Lakes & Mountains
Nestled in the northern Cederberg Mountains - a South African Natural Heritage Site - Bushmans Kloof Wilderness Reserve & Wellness Retreat provides a luxurious base for exploration of this fascinating area. Visit the cultural and spiritual rock art left by the ancient Bushman tribes - mankind's oldest nation - before exploring the Heritage Centre, featuring a fascinating collection of priceless artefacts, jewellery, instruments and hunting kits. Breathe in the pure mountain air as you hike or bike past dramatic rock formations, crystalline waterfalls and stunning fauna, or canoe through the crystal-clear sandstone pools of the Ofliants River.
Boasting a glorious wilderness location alongside an exceptional conservation programme, Bushmans Kloof Wilderness Reserve & Wellness Retreat ensures a wildlife experience unlike any other. An animal saved from the brink of the extinction, one of the largest herds of the Cape Mountain Zebra roams the nearby plains, whilst the rare and secretive Cape Leopard inhabits the most remote mountains. Avid birdwatchers will be in paradise with over 150 species, whilst the wildlife reintroduction programme has seen the return of the magnificent Bontebok, Red Hartebeest and ostriches. Encounter these captivating creatures and enjoy ever-changing landscapes on a guided drive or walk of the nature reserve.
Combining utter luxury with a sense of seclusion, Bushmans Kloof Wilderness Reserve & Wellness Retreat offers a unique and intimate destination for a couple's retreat. Check-in to a stunning Riverside Supreme Suite and luxuriate in your private infinity pool or sensual outdoor shower, then discover your captivating surroundings as you stroll hand-in-hand through the botanical gardens or join an expert as you gaze at the stars in the clear night sky. Experience true romance with the Extraordinary Dining experiences and whether it's a secluded picnic on the riverbank or a lavish candlelit dinner in the walled garden, expect a culinary and romantic experience like never before.
