Accommodation South Africa

Buchu Bush Camp is located around 70 km east of Cape Agulhas, the southern-most tip of Africa and a mere 1 km from the main gate of the De Hoop Nature Reserve. Situated 35 km off the N2 highway between Cape Town and the Garden Route, Buchu Bushcamp is comfortably under three hours drive from both Cape Town and George. Just 175km due east of Cape Town, Buchu Bushcamp lies just out of the winter rainfall region. It’s the warm Indian Ocean that does it! As one travels east from Cape Agulhas rainfall tends to be spread throughout the year, with the result that winter days are, more often than not, clear and crispy, while the summer heat is tempered by the odd shower or two. It really is a perfect year-round destination. “Comfortable Rustic” best describes the spacious three-star accommodation at Buchu Bushcamp. Three stars was all we were willing to aim for in this unique “back-to-nature” bushcamp; more stars and it could hardly be called a “rustic bushcamp”, though of course there are plenty of stars to gaze at in host clear night skies!
