We saw lots of animals we did not expect to see, and as an added bonus we could see the sea from the reserve as well! What a view!The food was five star and the lodge is beautifully decorated. We also had an excellent guide named Niel, who gave us a lot of info we have not come across before.

Once again I cannot rate this place highly enough. It is my seventh visit with visitors who loved every minute of their stay. Christo our guide was amazing, going that extra mile to make our stay enjoyable, finishing with a family horse ride on well behaved, well trained horses. A big thanks to all the staff of Botlierskop.

BPGM is a wonderful place to visit. Their facilities are 5 star, their food was delicious, and the staff is very welcoming. I went on their advanced riding package (though they offer riding at all levels) and was not disappointed. The horses are well taken care of, responsive, and sure footed. We viewed all of the game on the property... More

We had a great stay. The staff is very accommodating and we can only recommend the establishment. We saw the 4 of the big FIVE and we feel that we received value for our monies spend. We could not believe that we saw so much in only two days.
