Feel the restorative pulse of Bushmanskloof

At the foothills of the Cederberg Mountains and 2h30 away from the bustling streets of Cape Town, the vast terrain of Bushmanskloof welcomes visitors. A 7,500-hectare nature reserve wrapped in timeless tranquillity; the rocky outcrops, endless fynbos shrubland and seemingly deserted valleys and fields promise a retreat from which visitors will return with an enriched mind, body and soul.

Interact with nature as you never have before: explore the areas wide open spaces on foot or by bike, discover the imposing rock faces decorated with ancient San rock art or sink into the cool pools at the base of the waterfalls in the reserve. Canoe on the calm waters of the dam or try your hand at hooking the Clanwilliam yellowfish. The riverside Spa Gazebo offers soothing treatments with Bushmanskloofa panoramic backdrop of the surrounding landscape.

Guided nature drives reveal some of the 36 game species to be found including the endangered Cape mountain zebra, bontebok, gemsbok, eland and wildebeest. With nightfall, the reserve’s nocturnal residents emerge, among them the elusive African wildcat, aardwolf, bat-eared fox and Cape fox. Meditate in Bushmanskloof’s serene surroundings or sample award-winning wines and traditional dishes while the sun sets over the landscape, painting the sky shades of orange, purple, red and gold.
