Bushmans Kloof - Main Lodge Location Map

Just 270 km scenic drive from Cape Town, Bushmans Kloof is a privately owned wilderness reserve and is world renowned for its 130 rock art sites. In recognition of its rich cultural, historical and environmental significance, Bushmans Kloof has been declared a South African Natural Heritage site.

One of the highlights of a day at Bushmans Kloof is the sunset game drive in open game viewing vehicles, with drinks and snacks served at one of the many vantage points in the reserve. Knowledgeable rangers lead the game drives where guests can view at close range a variety of game, both large and small, and enjoy the ever-changing vistas and vegetation.

Early morning rock art tours provide the visitor with an insight into an ancient culture that has been lost forever.

Botanical walks, mountain hikes and bird watching are also available. Mountain biking down one of the many rocky slopes offers a challenge to the very adventurous.

Fly-fishing enthusiasts may opt for a day excursion to the Biedouw river to challenge the famous Clanwilliam yellowfish on a catch-and-release basis.

There are 16 en-suite rooms and suites in total, each individually decorated in light colours with natural fabrics and traditional furnishings.  All open onto a private patio area.

The main guest facilities include 2 lounges with fireplaces (one with satellite TV), as well as a library, bar and wine cellar.  The Heritage Centre contains a Bushman artefact exhibition and hosts specialist talks.

There are also 4 swimming pools and The Spa, which offers an extensive selection of treatments.

Please note that the terrain is rocky and uneven and has steps in and around the lodge. The lodge is therefore more suitable to active, fully-mobile guests.
