While we all know how important it is to connect with nature to counteract our urban lifestyles, sometimes there is no better way than to actually escape to nature itself. Today our armchair travel is taking us to Bushmans Kloof Wilderness Reserve at the foot of the Cederberg Mountain, about 3 hours from Cape Town.
Bushmans Kloof is committed to conservation and social responsibiity. The area is rich in biodiversity (it is three time richer than that found in the Amazon forest) with an immense variety of plant and animals species, where the wildlife roam free.
With a focus on nature, the 16 guest rooms, suites and villas are individually designed with natural materials, opening to the outdoors and offer views across the indigenous gardens.
The hotel restaurants carry through this theme, with the organic garden providing the kitchens with fresh produce. Dining options include cozy fireside dining in the Homestead or Makana, picnics in the fynbos and braais at Embers under the open skies.
If all of that isn’t enough, be sure to make time for spa relaxation!
