The Bushmans Kloof Wilderness Reserve is a stunning highlight located about two and a half hours north of Cape Town. It features pristine wilderness and spectacular landscapes.
Huge, open plains alternate with amazing waterfalls and ancient rock formations, some of which sport 10.000 year old rock paintings.
Completely malaria-free, the Bushmans Kloos is nestled between the majestic Cedar Mountains and the endless plains of the Great Karoo and has enjoyed its protected status since 1992.

private Bushmans Kloof Reserve is world-famous for its rock arts and was declared a South African Natural Heritage Site because of its cultural, historic and ecological importance.
Immerse yourself in the history, pristine nature and magical flair of the Wilderness Reserve. We recommend a stay of two or three nights – there is so much to explore!
Despite the wilderness setting, you do not need to do without a certain level of comfort: A member of the renowned Relais & Châteaux chain, the Bushmans Kloof provides extremely luxurious accommodation.
The main building features two lounges, one of them with a satellite TV. Moreover, a library, a billiard room, bar and a wine-cellar are at your disposition.
On a fine day, the meals are served beneath the star-strew heavens, open-air on the deck. However, the main building also accommodates a dining room for all eventualities.
Another option is the gracious Makana restaurant that serves lip-smacking delicacies with a beautiful view over the Boontjes River.
The Embers restaurant is set in an amphitheatre that was naturally formed in sandstone. The atmosphere among the bizarre rock formations is simply magical, especially at night, when a campfire cast light and shadow on the rocks.
The Embers serves exquisite specialities prepared with fresh ingredients. Many of the vegetables and herbs are grown in the restaurant’s own herb and vegetable patch.
Furthermore, the Bushmans Kloof features four beautifully designed swimming pools (one of them heated), a sauna and a spa. The facilities are delightful and even though the focus might be on outdoor activities, you can certainly spend a good time at the Bushman’s Lodge.
