Bushmans Kloof Offers Family Packages

10th Aug 2004

Voted the 5th Top Hotel in the World (US Travel + Leisure August 2004), Bushmans Kloof offers a unique wilderness experience that is now on available to families with children of all ages, during select holiday periods throughout the year.
During the rest of the year, Bushmans Kloof welcomes children aged 10 and older, who may then participate with their parents in the regular lodge activities and programme.


Bushmans Kloof Wilderness Reserve & Retreat offers a range of exhilarating outdoor activities, luxury accommodation, gourmet cuisine and soothing specialised spa treatments, in a safe, malaria-free environment, only 270km outside of Cape Town.


The Family Fun packages are educational and enriching, and are specially designed for families wanting to spend time together in nature and to learn more about the ancient Bushman culture.



Bushmans Kloof is a sanctuary to many indigenous plants, animals and birds, including the endangered Cape mountain zebra. Daily activities include rock art walks to some of the more than 130 rock art sites that are found in the reserve as well as evening game drives with sunset drinks and snacks served in the reserve.


Mom and dad will have ample free time to enjoy the 5-star facilities on hand, ranging from invigorating treatments at the Spa at Bushmans Kloof, to relax in the library or Research Centre or may want to join the children mountain biking, hiking through the reserve, or swimming in the crystal clear rock pools.


Children will learn more about animals, plants and birds, the Bushmen - their rock art, hunting techniques and tracking of animals, canoeing, fly-fishing, collecting treasures in the veld, trying their hand at creating their own ‘rock art’, as well as having the option of camping out with experienced rangers.


Early children’s supper will be served every day and afterwards rangers and child minders will entertain the kids with night-walks, game drives or video’s while parents take time out to enjoy leisurely gourmet dinners on their own. Adult dinner choices range from homemade comfort foods to gourmet gastronomic meals, to be enjoyed in various stunning settings - on your private terrace, at Spanners boma or Embers outdoor dining facility, or in the Homestead dining room.


Although the Family Fun package activities are focused towards children between the ages of 6 and 12 years, older siblings are welcome too and babysitting services are available for younger children at a nominal fee.
