Bushmans Kloof Wilderness Reserve, Western Cape

This little piece of heaven nestled at the foothills of the lush Cederberg Mountains is the ideal wilderness getaway to escape, relax and meet some fascinating locals. Accommodating 32 guests, in a range of rooms and suites in the stunning nature reserve, it’s the perfect place to get back to nature amongst wide open plains, mystical rock formations, and other inhabitants of the wild outdoors. The combination of warm friendly service, delicious organic cuisine, stylish accommodation, and total privacy makes Bushmans Kloof Wilderness Reserve one of our favourite hideaways.


Bushman’s Kloof is set in the heart of rugged South Africa, in some of the country’s most beautiful and least explored terrain. A 2.5-hour drive from the achingly hip city of Cape Town, it’s the perfect place to get away from the bustle of the city in a truly rural African setting.

Your room

Bushmans Kloof has seven luxury rooms, all with a private patio overlooking the landscaped indigenous gardens where you can unwind with a glass of chilled South African wine whilst admiring the spectacular surroundings and weird and wonderful rock formations. Hand-made bed linen, custom made fabrics and homely yet luxurious décor create a feeling of peace. All rooms have underfloor heating and state of the art technologies, as well as luxury pampering products to soothe and revive.

Why we like it

Need some chill-out time after partying in Cape Town or early mornings on Safari? Bushmans Kloof is the place for you. We love the Spa, which has been inspired by the healing essences of Africa, has introduced its own anti-ageing body and skincare treatments, which are said to harness the power of African plant extracts and essential oils. Whatever they do, they feel and smell amazing. Not to be missed. The San rock art dotted around the surrounding countryside makes you feel like you’re in the world’s largest ancient art gallery too.
