Set against a backdrop of a spectacular and exquisite indigenous gardens, Bushmans Kloof offers a unique wilderness experience, a mere 270 km from Cape Town.

Located on the edge of the Cederberg Wilderness area, Bushmans Koof is an ecological oasis situated between the rugged foothills of the Cederberg Mountains and the plains of the Great Karoo.

The area, which has a unique surface and subterranean river system, is characterized by immense open plains, ravines, waterfalls and prehistoric rock formations which are home to a large variety of botanical communities. The abundance of game and the diversity of plant life hold the clues to Bushmans Kloof’s fascinating history.

Today, Bushmans Kloof is a conservation success story, a privately owned reserve dedicated to the preservation of rock art and the re-creation of a Western Cape sanctuary for indigenous flora and fauna, and a premier spring flower destination. It is a South Africa Natural Heritage site and is known as “the world’s largest open-air art gallery” with 125 rock art sites dating back some 10,000 years.

The reserve is home to more than 140 bird species, 755 plant species and more than 34 species of mammals which have been identified in the reserve – including a large herd of the rare and endangered Cape mountain zebra, and occasional sightings of the elusive Cape mountain leopard.
