Bushmans Kloof Lodge
A breath of fresh mountain air
Bushmans Kloof Lodge
Steeped in ancient San Bushman history, and surrounded by the rolling mountains of the Cederberg, this upmarket colonial-style lodge is set in a private reserve within the pristine rocky mountains. Explore the surrounds—a South African heritage site known for its abundant Bushman rock art, magnificent flowering plant species and a variety wildlife, including the rare and elusive Cape Mountain Leopard. Spend some quality time indulging at the lodge with a pampering spa treatment or a gastronomical delight, and wind down in your comfortable rooms looking over the beautiful surrounds.
At the lodge
The central communal spaces of Bushmans Kloof are spread throughout an original but restored homestead. The two lounging areas enjoy slightly different styles, with one incorporating strong African influences and the other taking a more modern feel. The various dining spaces are stylish and well-appointed with fireplaces and garden views, depending on location. There is also a library, well stocked wine cellar and a terrace overlooking the surrounds. In the vicinity, you will find the reception, a curio shop, four swimming pools, a riverside Boma (traditional eating enclosure), gym and last but not least the sumptuous spa and wellness centre.
There are 16 rooms and suites available, providing a wide range of accommodation from which to choose. All have been built with luxury in mind, following a colonial style with white linens and raw wood. The range includes: Luxury Rooms, Deluxe Rooms, Paterson Suite, Riverside Supreme Suite for couples desiring romance and intimacy. The Niven Family Deluxe Room and the Koro Lodge a private villa, set about three kilometers away from the communal areas provides a homely atmosphere for small families.
Activities at Bushmans Kloof take a more leisurely pace, including nature drives with wildlife species like springbok, eland and cape mountain zebra. Take a guided rock art excursion, showcasing the well-preserved bushman art sites of the region. The botanical walks provide an insight into the unique Cape Floral Kingdom. Or you could spend a day floating down the Brandewyn River in a canoe, fishing, hiking or embarking on a walking trail.
