Rock Art Workshop

Enjoy a fascinating Rock Art Workshop with Stephen Townley Basset. Stephen is the only Experimental Archaeologist & Documentary Artist of San Rock Art, which makes this even more special. Guests are able to handle paintbrushes made from feathers and porcupine quills at the Rock Art site, which make the experience come to life. Stephen has had a long-lasting relationship with Bushmans Kloof, first visiting (then Boontjies Kloof) as a child with his uncle in the late 70s to explore its fascinating rock art. He has also created many accurate documentary art pieces of our rock art sites, which are on display at the lodge.

VUTH’UMLILO “BLAZING FIRE” AT KADORO

Kadoro is a charming stone building set in the shade of an ancient blue gum in the midst of the reserve. Translated from the ǀXam dialect of the San language, which means ‘Tinderbox of Stories’, Kadoro provides a
unique venue for a romantic dinner for two or a private dining venue for up to 10 guests.

With no electricity, Kadoro offers dining by candlelight. Guests are greeted by hundreds of candles and lanterns, casting a warm ambience throughout the cottage and creating an enchanted setting for what is to
come, a six-course fire-inspired meal by out incredible Chef Oliver Coetzee, incorporating indigenous fauna and flora of the region. After dinner, guests enjoy a night drive back to the lodge under a blanket of stars.

This experience is available on 23rd & 24th April, 19th & 20th July, 13th & 14th September, 11th & 12th October 2024.
