My three friends and I had a fabulous experience! It was a cold and rainy but Daniel and his assistant Leno took excellent care of us providing blankets, hot water bottles and large green waterproof ponchos. Daniel is an excellent guide, so enthusiastic and knowledgeable. We examined many exquisite plants. Had much fun even in the rain! The tour of the Florilegium took our breath away! My friends had not been before and were stunned by the outstanding att and the vision and mission of its creation. this is my third visit I and I grow in appreciation ? We enjoyed our fynbos meal and the creativity of the menu items snd subtle flavors.
We had a fantastic tour and thoroughly enjoyed the delicious forage lunch at Bellavista afterwards. Would definitely recommend it!
The Fynbos drive was informative with stunning views. The museum with all the artwork is beautiful, we would have liked to have more information about the background of the artists and paintings . It wasn't really a guided tour. The lunch was excellent, well presented and tasty. We enjoyed the vist to Grootbos and hope you will have more opportunities for local people to have day visits to Grootbos nature reserve.
