this was our fourth visit at the bushmanskloof and we have enoyed this wonderful, quiet amazing place once again! Staff are friendly and all the cuisine preper was delicious. The Boma, with a crackeling fire and a glas of wine, the buffet at the homestead, Rock Art walks, the Pool...our Guide Zenobia...she did a great job.

Being at home again and having a review on our phantastic visit in Bushman's Kloof, it seems as if we had only a dream. Already the way from the winelands up to the Ceder Mountains was very impressing. We stayed two nights in that amazing hotel and had such a warm welcome, like coming home to friends.

I can highly recommend Bushmans Kloof as a peaceful, luxurious place to stay. The location is dramatic, with lots of wildlife to see at close quarters and the Rock paintings are very interesting. The food is wonderful and surroundings are really beautiful. There are some good walks, though one in particular is quite challenging. The staff are friendly, helpful and... More

I have visited Bushman's Kloof before it was sold to the Tollman family who own the Red Carnation Hotel group. It was fascinating then, and to go on a walk into the caves and see the wall paintings was a revelation. Since the acquisation by Red Carnation, the establishment has become one of South Africa's leading hotels, which is reflected... More

We spent two days at the hotel and thoroughly enjoyed it. The management was great, the high tea superb, the food really nice and the spa and the treatments are really great. All in all a very nice experience and I will return.

Stayed for 4 nights (at the same time as 187069Chris who got married there). Wonderful accommodation and food. Staff were exceptional, including Seppi, our guide. An experience we will never forget, visiting San Rock Art caves in the morning and sunset drives in the late afternoon. The resort is remote, quiet and extremely comfortable, the staff attentive and discrete -... More

We had 4 nights at Bushmans Kloof last week. It was our 3rd stay there and it was every bit as wonderful as we remembered. It is the most perfect place to get away and truly relax and be pampered.
