Nature’s bounty

While the Cederberg landscape is dry and arid, it is home to a remarkable array of flora and fauna. More than 200 species of animals have been recorded on the 7500-hectare Bushmans Kloof reserve, alongside 755 species of indigenous fynbos plants, many of which are endemic to the region. Our experienced field guides lead daily nature excursions, on foot or in covered safari vehicles, to introduce guests to the natural wonders of the reserve.

In the springtime (August-September) the region is world-famous for its dazzling display of wildflowers, transforming the landscape into a riot of colour.

Get active outdoors

Alongside guided nature drives, guests can fill their days at Bushmans Kloof with exploring the well-marked hiking and mountain biking trails, canoeing on the farm dam, fly-fishing for endemic Clanwilliam Yellowfish, or discovering the finer points of archery and croquet.

While Cape Mountain Leopards have been recorded on the reserve, these shy predators are rarely seen, allowing guests to independently explore the pristine mountain landscape in complete safety, and at their leisure.
