Bushman's Cave

Bushman’s Cave

Bushman’s Cave Amphitheatre was founded in 2002 by Erik & Melinda Milander on their farm about 35 km outside Clanwilliam.  Several of the country’s top artists have performed at this beautiful open air theatre.  Bushmans Cave also offers the option of self catering cottages or camping with full ablution facilities, electricity, and a swimming pool.

In 2013, Reini Fichtinger, Zlu Haller, Killian Fischhuber, Anna Stöhr & co. spent 3 weeks developing the bouldering on Erik & Melinda’s farm.  They developed about 75 problems (25 on the right and 50 on the left side of the road).  Zlu Haller has said, “I can honestly say that some of them definitely belong to the best I’ve ever climbed.”

The bouldering is all easily accessible within a 5 to 10 minutes walk from the parking. All problems in the Taj Mahal area are located to the right of the main road – Taj Mahal (V9) is probably under the Top 3 in routes in Rocklands in this grade.  There are also tons of problems just 5 minutes to the left of the main road.
