Cederberg House opens at Bushmans Kloof Wilderness Reserve in South Africa

Bushmans Kloof Wilderness Reserve & Wellness Retreat has enhanced its stunning accommodations with the opening of Cederberg House, a private haven that can host up to four guests in seclusion and luxurious comfort.

Overlooking the tranquil banks of the Boontjies River, Cederberg House is inspired by the timeless design of Cape Dutch architecture and offers an exclusive window to the wilderness beyond.

The house’s natural aesthetic has been carefully designed to blend beautifully with the surrounding landscape, from the raw materials of stone and slate that flow through each room to the thoughtfully curated collection of original South African artwork.

Ideal for families and groups of friends, the house features a private guide to explore the magical wilderness of Bushmans Kloof, bringing the reserve’s open plains, sandstone formations, breath-taking flora and fauna, and 10,000-year-old rock art sites to life.

This secluded sanctuary is the perfect retreat and includes state-the-art technology, two large master suites each featuring their own outdoor shower, fully stocked bar, dining room and living space.


World-class service from a caring team ensure a restful environment with plenty of thoughtful touches such as BAfrica Signature amenities, indigenous flowers, scented candles and delicious treats from executive chef Charles Hayward and his team.

Toni Tollman, head of global design for Red Carnation Hotels, said: “I am so proud to unveil Cederberg House as the latest, truly special addition to Bushmans Kloof.

“We set out to create something that seamlessly connects our guests to the surrounding landscape in total privacy and seclusion.

“Drawing at all times on a natural and timeless aesthetic, our approach was to complement the wilderness experience whilst delivering the ultimate in comfort, hospitality and service.

“I really believe that this is one of the finest private accommodations in South Africa, in the heart of this unique and beautiful reserve.”
