Have just returned from three weeks in South Africa & one week in Malawi and what a wonderful trip. The highlight of our holiday was our visit to Botlierskop Game Reserve where we spent three nights of absolute luxury. The moment we arrived we were met by Marco our Ranger & I knew it was going to be something very... More

Upon arriving we were impressed with the views and the archtecture of the whole set up. They immediately try to impress you with luxury. Valet parking, offer to have a glass of champagne (we preferred a cup of fine Rooibos tea) on the beautiful terrace or in the very attractive and spacious restaurant. The luxury tent "room" is almost laughable... More

We spent 3 days and nights at the Reserve and enjoyed every minute of our stay. We slept in the luxurious and wonderfully quiet tented suites on the banks of a little stream. What a peaceful setting to enjoy a glass of wine on the terrasse at sunset! The main manor is easily reached walking or by "taxi", which picks... More

Rhinos, Zebras and Wildebeests could be spotted from our room in The Manor House. Game Drives were fantastic. Very friendly staff. Thanks to all of them. The Rooms are luxurious, the pool in front of the Manour House is fabulous. And the food was delicious!!!

I went straight to the elephant fed . The handlers are fantastic . Then we took the safari around the park. Which was brilliant. The guide... More

We stayed here for 2 nights in the newly converted stables at the Manor House. Having been on Safari before I preferred this type of accommodation to the tented rooms and the setting was amazing. The manor house is in a fabulous position and we woke on the 2nd day to Rhinos in front grazing in front of the unit.... More

Great location with the most helpful staff. Everything you wish for: good food, friendly people, wonderful setting. But...you can't get away from feeling it is a large zoo. Everywhere you look there is a fence or barbed wire. Although the reserve is large enough (40 km2), you soon have the feeling of seeing the same thing twice. Two game drives... More

Our 2-nights-stay at Botlierskop Game Reserve for 2 nights coulnd't be any better. After arriving, you are directly assigned to a "personal ranger" who takes care about your "adventure programme" (cat walk, horse safari, Game drive) during your whole stay. If you are intersted in Spa Treatments, book them in advance and not upon arrival as availabilities can be limited.... More
