Extensive choice of dining venues and wine cellar
All rooms are lavishly furnished with plush textiles and dark wood features, while double doors open out onto shaded verandas with spectacular views. Classic style combines with contemporary comforts to create an elegant and relaxing environment in which to retreat at the end of the day. The River Side suite boasts a prime position on the peaceful banks of the meandering Boontjies, with an expansive terrace and private infinity pool overlooking the rugged landscape beyond. The main dining room and terrace are home, not only to exquisite South African cuisine but also the property’s outstanding private art collection. For a more secluded dining experience, retreat to the rustic Kadoro cottage in the heart of the reserve. Free from electricity, prepare for a candlelit feast for your private party under the star-studded sky, with the majestic Cederberg Mountains looming in the distance.
The landscape’s rich ecosystem provides endless opportunity for exploration and adventure, while the spa and wellness centre offers the perfect place to unwind and relax. Cycle through rocky terrain, home to herds of zebra and families of baboons, before indulging in a Bushmans Kloof signature massage to end your action-packed day.
