What an amazing place. Although I suspect it would be too hot for us in summer. we went in August (spring) Hidden well away in the cederberg mountains the guides and tours opened our eyes to what an amazing environment this is. Our own small lodge was perfect The main lodge is furnished to a very high standard with antiques.The... More

Wonderful farm and exceptional scenery. Staff are all extremely courteous and prepared to go the extra mile. Food cannot be faulted and all meals are special occasions. A visit must be on every travellers bucket list. Although we visited in the wildfower season we saw very few flowers on the farm

We stayed three nights, and found the facilities and food options to be first rate. All the staff encounters were good and leaves you with sense that they care about their guests experiences whilest staying at the reserve. The reserve does not leave you with much to do and you are encouraged to utulise the spa and game drives. The... More

Our travel agent booked us in for 2 nights in the Koro Lodge at the start of our holiday in SA, and it couldn't have been a better choice. The accommodation was spacious for 5 adults, the service was impeccable and all the staff were welcoming and friendly. Our guide was knowledgeable, and went out of her way to make... More

The Kloof has over 130 rock drawings from the San people thousands of years old. The ones I visited took some effort but not overly so and I am 60+. The guides (Seppie) knew everything and could and would answer any questions. The Kloof does have animals but there are no predators. So one can hike, bike, canoe or just... More

So if you ever have the opportunity to spoil yourself and indulge this is the place! From the moment you book to when you leave you will be treated as special. These people get customer service and natural customer service. Wonderful setting, to die for food and everything has been thought of. It was worth every cent.

I'm late in posting this review. We visited Bushmans in February 2016. I worked very hard to convince my husband to take me to Bushmans Kloof. He has a limit as to what an overnight should cost so you can imagine the struggle I had... well it was so incredibly amazing that my husband was about to call my parents... More

Fabulous place with swimming pools water features, lovely gardens, excellent vegetable garden, good food and spa. The game drives were extremely interesting and Christiaan seemed to enjoy sharing his knowledge of the animal, birds, vegetation and bush paintings. Enjoyed the mountain biking too. Would... More

Wow what a wonderful place....there are no words. Meals were amazing gourmet experiences, all staff attentive and felt pampered! Rooms outstanding, spacious, extremely clean, with attention to detail! The perfect touch was a after game viewing drive, drinks were supplied at a most beautiful spot and nature provided an outstanding sunset!
