Safari adventures with a luxurious home base make this a destination for travelers who appreciate creature comforts.
When most people think about a safari, they envision a wilderness adventure. But it's possible to have a safari experience without roughing it, as Bushmans Kloof demonstrates. Consider this place "safari lite" — we mean that as a compliment. Located in the foothills of the Cederberg Mountains, just 165 miles from Cape Town, this unique retreat welcomes guests to a private, 7,500-hectare reserve where they can take early morning excursions to ancient rock art sites, enjoy sunset drives in search of rare Cape Mountain Zebra and savor spa treatments that use ingredients such as the indigenous rooibos plant, which is known for its antioxidant qualities. The property's comprehensive wellness center features traditional facilities, as well as natural rock pools, waterfalls and a riverside gazebo, so that guests can take full advantage of the natural setting. Rounding out the luxury are historic farmhouse and private villa accommodations, as well as a range of dining options, including meals around a campfire.
