Bushmans Kloof Expands Family Fun with a Deluxe Room

Located just 270km from Cape Town, at the foothills of the Cederberg Mountains amidst staggering rock formations and endless open plains, Bushmans Kloof Wilderness Reserve & Wellness Retreat offers a fun and enriching experience for the whole family.

With the introduction of the Niven Family Deluxe Room, the lodge has expanded its family offer even further to accommodate parents with children aged eight and older in the main lodge. Throughout the year, families with children of all ages are also welcome in the private villa, Koro Lodge, whilst special Family Fun packages at the main lodge during school holidays, offer a special children’s programme for little ones, sharing rooms with their parents.

The beautifully appointed Niven Family Room is centrally located and features two spacious bedrooms, each with its own en-suite bathroom. The master bedroom is king-size, while the second bedroom can be converted into a twin or a double, making it a convenient choice for families travelling together. In addition Niven also has a comfortable lounge area and a tranquil private terrace, perfect for a drink underneath a starlit sky.
