Our weekend stay at Bushman's Kloof Wilderness Reserve was out of this world. All of the staff are so friendly and attentive, wanting to make your stay the best it can be. We were a party of 6 and enjoyed a private dinner on the Saturday evening at Makana, which we will never forget. The views onto the pools and magnificent rocks are breathtaking. Michel, the assistant GM made us feel very special. Our guide, Stefan was outstanding and special mention has to be made of Charlie, who is just a delight but as I said ALL the staff are incredible. If you want to treat yourself to something special, do not hesitate. You can do as much or as little as you want. Trust me, you won't want to leave.

Our absolute favorite hotel in South Africa must be 12 Apostles because of their attention to detail but let me tell you, Bushman’s Kloof Wilderness Reserve can give their sister hotel a run for their money! We’ve spent 3 days here and this is 5 star treatment from the bottom to the top. Huge honor to have head guide Zenobia at our service, her knowledge and guidance was top notch. Chef Zanette made us a private 4 course dinner at Kadoro which was out of this world and helper “Vis” must be mentioned also. Service, excellence and absolute attention to detail from every single staff member here. We will certainly be back.

There’s getting away from it all to an island or a mountain top castle - and then there’s Bushman’s Kloof. A wilderness Lodge where there is no exaggeration in the description. Within five minutes of walking out on one of the many trails you are transported into an ancient world of rock and shrub where it is literally just you and the fauna and flora. No one else there. With a maximum of about thirty guests - it’s a getaway like no other. And yes, you do see 10000 year old cave paintings that have not been vandalised. The real deal is here. And to cap it all there’s full board with high tea thrown in and an environmental side to it all that gives you hope for the world. Amazing

We stayed here as the world was struggling with the Covid-19 virus so very difficult times for everyone concerned. Despite this backdrop the hotel and staff should be applauded for the friendly and professional manner in which they responded. We had a wonderful break, highlights included the stunning rock art from thousands of years back, dinner under the stars, cycling, canoeing and swimming to a picnic lunch under the rocks and the beautiful animals. Evan our guide looked after us fantastically with his expert knowledge and the food and drink back at the hotel led by Murray was consistently delicious, we really enjoyed the variety of dining and drinks locations. We are planning a return in hopefully more settled times.
