Cape Town is an starting point for a South Africa family holiday: from the city’s many local attractions it’s a comfortable drive up the West Coast to one of the most child-friendly reserves in Africa - Bushmans Kloof Wilderness Reserve, a South African Natural Heritage Site set in the beautiful foothills of the Cederberg. Home to San rock art sites and plenty of flora and mountain wildlife (including the very rare and elusive Cape leopard), Bushmans Kloof offers a range of activities that make the most of the great outdoors.
The lodge is set in the picturesque foothills of the Cape’s Cederberg mountains – it’s a peaceful, sun-drenched and malaria-free corner of the Western Cape.
Make the most of the weather for morning hikes to view the incredible rock art of the San, one of the world’s First People. Taking a guided walk in a wilderness reserve is a great way to encounter the natural world close up.
Game drives provide a great opportunity to see more of the area’s rugged beauty, as well as encounter larger game, like herd of zebra and elephant.
There’s nothing quite as refreshing in the heat of the afternoon as taking a short canoe safari or simply relaxing poolside with incredible views.
How you’ll spend your time in this natural wonderland for families is up to you but, whatever you see and do, you’ll be making the kind of memories that last for a lifetime.
