Here at Bushmans Kloof, we are well aware of our extraordinary environment, and are indebted to the land that sustains a plethora of plants and wildlife. We are also the proud partner of a number of local projects, including local farming communities, the Amy Biel Foundation and Elizabethfontein Primary School.
We are home to a rich array of indigenous wildlife within the Cederberg wilderness, including the rare and precious Cape Leopard. Along with The TreadRight Foundation, Cheetah Outreach and The Cape Leopard Trust, we have purchased seven Anatolian Shepherd dogs to act as livestock guardian dogs (LGDs) and safeguard these Cape Leopards. In addition, we are also the proud owner of one of the world’s largest privately owned herds of Cape Mountain Zebras, and we are wholeheartedly committed to the protection of this beautiful animal.
Bushmans Kloof is a member of National Geographic Unique Lodges of the World, recognising our dedication to preserving our planet’s natural and cultural heritage. We serve as a steward for more than 130 cave sites painted by the indigenous San people, actively working to ensure that these expressive murals will tell the story of the land’s original inhabitants for generations to come. These preservation efforts have helped the Rock Art earn distinction as a Grade 1 South African National Heritage Site.
Together with The TreadRight Foundation and the TTC family of brands, we hope to leave a positive impact on local people, wildlife and the planet to #maketravelmatter.
