I had a wonderful experience at Botlierskop. I was amazed at the decadence, considering that the full package price seemed to be less than at other places. If you are looking for an opportunity to get close to the animals, take great pictures, and eat like royalty, come to Botlierskop. If you want a really vast and the most natural... More

Thank you for a memorable stay at Botlierskop. The location, animals, fynbos smells, food and personalised attention from staff made this a truly incredible experience. One thing I could ask is that you extend the kiddies food menu. Thank you for a wonderful holiday.

The staff went out of their way to provide an excellent experience. Offered a flexible itinerary and we got to pet the baby elephant. They even delivered a forgotten camera to us in Mossel Bay after we had checked out.

Stunning location, beautiful accommodation. Special touches - turn down service, heated blankets, choccie on pillow, fruit basket, tea & coffee & rusks, muscadel snd an optional mini bar. Very friendly staff. Most amazing experiences walking with lions, riding and feeding elephants. Excellent food and lots to do. Look forward to going back someday. The game is literally on your doorstep.... More

We were there for our anniversary and for such an occasion we always set very high standards. Botlierskop met them all. We did the horseriding, game drive and elephant back ride and each activity was great in itself. Only sad we didn't book the spa in advance as it was fully booked when we arrived. The food was excellent and... More

We had a fantastic time. Their service was really awesome, we even received a complimentary bottle of bubbly for our anniversary. Beautiful luxury tents with very cool outside showers. The highlights were definitely the elephant back rides and walking with the lions! We have been on a few game drives in the past and this was just a completely different... More

Staff is well trained. All are professional and friendly Not much game seen for the price paid. Good menus overall. A lot of racist guests (neighbouring chalet) and comments made as we were the only black people there, plus we were young. The electric blankets helped a great deal as it gets very chilly Gas heater for water used, can... More

Absolutely loved it! Everything about it- the staff, service, decor was incredible! Very knowledgeable guides and we did the lion walk and the game drive. The lion walk is an experience not to be missed! Only stayed two nights but could have stayed happily so much longer! Will be back!

We have just left after spending 2 days here and it was fantastic in all departments. From the game drive to walking with the lions it was top notch , attentive staff and great food make this a perfect place to stay. Drummers entertaining with the outside fire going in a stunning setting . Will definitely return .

Botlierskop now rates as one of my favourite places ever. To be clear, this is not a really 'wild' safari as one would expect in the northern parts of South Africa near Kruger or the other parks. This is an accessible safari experience for travellers while in the Western Cape. It is still an amazing experience, We were not really... More
