The Main Lodge at Bushmans Kloof Reserve is the hub of the reserve with 16 beautiful suites spread widely out around The Homestead where you’ll find sitting rooms, a bar, wine cellar, restaurant, outdoor boma, library, pool, heritage centre, spa and fitness centre.

Set into a natural depression of the particularly magical terrain at Bushmans and surrounded by manicured lawns and verdant gardens which contrast heavily with the reserve’s rocky backdrop, this Relais and Chateaux property boasts four different groupings of rooms.

Seven luxury rooms come in either double or twin all with their own private patios looking onto the lawns. Another seven deluxe rooms include the two luxurious suites of the Manor House, of which the two-bedroom Niven suite is well-suited for a family. The Paterson suite has its own patio, separate sitting room, fireplace and spectacular views of the river and mountains. At the top is the Riverside Supreme Suite with a separate living room and its own private infinity pool.

A high level of luxury and stylishly modest taste runs through all the suites’ interiors, making your stay feel very comfortable, authentic and discerningly discreet.

Dinner at the Embers Boma is not an experience you are likely to forget in a hurry.
