Nestled in the foothills of the Cederberg Mountains north of Cape Town lies an ecological oasis within a roughly hewn and magical land which offers a distinctive wilderness experience among open plains and ancient sandstone formations. Bushmans Kloof is a multi-award-winning lodge and member of Red Carnation Hotel Collection.  

imgBushmans Kloof is the sole custodian of over 130 unique rock art sites, some as old as 10,000 years. The sites on the reserve may be viewed by guests and since it's founding, Bushmans Kloof has been dedicated to protecting this extraordinary treasure. The experience directly advances UN Global Goal 5: Sustainable Cities and Communities by preserving ancient traditional art, an important piece of Bushmans Kloof's cultural heritage.
