Bushman’s Kloof Wilderness Reserve

Number One Hotel in the World’ according to 2009 US Travel + Leisure World’s Best Awards reader’s survey.

What an accolade!  This 5-star wilderness resort in the foothills of the Cederberg Mountains is one of my favourite places with a landscape like no other only 270km from Cape Town.

I have fond memories of when my friend fell into the ice cold mountain dam after trying to extricate himself from a canoe that he could not control. And mountain bushmans-kloof (from www.bushmanskloof.co.za)biking with zebra and antelopes grazing on the plain and sitting by a remote spot where the strangely shaped yellow and ochre rocks created a landscape of natural sculptures. And then there was a press visit when I was forced to eat a ten-course taster menu – each nibble was more delicious than the last and I ended up with a stomach twice the size of my body but still wanted more.

This day ended with a massage from hands that knew how to unlock the tension. 


Oh for that day to be right now!

And whaddyaknow, Bushman’s Kloof also took pole position as the Number 1 Lodge/Resort in Africa and the Middle East and their sister property, The Twelve Apostles Hotel and Spa, in CapeTown, was voted the Best City Hotel in Africa & Middle East, as well as Best Hotel Spa in Africa & the Middle East.

Enough now!
