ABOUT BUSHMANS KLOOF WILDERNESS RESERVE & WELLNESS RETREAT
 
Located 270km from Cape Town and nestled at the foothills of the majestic Cederberg Mountain range, Bushmans Kloof Wilderness Reserve and Wellness Retreat is truly an ecological oasis. Endless plains and stunning sandstone formations greet guests as they embark on an unforgettable wilderness experience. The 7500 hectare reserve is a South African Natural Heritage Site that not only provides a sanctuary for a range of endangered species, but also boasts over 130 Bushmen rock art sites. Between the months of July and October, the muted veld is transformed through an explosion of colour, courtesy of the abundant spring flowers that bloom at that time of the year. Over 755 species of indigenous fynbos can also be found in the area, adding to the richness of the vast landscape.
 
The lodge offers guests 16 luxurious rooms and suites, complete with modern amenities and beautiful finishes. Koro Lodge is a self-catering villa located near to the main lodge that can sleep large groups of up to ten people – it’s the perfect combination of luxury and wilderness wonder. The elegance of the suites complements the ruggedness of the surroundings perfectly, whilst the on-site spa treatments provide rejuvenation for the mind, body and soul.
