Oh how I loved it there. I stayed for a day. One unforgettable day! What amazing service I'm lucky to have had the best safari guide ever. He was so informative & fun. Thanks for a great experience. It was raining when I was there & I still had the time of my life.

Staying at the Botlierskop Private Game Reserve was an incredible experience. The service and food is great, everyone tries teir best to make you enjoy yourself. They have all sorts of wildlife there, you can feed and ride on elephants and even walk with lions. Highly recommended.

From the moment we arrived at reception, we were treated like VIP's. The staff is very friendly and extremely helpful. You can't help but switch off completely and have a relaxing time at Botlierskop.

Wow! From the minute we got there and had a welcome glass of champagne to the minute we (sadly) had to leave we were bowled over. Service (thanks Christoo) was fantastic. Food was some of the best I have ever tasted and the tents were awesome. An hour after we checked in we had cheeky monkeys outside our tent which made us laugh. Would recommend the horseback safari and especially the catwalk with the 2 young lions. For breakfast and dinner we were spoiled for choice and if you don't want to walk, the staff will drive you in their buggy to your tent.

Room Tip: Stay in a tent for an authentic experience.

My husband and I spent two days here. It was so absolutely lovely. We both enjoyed the service we received from our arrival to when we left. The food was so good and our highlight of our stay has got to be the Lion Walk! What a wonderful encounter and something we would most likely never have experienced. A definate must! The game drive is just as worth it.

Room Tip: Choose a luxury tent it adds value to your experience!

So this trip was planned 3 months prior thanks to a Daddy's deal promotion that caught my eye (and my pocket). It was the perfect way to surprise my wife and looked like a good place to get away. We drove through a little dirt road for about 4km and finally came upon the entrance to Botlierksop. Before even going through the gates the surrounding and setup had taken our breathe away and i knew this would be an awesome couple of days!! We were greeted at the gate and told to park the car in the designated area where we were collected and taken to reception. From the time we were booked in to the time we left all we experienced was 110% service, with a smile and a willingness to accomodate our every request - I would really like to thank Botlierskop for an awesome experience. I could write quite a bit more about our stay but i will keep it short this time :)... We WILL be back!
