Grootbos Nature Reserve Social Influence

Grootbos Nature Reserve Social Influence

On a social influencing trip throughout South Africa, I was amazed with the nature and experiences I had at Grootbos private nature reserve in Gansbaai, near Walker Bay.

Being the third resort/lodge on my itinerary, I was at the equivalent of hump day in a 5-day work week. Mid point does not accurately describe Grootbos, it’s more like high point. I was very impressed with the graciousness, kindness and pleasantness of everyone working there. Not a few people that had to be nice, but genuine authentic pleasantness from Everyone I encountered. One had said she wanted me to experience Grootbos the right way! And I did, the sensitive way, the patient way, the gentle way in which it was formed and is sustained by the Lord Jesus Christ.

When I arrived, the Ranger Jono greeted me with almost giddy excitement. Not because I was there but because he loves Grootbos that much. Now each lodge and resort I visited on my March 2016 South Africa social influencing trip has its own charm, beauty and wonderful people. But with the greeting from Grotbos, combined with sincerity behind the eyes, you know it’s going to be special stay.

We were able to obtain several of these images specifically because we had a vehicle in this case a Rover for specifically for creating unique images to make a difference to the hundreds of thousands of people that are seeing them.
