Bushmans Kloof is a really exceptional place that we will definitely visit again. Excellent food, beautiful location, amazing staff, and great rooms help to make this a one of a kind experience. Also, their wine selection is truly excellent :)

We enjoyed 4 different food venues, quality amd choice at all were just fabulous. Facilities we used included game drives, rock art drives, 3 swim pools, mountain bikes and marked walks. Definitely a place to... More

One does not need to travel by air to have a five star, out of this world experience. Bushmanskloof is a true GEM. We spent three nights there, on a family fun package.

Bushmans Kloof is a great place to unwind and relax. It is set in a wilderness area in the Cederberg Mountains and is home to several different antelope and cape zebra as well as rarely seen leopards. Accommodation is in very luxurious lodges. The price includes morning and evening game drives and walks to view the numerous rock art sites.... More

It was the very frist time for us not to stay at home for christmas, but the Bushmans Kloof staff made christmas to an unforgettable event for our family.

We stayed with friends in Koro Lodge a few miles away from the main lodge.

The worst thing about staying at Bushman's Kloof was that we'd stupidly only booked for two nights! Leaving Clan William you pass some beautiful scenery which prepares you for the stunning reserve that the 5 star accommodation is set in. Once through the gate the dirt road leads you to a very well hidden group of attractive white buildings that... More

What an amazing and breathtaking resort. The staff is incredibly friendly. On arrival you get your own Ranger who takes you through the reserve. We enjoyed the Bushman's drawings and especially liked the night drive with the excellent starwatching. I had a facial in the spa and it was the best I have ever had! Our room was located in...

Drove from CT for a two night stay. Loved every minute and the staff made me feel very welcome as a solo traveller. All meals are great from the mountain side BBQ, to the patio dinner. Guides were helpful so I could go on an early morning walk. My massage was fantastic. I will definitely return.

I have given this 5 stars as that is what it deserves, however, we travelled as two couples for a three night stay and sadly on the last two days the children descended.
