Bushmans Kloof Wilderness Reserve and Wellness Retreat Sponsorship

The Cape Leopard Trust has been fortunate enough to have, over the past 4 years, the ongoing and generous support of one of the world’s best tourism establishments. Bushmans Kloof, set in the northern Cederberg, was voted as the worlds best hotel in the Travel and Leisure magazine in 2009. Furthermore, their contribution towards conservation has been outstanding.

We were recently invited out to the lodge to receive a cheque of R60,000.00.

Two leopards, Amber (F9) and Kooitjie (M7) were both captured and collared on Bushmanskloof, providing valuable insight into the movements and behaviour of these solitary and extremely elusive felids.

We would like to thank the staff and Bushmans Kloof for their loyal support.
