Overview

At the foothills of the Cederberg Mountains, Bushmans Kloof Wilderness Reserve & Wellness Retreat is an ecological oasis within a roughly hewn and magical land. This spiritual retreat is a haven of staggering beauty and timeless tranquillity, where abundant wildlife roam free.  Offering a distinctive wilderness experience among wide open plains, ancient sandstone formations and crystal clear waterfalls, it is a place to feel the pulse of an extraordinary and ancient landscape and reconnect with nature and the essence of life.  Located only 270 km from Cape Town, the multi-award-winning lodge is a proud Relais & Châteaux member, and forms part of the family-run Red Carnation Hotel Collection. Sixteen luxurious and indulgently comfortable guest rooms and suites are each individually designed with natural materials and elegant finishes, offering breath taking views across the indigenous gardens. Koro Lodge, the private villa, is in a secluded corner of the reserve (4 km away from the Main Lodge). Welcoming children of all ages, this independently catered for villa is ideally suited to families and friends travelling together and includes the services of a personal chef and guide.  Lauded for its award-winning wine list and authentic Cape cuisine, Bushmans Kloof offers an extraordinary dining experience at any of the spectacular dining venues.
