“This award-winning Relais & Chateaux wilderness reserve and wellness retreat is like one giant open-air museum. Don’t come here for the big five; rather, come for days filled with walking, mountain biking, canoeing, conservation, painting and swimming in glass-clear natural rock pools. The rooms are designed with rich fabrics, unique artworks, and a private terrace, and the superb spa - a sanctuary for the stressed and world-weary - is the ideal place for restoring mind and spirit.”
Tucked in the foothills of the Western Cape’s Cederberg Mountains, Bushmans Kloof Wilderness Reserve and Wellness Retreat is an ecological oasis. Both a Relais & Chateaux property and one of National Geographic’s Unique Lodges of the World, this private reserve is home to over 130 ancient Bushmen rock art sites and is a predator-free haven for abundant game.
Bushmans Kloof accommodates up to 34 guests in a variety of rooms, suites and private villas. The elegantly appointed rooms are individually designed with rich fabrics, unique artworks, and a private terrace. The Riverside Supreme Suite and private villas have their own pools.
The restaurants serve authentic Cape cuisine with Asian and Mediterranean influences, complemented by a superb wine list. Dine at the Homestead or one of two open-air pavilions.
Highlights include exploring the Bushman rock art sites and roaming freely in a predator-free reserve. Guests can also go hiking, biking, canoeing, wine tasting and enjoy guided botanical walks.
