Bushmans Kloof Wilderness Reserve and Wellness Retreat

Located 270 kilometres from Cape Town, Bushmans Kloof Wilderness Reserve & Wellness Retreat is a five-star ecological oasis in a wind-sculpted landscape of ancient rock formations. A predator and malaria-free reserve, it is a sanctuary to many endangered species of fauna and flora and is renowned as the ‘world's largest open air art gallery’ with over 130 ancient Bushman rock art sites.

Great focus, deeply rooted in nature, is placed on wellbeing and wellness, to offer solace for body, mind and spirit. The intimate spa and riverside spa gazebo are inspired by the unique holistic healing qualities so special to this area, including treatments rich in pampering ancient remedies, complemented with indigenous rooibos, flowers and plants.

Dine under the African stars in a range of breathtaking locations and savour delicious organic cuisine created from local recipes with ingredients sourced from the freshest produce.

Experience evening nature drives, swimming in rock pools and near waterfalls, hiking, canoeing, guided rock art walks and many other exhilarating outdoor activities in one of South Africa's finest natural heritage sites.

Koro Lodge, a private, fully catered villa, 5 minutes from the main lodge, offers the ideal intimate wilderness experience for families with children of all ages and groups of friends.
