Grootvadersbosch Nature Reserve

Grootvadersbosch Nature Reserve

Built and unveiled in 2016, Grootvadersbosch has 11 family/hiker cabins that are located on a ridge, with forests on either side.

All 11 cabins are 4-sleepers, with two bedrooms, a kuierkamer (inside braai area), a fully equipped kitchen, and a lounge with a built-in fire place. There is also an outside braai area at each unit.

Hikers can enjoy the relatively easy three-to-four hour hike on the Bushbuck Trail, or the more challenging Grysbok Trail. This route wanders through mountain fynbos and indigenous forest, providing a shaded and relatively easy hike for all ages. The Grysboksirkel is a tougher hike, taking hikers out of the forest-covered valley, up the mountainside through the fynbos area, and on to the ridge of the hills bordering the Boosmansbos Wilderness Area. The hike is a loop back to the reserve road.
