EXPLORE would like to thank Bushmans Kloof for giving three orphaned boys a wonderful and unique experience!
This month Bushmans Kloof generously donated a 2 night stay for 3 of Cape Town’s orphaned boys, sponsored by Cape Town based Children’s Aids Art Programme (CAAP).
Bushmans Kloof Wilderness Reserve and Wellness Retreat is an extraordinary haven nestled at the foothills of the Cederberg mountains near Cape Town. Malaria and predator free, the reserve is a natural playground with wide open plains, mystical rock formations, crystal clear water falls, and an abundance of flora and fauna. The warm, caring service and hospitality, delicious organic cuisine, breathtaking dining venues, superb facilities and accommodation have repeatedly won Bushmans Kloof international recognition and awards and provided the boys with an experience that was well beyond their wildest dreams.
Mary Miyata, founder of CAAP, said “the boys were over the moon with excitement!” CAAP has made a marked difference to the plight of countless AIDS-afflicted orphans. Founded in 2005 by Mary, the first CAAP art school was successfully opened in 2009 at the Baphumelele Children’s Home in the township of Khayelista, South Africa. The children are regularly taken out for exciting excursions on the weekends giving them opportunities to encounter new experiences, such as art lessons and exhibitions, exposing them to everyday life and practices that would otherwise have remained unknown to them.]
