Conservation and our responsibilities

Committed to conservation and social responsibility

Here at Bushmans Kloof, we are well aware of our extraordinary environment, and feel ourselves beholden to the land that sustains a plethora of plants and creatures, including ourselves.

That’s why Bushmans Kloof Wilderness Reserve and Wellness Retreat is the proud winner of a host of ecological awards, including the silver for Best Contribution to Cultural Heritage Conservation by African Responsible Condé Nast World Savers Award for Wildlife and Conservation Programmes, and the coveted Relais and Chateaux Environment Trophy. We are proud to be within the Cederberg wilderness area within the Cape Floral Kingdom.



Bushmans Kloof is devoted to preserving the extraordinary profusion of fynbos species on the reserve, and flower season here is a sight unlike any other.

Every level of our operation is based on sound conservation practices. Our outstanding staff are passionate about the subject and closely monitor water quality, soil condition, vegetation and wildlife. We’ve also implemented an environmentally friendly solid waste disposal unit and an advanced Biolytix wastewater processing system.

All management actions are governed by a comprehensive Environmental Management Plan, ratified by the Bushmans Kloof Conservation Trust. Each trustee is an expert in their field, including wildlife management, botany and archaeology.
