Beautiful in every way and a real lovely treat from the location and beautiful views, the lovely infinity pool, the outstanding dining area, lounge and outside area to the most beautiful luxury tent you could ever wish for with an outside dual shower. It's a... More

Beautiful private game reserve with opportunity to spot the big five. Accomodation in luxurious chalet style tents (with the occasional spider - so be prepared phobics!) across a river to be crossed by pontoon float. Game drives, horse riding, bush walks, canoeing and the additional not to be missed chance of walking with lions. Amazing food in a perfect ambiente.... More

My husband and I recently stayed here for 2 nights on our travels around South Africa. It was recommended to us so we were expecting something special but we could never have imagined quite how wonderful it would be. We wanted for nothing for our entire stay, friendly staff, knowledgeable guides, delicious food and the most fantastic views at every... More

Botlierskop is a beautiful safari option just a short drive from Mossel bay. WHich was perfect for my fiancee fathers first safari experience. The thing I like best about Botlierskop Private Game Reserve is that it is not advertised or marketed as a big 5 reserve. They say on their website that there is 4 out of the 5 of... More

A very enjoyable time. The staff were particularly helpful (especially Viljoen) and we learned much about the animals and the various aspects of the land management of a private reserve. The accommodation was excellent. The only area where we felt improvements could be made was the restaurant. Generally good but the main course in the evening was mainly limited to... More

We spent 4 days at the bush villa lodge on the watering hole at Botlierskop. As we arrived in the late afternoon, 2 rhino appeared in the clearing across the water. When the family came out of the lodge, turned to me and said unanimously that I had excelled with this place I knew it was going to be a... More
