Always a pleasure to return to this piece of paradise in the Southern Cape. The service was impeccable from the time we booked in and as always the food was absolutely great. The friendly staff needs to be complimented for their dedication to superb service delivery and then of course the view from our room and the overall scenery was just breathtaking. We are looking forward to more wonderful stays at this establishment in future.

Our two days at Botlierskop was a wonderful experience. Arriving there we were welcomed by the friendly staff. We were offered a drink while signing in. We were transported to our tented accommodation which was amazing with a lovely balcony to relax and enjoy the scenery. With the cold weather the aircon and electric blanket kept us warm. Our first night we were surprised by an elephant who decided to destroy the tree in front of our balcony. Electric fencing kept us safe. Was amazing being so close to the animal. Food at the restaurant was delicious. Game drive was a wonderful experience and lots of fun with our friendly guide. Enjoyed snacks and drinks in the veld afterwards. The Spa was great - loved the massage and heated pool. Staff at Botlierskop gets 10/10. ...........friendly and helpful. Thank you, we loved it!

We so enjoyed our 2 nights at Botlierskop-pity it was only 2! Our room with the jacuzzi outside was fantastic, comfortable, spacious and spotless. All meals were delicious and well served. Our game drive with Simba was excellent-good sightings, plenty of knowledge and we ended off with the lions! Every member of staff gave us superb service-we will definitely be back!!
