My husband and I spent 3 glorious days and nights last week at the Bushmans Kloof Wilderness Reserve in the Cederberg, Western Cape. We have heard many good reports of this hotel and Spa over the years, but it truly exceeded our expectations! Firstly, we didn't expect to see wild flowers in the month of October, as spring flower attraction months are August and September - but we were bowled over by the thrilling sight of carpets of flowers all over the Reserve. Our guide (Gerhard) was absolutely excellent with his vast knowledge of flora, fauna, geology, and - totally new for us - information about Bushman paintings, of which there are numerous excellent ones that he took us to see. The animals on the Reserve are all in good health and we saw many different species of buck (one herd of at least 60 Eland) and birds. I was treated to a magical session at the Spa, and Nikki (the beauty therapist) was highly professional and an inspiration. And the accommodation and cuisine were deliciously memorable. We look forward to going again - hopefully next year!
