My husband and I chose this game reserve to celebrate our 31st wedding anniversary. We stayed from 28th to 30th August 2015. I cannot express our total awe of this little piece of paradise!! Such 5-star treatment where nothing is too much for the staff to handle. EG: we phoned reception for a bucket of ice, and from the lodge... More

Really glad we chose Botlierskop for a couple of nights. Excellent luxury tented accommodation by the river, with our very own Eland who likes apples! The main Lodge is a great building to sit, and relax with the biggest fireplaces I've ever seen. We (2 x adults + 2 x 15 year olds) did the Lion walk with the lions... More

Wow, this place is amazing. On arrival our luggage was collected from the car and taken to the room. They also parked the car for me. We were introduced to our guide and was shown to a comfortable seating area in the main building. After receiving a lovely drink and snacks we completed the registration papers. We were then taken...

Flawless service from a 5 star hotel and game reserve. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay in the Stables suite at the hotel. Everything was perfect. The restaurant offers the best cuts of game meat, and scrumptious meals. The service is top notch. We had the pleasure of enjoying the Cat Walk and the Game Drive whilst there and both were fantastic.... More

The staff were friendly and helpful. They park your car on arrival and then give you a welcome drink (MCC) and snacks. They take you to your tent as you cant reach it by car. Game drive was awesome with lots of animals to see and a nice snack on the drive. The cat walk is a must. The selection... More

This is a garden of Eden. You arrive after a few kms on dirt road and just relax into one of the loveliest places I have been. The staff are fantastic - Ayrton our guide sorted out timings for what we wanted to do so we could just relax. The main lodge/restaurant is attractive with log fires and all glass... More

Incredible from the first moment we arrived. They do EVERYTHING for you and they are truly world class, top notch. Went to two other establishments for the remainder of our trip, but sadly should've stayed at Botlierskop and had a far better stay. They make the other places look like amateurs, they really set the bar high. Wonderful place that... More

We were a group of 4 staying here for 2 nights and all of us thoroughly enjoyed it here - from the moment you enter at the gates, the personal greeting and reception at the building entrance, the welcome drinks and snack, the confirmation of the reservation and what it all includes, to the transport to the tents, where the...

A truly 5 star experience from the food to accomodation to the staff members! Highly recommended! Recommended to go on the lion walk and afternoon game drive. The spa is also superb. Not one bad word!
