How important is Conservation at Grootbos?
The Grootbos Foundation
From its very inception, The Grootbos Private Nature Reserve based in the Overberg was always going to be more than a luxury travel destination.
The Grootbos Foundation was set up in 2003 as a non-profit organisation that would work to conserve the critically endangered fynbos, while also focusing on the training and skills development of the surrounding communities.
Their Projects focus on Community. Culture. Commerce. Conservation.
They are an organisation dedicated to empowering others through ecotourism, enterprise development, sports development and education.
All of their projects are replicable and scalable, with many generating their own income or becoming partially self-sustaining. From beekeeping to animal husbandry, recycling candles to coaching soccer, computer training to clearing alien vegetation, each programme has been carefully considered to build a brighter future for the people who live there, as well as the environment.
