Grootvadersbosch Nature Reserve
Please note that Scolopia cottage is closed to the public temporarily.
Scolopia is a wooden house that comfortably sleeps six guests in two bedrooms (one with a double bed and one with two single beds) and on a double sleeper couch in the lounge. It is located 500m from the reserve entrance on the edge of indigenous forest and near the start of a day hike. The house, named after an indigenous pear tree, has a well-equipped kitchen, bathroom and living room, as well as a shaded outdoor braai area. Guests must bring their own food, as there is no shop on the reserve. Firewood can occasionally be purchased at the reserve office but bring your own to be safe as supply from neighbouring farms is sporadic.. The water from the taps is naturally brown in colour and not polluted; however, it is advisable to boil it before drinking.
