Discover Cape Town's closest 5 star luxury lodge (270km north of Cape Town) set in the heart of the wilderness of the Western Cape, between the majestic Cederberg mountains and the vast open plains of the Great Karoo. This luxury ecological oasis was once the hunting ground of the Bushman, and the very cradle of humankind. This five-star lodge is a proud member of Relais & Chateaux, with 16 luxurious rooms and suites.
Offering a unique malaria-free, wilderness experience and a sanctuary for many indigenous plants, birds and animals, the reserve’s carefully preserved San rock art sites also make it the world’s ‘largest open air art gallery’. Guided walks provide insight into the lives of the San, South Africa’s earliest inhabitants who roamed this region during the Later Stone Age and today are recognised as one of the oldest civilisations of mankind. At Bushmans Kloof over 130 rock art sites are located amidst overhanging cliffs and rocky shelters. The new Heritage Centre provides further insight into the history and lives of the San people through artefacts and photographic images, as well as the unique medicinal herb garden.
