October 2014 – The luxurious ecological oasis of Bushmans Kloof Wilderness Reserve & Wellness Retreat, located in the breath-taking Cederberg Mountains, is presenting a range of delectable dining experiences in spectacular venues within the reserve for this festive season.
Unlike Europeans who enjoy a ‘white Christmas’, we in South Africa have the luxury of enjoying the festivities in summer under the warm African sun. We love the idea of taking it further, and relishing the festivities in the African bush with a unique wilderness adventure with family and friends.
The three times voted Best Hotel for Food in Africa by Condé Nast Traveller UK’s Gold List is offering amazing culinary experiences this December. These include a traditional Christmas Eve dinner, prepared and served by Executive Chef Floris Smith, at the Makana where guests will be privy to festively decorated dining tables, and a celebratory Shanty Town themed party at Embers to ring in the New Year in a magical outdoor venue deep in the reserve. Perched on a dramatic cliff overlooking the spectacular valley below, Embers makes for unique venue to New Year’s Eve revelry. A special highlight will be the live music and dance performances with Bushmans Kloof’s very own champion Riel dance troupe, Die Nuwe Graskoue Trappers taking the spotlight.
If like us who like to take in more magical surroundings and majestic views, the Relais & Châteaux eco lodge is offering a 3-night Summer Getaway package valid until 19 December 2014. There is something special for families too, with a 3-night Family Fun getaway. The Family Fun getaway provides plenty of supervised fun and activities designed to keep children entertained these holidays. The dates of the Family Fun getaway are: Fri 12 – Mon 15 Dec, and Mon 15 – Thu 18 Dec.
