My husband took me to Bushman's Kloof for my birthday. His choice was excellent! From the time we arrived at the resort, we were treated like royalty. We visited at the end of July and the choice of a room with a fireplace was an excellent idea. The room was spacious with all the luxuries and our amenities were replaced... More

Our visit to Bushmans Kloof was beyond anything we could have imagined. The accommodations were beautiful, food was exceptional, game and rock art drives were over the top! The staff were the most outstanding group of people we've ever met. So considerate, kind and professional. I look forward to our next visit to this marvelous place. M/M Salerno, Madison, WI,... More

From the moment we stepped onto the property we were treated to the most special and attentive service and were made to feel that we were the most special people there! The room simple but luxurious, and the food delicious. In between these treats we were taken on game drives, visits to Bushman painting sites and were amazed at the... More

We were blown away. The views & geography of the area are fabulous. Our room was super luxurious & service outstanding. High tea was a real treat & dinner in the old shepherds cottage in the mountains was amazing. This is a quiet, peaceful, blissful retreat with beautiful swimming pools, a delightful river & birdlife, lovely walks or places to... More

We stayed for three nights. What a stunning location, completely away from it all and surrounded by nature. From the moment we arrived we loved it. On arrival we received a warm welcome from our guide, receptionist and the General Manager. Wonderful drives with our guide to see the ancient rock art, breathtaking spring flowers and game including Cape Zebra.... More

We celebrated my birthday here in early August. The setting is simply magnificent and I can't wait to go back. The reserve is very special and we spent lots of time in the reserve looking at the beautiful flowers. This is a very special place to visit and you are spoilt from the minute you arrive until you depart. The... More

If there ever was a secret garden, this is it! Hidden away in the exquisite Cedarberg mountains in the Western Cape Is the Bushman's Kloof Lodge. A Relais & Chateau resort and deservedly so. From the warm welcome to the informative game drive, the ancient bushman paintings to the challenging mountain bike trails, from the exceptional food and wines presented... More
