Bushmans Kloof Wilderness Reserve & Wellness Retreat

Bushmans Kloof
It was announced in Las Vegas at the prestigious Virtuoso TravelWeek Awards Gala on 16 August 2012, that Bushmans Kloof Wilderness Reserve & Wellness Retreat has won the Virtuoso Sustainable Tourism Leadership Awards (2012), for its outstanding leadership and commitment to sustainable tourism principles. Family owned and part of the Red Carnation Hotel Collection in South Africa, Bushmans Kloof was up against almost a thousand other top resorts and hotels from around the world.

Celebrating its 20th anniversary this year, Virtuoso is an international luxury travel network of 975 hotels, resorts, villas and private island retreats in 95 countries, ranking among the finest hospitality establishments in the world. 

The Virtuoso Sustainable Tourism Leadership Award was created in 2011 to recognize a Virtuoso member who has made an outstanding contribution to the long-term sustainability of the tourism industry. The winner is determined by a judging panel of Virtuoso’s member travel advisors, all considered to be global leaders in creating luxury experiences for their clients.

A proud member of Relais & Châteaux, Bushmans Kloof came out tops for its extraordinary dedication to restoring and preserving the natural beauty of the 7500 hectare reserve, and the supporting initiatives it has introduced in the local community. Located at the foothills of the Cederberg Mountains some 270m north of Cape Town (South Africa), this luxurious ecological oasis bases its entire business ethos on preserving the natural environment, while providing guests with the ultimate African wilderness experience. 
No stranger to top global awards, Bushmans Kloof has consistently received world-wide recognition, not only for its distinctive wilderness experience among open plains and ancient sandstone formations, and signature world-class hospitality plus warm, caring service, but notably for its exceptional conservation and community projects.  Predator and malaria-free, it is a safe haven for abundant wildlife, and, as a South African Natural Heritage Site, is custodian of over 130 ancient Bushman rock art sites in the reserve, known as ‘one of the world's largest open air rock art galleries’.
