This is my second review of Botlierskop but our first return visit since their recent upgrade. Our stay was truly spectacular and we are once again planning another visit since we are blessed enough to live only 4 hours away from this piece of heaven. We received 5 star treatment from the minute we arrived to the minute we left.... More

This is truly a wonderful place. We only stayed one night but it felt like home the moment we entered the reserve. Amazing staff and activities. We did a long horseride-observing zebras, rhinos elephants, wilderbeasts and a lot of 'boks'!! Today we had the elephant back ride-a must!! Food excellent as is the accommodation. 5 star luxury-not to be missed!!

Rooms / tents (that's tents with four-poster beds and 5 star luxury) - perfectly situated with stunning views and resident wildlife.... don't be put off by this - just make the most of the amazing photo opportunities! Restaurant - buffet style, but beautifully done. A wide selection of meats barbecued to your preferences... More

In the morning we did the Game Drive which was superb. We saw Giraffe, Lion, Rhino and many many more. Great knowledgeable staff. The dinner in the evening was great... More

We were made to feel like royalty from the moment we arrived. Accommodation is clean and well maintained. Turn down service done daily. What a pleasure to arrive back in the evening to have the electric blanket switched on. Meals were delicious and the best game meat I have ever tasted. Game drive is a must.

Heard about Botlierskop from couple we met while waiting in line at resturant in Holland. Since it was near Mossel Bay and although we already had rented house we stayed one night and did a game drive and following morning walk with lions. We stayed in tent near river and our assigned guide Jacques was great. The entire staff and... More

What an absolute gem - LOVED this place! Everyone is made to feel as important as the next - whether you're there as a day visitor or staying over. I went for a Horseback safari and Elephant feeding. Unfortunately the group of riders were rather inexperienced but I was taken for a lovely canter afterwards. The guides were super friendly... More
