Botlierskop Game Reserve is sheer luxury, and also a good place to get away from it all. We were met with welcome drinks upon our arrival, and immediately whisked away on an afternoon game drive: the highlights for me were the two rhino sisters, and ‘tea with the elephants’. We enjoyed our room; it was comfortable, delightful and we liked the personal touches…I still have the beautiful welcome card from Jeanne-Mari of the staff, and kudos to the Reserve for supporting the Mossel Bay Craft Art Workshop. We made sure that we zipped up our tent from the inside, as we were advised to do…in case we had visitors during the night. We did not take advantage of the outdoor showers, as it was too cold outside to really enjoy the experience.
Dinner was wonderful, with a choice selection of steak, lamb, warthog, crocodile, pork, and good old faithful chicken, with delicious accompaniments. Dessert was equally an experience.
An early drive to ‘greet’ the lions was arranged for my partner; it clashed with my spa treatment, and I opted for the latter, as I could always return for another visit. Breakfast was good, we were able to have a leisurely one, with no staff hovering around, and definitely plan to return for a second visit…we were just there for the night.
