We travelled to South Africa in February 2014 and spent quite some time along the Garden Route. At the end of the road trip we stayed two nights at the beautiful Grootbos resort. Grootbos lies about a 2.30 h drive from Capetown at the Walker Bay Nature Reserve. During our stay lots of free tours were offered, one of them endeavoring the Grootbos flowers around the premises. We saw a lot of proteas, the signature flower of South Africa and even managed to see a long-tailed cape sugarbird (see picture below). The flora around Walker Bay Nature Reserve is really stunning and worth a trip.
