds, and if you are lucky, you may see heaviside dolphins, whales and seals frolicking in the blue waters a short distance from the beach.
