Bushmans Kloof offers you a totally immersive experience in a spectacular predator- and malaria-free wilderness area in the Cape Floral Kingdom.
This Relais & Chateaux property has won multiple awards over the years, including best small hotel in the world, but it is not just its undeniable luxury that has earned it these plaudits. What sets it apart is the sensitive way in which it blends world-class comfort and hospitality with the pristine wilderness of its South African Natural Heritage Site surrounds. Bushmans Kloof’s sincere dedication to creating a sanctuary for endangered flora and fauna in the 7 500-hectare reserve is tangible, and their careful custodianship of over 130 Bushman rock-art sites in the reserve gives guests a remarkable opportunity to discover for themselves the beauty of these ancient Stone Age San rock paintings.
The beautifully appointed, spacious guest rooms and suites are either spread out through the landscaped botanical gardens or in part of the lovingly restored original farmhouse (circa 1843). Koro Lodge, a private, fully catered villa close to the main lodge, is a delightfully indulgent and comfortable option for up to 10 guests seeking exclusive luxury. All rooms offer sumptuous bed linen, air conditioning and ceiling fans, underfloor heating, and complimentary wireless internet access is available throughout the main lodge, although cellphone reception in this remote area is sketchy at best.
The renowned spa is itself a tranquil and healing sanctuary with exceptionally skilled therapists and an extensive range of wellness and beauty treatments. Choose between the serene dual and single treatment rooms or the lovely outdoor spa gazebo overlooking the Boontjes River. The crystal steam room is a great stress reliever, or you can relax beside the heated outdoor pool or another of the lodge’s four crystalline swimming pools.
Bushmans Kloof offers extraordinarily good Cape cuisine, with much of the organic produce sourced from the kitchen garden. One of the many thoughtful touches that will delight you during your stay is the range of dining options, from fine dining in the Homestead restaurant, romantic picnics or high tea to a delicious traditional South African barbecue (braai) under the African night sky.
