We Care

The threat posed by climate change and the need to preserve natural resources are some of the most important issues facing us today. At Bushmans Kloof, we are keenly aware of our responsibility to confront these problems head-on, and have instituted a Green Team to investigate and implement the ways we can contribute to this global process.

We are committed to our community and dedicated to social responsibility. Supporting local charities, conservation, preservation, nature, heritage and green initiatives including the personal development of each member of the Red Carnation team, is at the heart of everything we do.

The Cape Leopard Trust


Bushmans Kloof Wilderness Reserve & Wellness Retreat has been a major sponsor of The Cape Leopard Trust since the project launched in 2004, working to find solutions to human-wildlife conflict through a long term research and monitoring project with an interactive and dynamic environmental education programme.

The Cape Leopard Trust is an organisation dedicated to the preservation of the Cape’s predator diversity. Though Bushmans Kloof is predator-free, we are deeply committed the protection and preservation of all indigenous wildlife in South Africa. The partnership between Bushmans Kloof and the Cape Leopard Trust provides invaluable information pertaining to Leopard ecology in the area.
