Directions: Clanwilliam is 270km north of Cape Town on the N7. As you enter Clanwilliam, a petrol station is located on the left hand side. It’s a good idea to fill up here. There is no mobile reception after this point, so we ask that you please call the lodge here. We can then anticipate the time of your arrival. The number is +27 (0) 27 482 8200. The distance from Clanwilliam to the lodge gate is approximately 40km. Continue straight on the R364 towards Wupperthal and Calvinia. You will cross a bridge. Follow the tarred road for approximately 25km, past ‘Louis Leipoldt’s Grave’ and over the Pakhuis Pass. Cross a low bridge over the Brandewyns River. Continue past a sign on the left hand side to ‘Traveller’s Rest’. After travelling for 800m, the Bushmans Kloof gate will be on your right hand side. E-mail: Website.
