About Bushmans Kloof

Bushmans Kloof is an ecological oasis situated within the foothills of the Cederberg Mountains, offering a vast and magical land of astonishing flora and fauna, for a very distinctive wilderness experience. The lodge lies among open plains and ancient sandstone formations, where you can discover over 130 sites of bush art paintings, some of which date back as far as 10,000 years.

Bushmans Kloof is made up of 16 luxurious guest rooms and suites, including Koro Lodge, a private and fully-catered villa near to the main lodge. The ultimate wilderness experience, Bushmans Kloof is a multi award-winning lodge, and a member of Red Carnation Collection. The wide open plains, and crystal clear waterfalls, are the perfect location to relax and escape, while surrounded by an abundance of nature and wildlife.

Just 270km from Cape Town, the lodge is nestled within the Cederberg Mountains, in a 7500 hectare malaria and predator free area. Home to over 130 documented Bushman rock art sites and the internationally renowned Rooibos tea, Bushmans Kloof is a South African Natural Heritage Site, and protects one of the largest private herds of Cape Mountain Zebra in the world.
