National Geographic: Unique Lodges of the World

Welcome to Bushmans Kloof, part of The Red Carnation Hotel Collection and a proud member of National Geographic’s Unique Lodges of the World.

  • Examine some of the lodge's more than 130 archaeological rock art sites, adorned with massive 10,000-year-old rock art murals depicting the shamanistic rituals of the ancient indigenous San people.
  • Roam on your own in a predator-free wildlife preserve, and get up-close views of Bushman Reserve antelope species, black wildebeests, and rare Cape mountain zebras.
  • Paddle a canoe along pristine waterways that cut through the sandstone, breaking for a dunk in a secret swimming hole.
  • Witness one of the world’s most breathtaking springtime events, the Cape wildflower bloom (July to October), when the veld is draped in glorious pastels and jewel tones.
  • Dine on fresh Cape cuisine in a natural sandstone amphitheater, lit by a roaring fire and hundreds of twinkling lanterns and candles.

National Geographic - Guest Exclusive:

At Bushmans Kloof, National Geographic guests will enjoy a private presentation on the history behind the property’s Bushman paintings, given by the lodge’s rock art curator. Afterwards, you’ll head to the onsite Heritage Centre for a guided visit through galleries displaying Bushman artifacts, including ancient jewellery, hunting gear, and shamanistic paraphernalia. Cap off this memorable experience with a private drive through the lodge reserve to view some of its spectacular paintings.
