The road to Bushmans Kloof passes through some of South Africa's most beautiful, yet least explored countryside. Rolling wheatfields and wide vistas sweep over the rich, black soil of the Swartland. Lush green citrus groves line the route past Citrusdal. The climb over the Pakhuis Pass winds through gargantuan clusters of mottled orange boulders - a giants playground of weird shapes and forms that lead to the entrance to Bushmans Kloof. The road from Cape Town to the lodge gate is now fully tarred.
