If you take the road from Cape Town in a northerly direction and drive for just under three 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 Lambert’s Bay with its moderate climate all year round. It is within walking distance of the Atlantic Ocean with its long, uninterrupted
white beaches. During the flower season from July to early October each year, the area is covered with a tapestry of 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’s dolphins, whales and seals frolicking in the blue waters a short distance from the beach.
