Bushmans Kloof - Family Fun in South Africa's Spectacular Setting


Bushmans Kloof Wilderness Reserve and Retreat is surely the most beautiful luxury family wilderness lodge in the Cederberg (270 km from Cape Town). A family idyll, loved by children and parents alike, this escape is a safe sanctuary for flora and fauna, and is surrounded by ancient rock art and untamed beauty, open plains, crystal waterfalls and deep ravines. The gardens are a delight and children love the wide-open spaces.

Bushmans Kloof recognises that parents and their children should be able to enjoy a break, separately and together - finding time to spend as a family, as a couple, and by your self. Enjoy this fun-filled Family Affair and discover the wonders of nature's fairground, and the enriching opportunity to learn more about the Bushmen's culture and Mother Nature's secrets.

Mom and dad will have ample free time to enjoy the five-star facilities, ranging from invigorating spa treatments and relaxing in the library, to romantic dinners and the fascinating Bushmans Kloof Heritage Centre. Or they may want to join the children mountain biking, hiking through the reserve, or swimming in the crystal clear rock pools. Luxurious accommodation, caring service, delicious Cape cuisine and soothing spa treatments make this the ideal escape to restore, relax and be pampered.

Children learn all about animals, plants, birds and the Bushmen - their rock art, hunting techniques and animal tracking. Other child-friendly activities include canoeing, fishing, creating 'rock art', as well as camping out with experienced guides.

Early children's supper is served daily, after which guides and child-minders entertain the kids with night walks, game drives or movies, while parents enjoy leisurely gourmet dinners served in various stunning settings and dining locations at the lodge.

Bushmans Kloof offers a unique wilderness experience. Ranked among the 101 finest hotels in the world by the prestigious UK Tatler 2008 Travel Guide, the beautifully styled lodge is an oasis of beauty of calm, luxury and comfort, with rolling lawns, exquisite gardens, and refreshing swimming pools. A South African Natural Heritage site, Bushmans Kloof is a sanctuary for many indigenous plants, animals and birds, including the endangered Cape Mountain zebra.
