We spent four nights (on their excellent 4 nights for the price of 3 deal) in the first part of March, having built our trip to South Africa around this stay. We did not know the Cederberg at all and it's an amazing area. The stay at Bushman's Kloof was excellent in all respects: the welcome and introduction, the room,...

If you are looking for luxury nestled in nature, surrounded by the sound of birds and the beautiful views of the Cederberg Rock formations, this is it! Accompanied by exquisite food and friendly service from all the staff. Accommodation includes all your meals (beverages are for your own account). Look out for their great out-of-season specials. Luxury rooms are very...

Set amidst the ancient Cederberg mountains, Bushmans Kloof has an abundance of beauty with expansive landscapes, orange earth and beautiful flora and fauna. The lodge itself has a warm and romantic atmosphere, the gardens and pools are like an oasis and the accommodation is of an exceptional standard. From the wedding planning get-go, it was made very clear to us...

There is nothing we could suggest to improve this place. There were 5 of us and we all felt the same. Really special thanks to Nicholas, our guide, who was so informative and even took us on a late night walk. What a terrific place.

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!

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...
