This 7,500-hactare private reserve just 270 kilometres north of Cape Town in the Western Cape and in the shadow of the Cederberg Mountains, Bushmans Kloof is a relaxed, convenient and scenically-striking alternative to the big game reserves of the north.
Waterfalls, large open plains carpeted in blooming flowers and fynbos, and a captivating landscape characterised by ancient rock formations are all what makes this reserve one you could explore and marvel at day after day, particularly with the myriad of activities available here.
Furthermore as per its name and a declared South African Natural Heritage Site you’ll find about 130 San Rock paintings throughout this reserve; ideal for enthusiasts of anthropology.
Malaria-free and with no large predators, Bushmans Kloof is a good option for families and in terms in wildlife the reserve protects one of the largest private herds of Cape Mountain Zebra in the world plus bontebok, cape leopard, red hartebeest, grey rhebok, ostrich, bat-eared fox, african wildcat, caracal, aardwolf, cape clawless otter, baboon, aardvark and 150 species of bird.
The choice of accommodation here comes in various sizes and options but always to the highest standards in luxury and service, hence why it’s on Conde Nast Travellers Gold List 2012 and was voted the Best Hotel in the World in 2009.
