Bushmans Kloof remains our top of the list experiences in South Africa. This place excudes a certain stillness and tranquility. Excellent accommodation and meals. Thank you to Christiaan for the bird watching and many photo ops!

From the minute you arrive to the minute you leave this place never fails to impress.

Five stars in the middle of nowhere. Would we go back, oh...

All my father wanted for his 80th was to be with his closest family on a patio "somewhere". So I set off to find the perfect Patio for him. The Koro Lodge gave us just that. Special care and attention with all the privacy we needed. Everyone had the most incredible time, from his 16 and 21 year old grandsons...

I went to Bushman's Kloof to find rare bird that paid them a visit for a week. What an absolute treat. This is a retreat in the true sense of the word. There is no mobile phone access, however if you are a tech junkie and need your fix they have free WiFi. All meals and activities are included in...

We all agreed that it was the favourite place we'd ever visited. Our wonderful guide, Christian, took us around the vast reserve and found secret spots where we could swim in crystal pools and see ancient rock art. The guides are truly passionate and we went to a very interesting talk about snakes, the guide having caught a boomslang in...

This place is highly overrated! The so called ,luxery double' was a tiny room full of furniture, no space to sit or to hide your luggage properly and it is very dark. We stayed in a lot of nice places around Africa. There are so many places with spacious, light rooms, nice design in african style,....much better than this one!...

We booked the Honeymoon Package, and this made our stay over the top luxurious and memorable. Bushmans Kloof is beautiful and serene and you will no doubt enjoy it from the moment you arrive until the moment you depart no matter what, however this package included our very favorite memories from our trip: a romantic private dinner in the walled...
