Seated at the foothills of the Cederberg Mountains, Bushmans Kloof Wilderness Reserve & Wellness Retreat is a luxurious ecological oasis where abundant wildlife roam free. A South African Natural Heritage Site, it is custodian to 130 ancient Bushman rock art sites. As part of the family-run Red Carnation Hotel Collection, it’s famed for splendid luxury, generous hospitality, creative cuisine and warm hospitality, with 16 guest rooms and suites, and a private villa. Guests may rejuvenate at the Spa, engage in outdoor activities, or do absolutely nothing but inhale the beauty of nature.
In this paradise rich in biodiversity, the leopard and mountain zebra are kings.
Home to a great variety of plant and animal species, some in threat of extinction, the biodiversity found at the foot of the Cederberg Mountain is three times richer than that found in the Amazon forest. This exceptional, bountiful biotope is not only celebrated in the superb culinary spread prepared by the head chef, but it also forms part of conservation projects which aid sustainability of the land, ensuring that it remains a sanctuary for endangered leopard, mountain zebra, yellow fish and cedar trees. Relais & Châteaux also supports local community projects, which include the local museum, primary school and various homes for the aged.
