A quite stunning location and extremely peaceful. You are able to do as much or as little as you please. One of the delightful features was the variety of locations for meals and the simple but tasty cuisine. Everything was to the highest standards. We have already recommended it to friends.

The Koro Lodge at Bushmans Kloof is about 3 hours drive north of Cape Town and even if you have to hitch hike or walk there it is worth the effort and a wonderful relaxing experience in a wilderness reserve of peace and tranquility, The lodge is a large converted farm house with views over the Bushmans Kloof wilderness.

My boyfriend and I stayed two nights at Bushmans Kloof. Arriving at the resort - with its white lodges amidst massive blue gum trees - was like coming to paradise. We were welcomed by Portia, who was so lovely and made us feel at home and relaxed. The décor and level of detail at the resort is incredible. The highlights... More

This was something different from what we expected but a good experience. The gardens and surroundings are wonderful, the staff excellent and the food very good. The rooms and dining areas, restaurant are very well designed and looked after to a high standard. Don't miss afternoon tea. The highlight for me were the trips to view the ancient rock paintings....

My partner and I spent three nights in this wonderful oasis in the middle of nowhere. We stayed in a luxury room with a small private patio, close to one of the four swimming pools.

We stayed 4 nights with our almost 9 year old daughter. An extremely well-managed, stylish wilderness resort which would suit people of all ages from 8 upwards with a sense of adventure. Very scenic location with spectacular night-time views of the Milky Way. All staff (dining, guides, spa, reception, cleaning etc) well-trained, well-informed, well-spoken, friendly and proactive. Our daughter took... More

Bushman's Kloof is probably the most relaxing place in South Africa. It is situated in the Cederberg mountains near Clanwilliam and is a very private resort set in beautiful surroundings. The accommodation is to the highest possible standard and one is treated as an honored guest from the moment you arrive until you reluctantly depart. There are many activities but... More

Everything excellent especially the food(chocolate pearls: out of this world), set up and service. Arrive early since you need time to just sit at the pool and take in the scenery. Very private, very exclusive! Expensive, but worth it! Great guides on game drives, all the animals interesting to watch-mating/dancing/fab bushman tea. Everyone willing to go the extra mile for...

A perfect combination of luxury enriched with unspoilt nature. A true wilderness luxury sanctuary. You are spoilt from the moment you drive into the Lodge where the porter gets your bags and drops them off to your room and another staff member quietly veers your car to the parking bay. The guides are very well informed of their surroundings and... More
