Ticked every box for a romantic week-end away. Several enticing activities lost out to the allure of a cozy, fire-warmed library and an indulgent high-tea. To follow this with a sundowner game-drive to see all the new-born Springbok, Bontebok, Eland and Zebra foals grazing in the flower-filled veld with the Cedarberg as a backdrop was incredible. As we oo'd and... More

Review was written by my mom and dad. "Earlier in August my husband and I had the pleasure of visiting Bushman's Kloof for five days. We absolutely loved it. We were very warmly welcomed by Beth, Floris and Jannie who came out to greet us as we drove in. After a quick check in, we were escorted to our luxurious... More

An oasis in the Cedarburg mountains! Glorious setting, very comfy rooms, excellent linen, and friendly people make this a must getaway destination. Restaurant food was great (especially the wine pairing dinner - but breakfast was just OK in fact for a destination of this quality). Our evening nature drive was really enjoyable - space, fresh air, views and knowledgeable guide.... More

Luxury in the most stunning setting. Lots of attention to detail regarding rooms, outstanding service and wonderful food with many ingredients from the local garden made our stay very special. Plenty of hiking to do, bird watching, discovering rock art, canoeing and other activities in a safe environment makes this a dream location. We are filled with many happy memories... More

Great place, scenery, service, food, wine, bushman art, flora, animals. Peaceful but loads to do in an outdoorsee way. But it is pricy (ah!!! I didn't mean to quibble), and there really way too much food (ahh!!)

This is one of the most luxurious lodges in South Africa. The rooms are lush and palatial, the food is fantastic and the location is second to none. Down a dirt track, in the middle of the mountains, red sandstone and wind eroded desert land formations, ancient cave paintings, a spa by the banks of a small stream and a... More

Three and a half hours drive from Cape Town lies a 5 star Red Carnation Hotel in among the interesting rock formations of the Cedarberg. You are spoiled from the moment you arrive with mouth watering meals ( the high tea is quite divine , the dinners amazing), great staff attention and comfortable rooms.
