The Cederberg area is an exquisite natural sanctuary and it’s not a huge mission to get there. Bushmans Kloof is definitely where you’d want to be headed. It’s a lovely 270km drive from Cape Town – and especially pretty during spring when the roadside is confettied with flowers.
If you’re after a magical nature/nurture combo, then Bushmans Kloof is just the place for you. It’s a top-class luxury retreat in the Cederberg, a multiple award-winner and member of Relais & Chateaux. It’s set in a beautiful reserve – a Natural Heritage Site – where you’ll meet many kinds of indigenous fauna and flora, and of course it’s springtime now so there will also be spectacular carpets of flowers.
Visits to ancient rock art sites are among the many highlights of a stay at Bushmans Kloof. And you’re guarranteed to enjoy the journey through the beautiful rocky landscape as much as the art sites themselves. The spa treatments at Bushmans Kloof are a huge spoil, and if you choose they can happen outdoors in unadulterated nature.
There are several great packages to choose from (and custom-tweak) at Bushmans Kloof, including family adventures (you could book the stunning Koro Lodge as your private family hideaway), mid-week nature fixes, and sublime wellness escapes.
