It does not get better than this, we booked a four night stay at this absolutely stunning resort. Off the beaten track in the middle of nowhere this establishment lives up to its reputation. We arrived 2pm on a Wednesday afternoon and were warmly greeted by Nicole who explained everything and gave us a tour of the resort. After unpacking... More

We spent 3 days at Bushmanskloof during January. The welcome was warm, the service excellent in every way, our room luxurious with everything to ensure a comfortable stay and the environment is beautiful. The food is excellent - every meal was an experience. We travelled with our 12-year old son and he loved every minute. The layout of the establishment... More

We spent three nights at BK and enjoyed it immensely. Perfect way to unwind in gorgeous surroundings. There is plenty to keep busy or you can just hang out. The food was plentiful and very good, and the dining areas were on par with the best. Our room was a bit dark and small and the shower head was inadequate... More

Dear travellers, of course the Garden Route is the most known Route through South Africa. But please have a special look to the Western Cape region, especially the Atlantic Ocean and then the way up into the Cederberg Mountains. Here you will find one of the most exciting place I ever saw! Bushmans Kloof is a wonderful Reserve in the... More

From our pick up from our hotel in Constantia, with Herbert the driver, things just got better and better. Driving in to the lodge is amazing as you are literally in the middle of nowhere and transported to paradise. The room was a little tired and needed updating but that didn't affect anything. The wildlife was great, but do not... More

Bushman's Kloof is a wonderful retreat, far from the madding crowd, a haven of peace and tranquiliity. The accommodation is superb, the food is delicious, the staff are very friendly and helpful and the whole place is wonderful. The setting is amazing, beautiful gardens and pools, there are only 16 rooms so it is a small and lovely place. We... More

I cannot rave about Bushmans Kloof more and it should be on everyone's itinerary visiting SA. We visited with our 11 yr old daughter and spent 3 days of utter heaven at this magical spot.

This place is magical! When we finally got to the gate after a long drive from the winelands, the sign said '8km'...the hotel really is in the wilderness! Being close to nature, and hearing the sound of the birds and the gentle sound of the water were so relaxing. The early starts to see the cave art were not to... More
