We arrived after the long drive, three hours from Cape town, to a wonderful friendly welcome. Our room was older and the cheapest offering, it was fine. The great thing was the view outside of the dam and scenery. The bird watching was amazing. I...More

Wonderful position with lovely views out to sea. The land is full of beautiful wild flowers and a sea trip is very worthwhile. Saw wales and dolphins, swimming seals and penguins. Food at the retreat was top quality and we were very well looked after.

Dear GrahamL-S, Many thanks for your comments and glad you had some quality time on your own. The beauty of Bushmans Kloof certainly is in it's solitude and space. We are certainly having a look at the High Tea and meals in general and hope...More
