The reserve is rich in Bushman rock art with over 130 pristine sites, some dating as far back as 10,000 years ago making them one of the oldest recorded examples of human art. 755 Indigenous plant species have been identified within the reserve, including Bushmans Kloof’s own ‘Cederberg Seven’ – an endemic group of species. From July through to October the veld comes alive with spring flowers, revealing the colors of thousands of beautiful, and some unusual, spring flowers.
