Honey Bee Spa in Platbos Forest


An adventure into the Southernmost indigenous forest at the tip of Africa with a Bee spa session in a unique hut built so humans can relax, rejuvenate and enjoy the health benefits of the Honeybee, without coming into direct contact with the bees. This magical experience is then rounded off with a sumptuous South African lunch and of course some natural honey tasting too.

Unique Pristine Forest

The Honey Bee SPA is situated just outside Gansbaai, Western Cape, in a pristine, uncommercialised forest – the only existing forest of its kind at the southernmost tip of Africa. You will experience a guided walk through the forest, listening to the most amazing facts about trees existing in this forest for hundreds of years.

A Spa to Remember

Then you indulge in a Spa session which allows you to relax while laying down and experience the sensory experience with the smells and sounds of the Honey Bee. Please note that humans and bees do not come into direct contact during this experience.

South African Lunch!

Once you have taken in this unique vegetation and unwound and relaxed you will enjoy a South African Lunch full of the local cuisine and of course some natural honey too.

This experience is unique for nature loving individuals and it has wonderful health benefits too.
