Grootvadersbosch Cabins

Built and unveiled in 2016, Grootvadersbosch has 11 family/hiker cabins that are located on a ridge, with forest on either side. The cabins are arranged in two rows, with the higher cabins having expansive views of the valley, while the lower cabins look on to the indigenous forest.

Built on an existing footprint, which used to be the site of the forestry staff accommodation, the cabins were made from reclaimed materials from the site, as far as possible, and are designed to have as low an impact on the area as possible.

Seven cabins are 4-sleepers while five are 5-sleepers, with two bedrooms, a kuierkamer (inside braai area), a fully equipped kitchen, and a lounge with a built-in fireplace. There is also an outside braai area at each unit.

Units 1-3 are built with Universal Access in mind (approved by CapeAble) and have garages, while units 8-11 also have garages.
