My boyfriend and I stayed two nights at Bushmans Kloof. Arriving at the resort - with its white lodges amidst massive blue gum trees - was like coming to paradise. We were welcomed by Portia, who was so lovely and made us feel at home and relaxed. The décor and level of detail at the resort is incredible. The highlights...

Bushman's Kloof is probably the most relaxing place in South Africa. It is situated in the Cederberg mountains near Clanwilliam and is a very private resort set in beautiful surroundings.

A perfect combination of luxury enriched with unspoilt nature. A true wilderness luxury sanctuary. You are spoilt from the moment you drive into the Lodge where the porter gets your bags and drops them off to your room and another staff member quietly veers your car to the parking bay. The guides are very well informed of their surroundings and...
