We just heard from our friends at Bushmans Kloof: It’s the height of the African summer and Bushmans Kloof is reporting that they are experiencing temperatures in the high 30’s and even 40 degrees Celsius. The Bushmans Kloof Lodge is chock-a-block, and here at midday, many of their guests are lounging in the cool shade, taking rejuvenating dips in the pools, and enjoying the signature beverage – chilled iced Rooibos tea.
Typical of the Fynbos Biome ‘Mediterranean climate’, Bushmans Kloof Game Reserve is undergoing its normal dry spell this time of the year. Guests are experiencing exceptional animal sightings as many large fauna make their way from the hills in the Northern and Northeastern parts of the reserve, to their three large dams. One of these prominent species is the Gemsbok, which is almost entirely independent of standing water, and always provides a magnificent sight here in its natural habitat.
Summer has also brought with it many of Nature’s true wonders and miracles: newborn Springbok lambs making their debut and the beauty of Agapanthus in full bloom.
And talking about conservation, Fred was very proud to swap his khaki bush gear for a formal dinner suit to represent Bushmans Kloof at the recent glittering Relais & Chateaux awards that were held in Monaco in November 2006, where Bushmans Kloof received the coveted Environment Trophy 2007 for its outstanding conservation achievements.
They are also excited to bring readers news of plans to renovate a glorious traditional farmhouse on the reserve to create a private wilderness experience as an all – year round venue. This will provide exclusive accommodation to a family with children or couples travelling together.
