‘Seated among the staggering beauty and timeless tranquility of an ancient land, deep in the heart of the Cederberg, you will feel the heartbeat of nature, hear the call of the wild and connect with the pulse of an extraordinary landscape. This is a place where abundant wildlife roam free , some of the species are highly endangered and where you can walk freely across the expanse of the reserve. You are able to hike, mountain bike, canoe, fly fish, paint, swim in natural rock pools or wonder at the rock art of an ancient society - the Bushmen, or may choose to simply do nothing at all. One thing is for certain, Bushmans Kloof will leave a footprint on your heart.’
‘Extraordinary dining in spectacular settings. New and exciting tastes that reflect the flavours of the Cederberg. Bushmans Kloof is the home of authentic Cape Cuisine and dining here is designed to seduce the tastebuds and engage all the senses. From cosy fireside dining at the Homestead and lazy summer lunches at Makana, to picnics in the reserve and braais (barbeques) at Embers under magical starry skies. We strive to create memorable moments that linger on the palate and touch the heart of every guest.’
‘Koro Lodge is the perfect escape from urban living. It’s a potent tonic for families seeking time out from the daily grind. This luxurious villa out in the reserve is a true home-away-from home, where the young ones can run around and play in a vast open space, and where everyone can unwind and enjoy family activities. It’s a haven of peace and tranquility, and the ultimate spot to enjoy quality time together. Comfortable and luxurious, the Koro experience comes complete with the services of a chef, hostess and a guide giving you the freedom to do as much, or as little as you wish. It really is ‘home.’
Bushmans Kloof is the custodian of over 130 unique rock art sites, some as old as 10,000 years. The sites on the reserve may be viewed by guests, archaeologists and researchers. Since its founding, Bushmans Kloof has been dedicated to protecting this extraordinary treasure. Accordingly, we have been awarded the status of a South African Natural Heritage Site.
In 2004, the Bushmans Kloof Heritage Centre was opened, featuring an extraordinary collection of priceless artefacts, jewellery, dancing sticks, hunting kits, musical instruments, digging sticks and magical paraphernalia.
‘Kadoro’ means ‘tinderbox of stories’, a poetic and fitting name for this rustic, secluded cottage in the heart of the reserve. Originally an old shepherd’s house, the structure has been renovated and furnished, but not modernised. Kadoro has no electricity; outside, the starlit Cederberg Mountains wend their way into the distance under clear night skies. Enjoy this rural setting alongside an exquisite culinary experience of delicious braaivleis (barbecues) or wholesome soups and stews.
The surroundings are therapy in themselves, but The Spa is the focus of the abundant natural healing energy one experiences at Bushmans Kloof. It’s a peaceful sanctuary where one can surrender to the ancient mystical powers of the African landscape, rejuvenate all your senses, replenish your spirit and achieve deep inner peace and harmony. We are dedicated to restoring beauty and balance through individual treatments and Spa journeys, personalised for each of our guests by exceptionally skilled therapists. Our commitment to wellbeing focuses on holistic principles, combining ancient wisdom with modern expertise in a natural environment.
