A Family Affair at Bushmans Kloof Wilderness Reserve and Retreat, South Africa

May 22, 2008 By:Mary Winston Nicklin

Bushmans KloofWe're big fans of Bushmans Kloof Wilderness Reserve and Retreat, an extraordinary property located within the Cederberg Wilderness Area in a World Heritage Site about 270 kilometers from Cape Town. The setting is stunning (where else can you dine in a natural sandstone amphitheater of giant boulders overlooking ancient cliffs and deep ravines?) and the amenities are luxurious. A world-class eco-luxury retreat that's won countless awards, the resort offers a unique wilderness experience. Bushmans Kloof has just put together a fabulous Family Affair package that's bound to please every member of your family. Activities are tailor-made for kids between the ages of 6 and 12 years. (Older siblings are welcome, too, and there are babysitting services available, as well.) Children learn all about animals, plants, birds and the Bushmen -- their rock art, hunting techniques and animal tracking. Other child-friendly activities include canoeing, swimming in rock pools, fishing, creating 'rock art', as well as camping out with experienced guides. Early children's supper is served daily, after which guides entertain the kids with night walks, game drives or movies, while parents enjoy leisurely gourmet dinners served in glorious locations around the resort. Mom and Dad will have ample free time to enjoy the five-star facilities, swimming pools, and soothing spa treatments, or they may want to take off and explore the surrounding area-- a sanctuary for many indigenous plants, animals and birds, including the endangered Cape Mountain zebra.
