We did a half day drive here in Jan '13. They have a few animals of each type - and a couple of lions in a fenced off area. Its sort of a crosse between a zoo and a game park.

We can't comment on the accomodation but we had a great day trip to Botlierskop. We started with an hour Elephant Walk, followed by a 3 hour game drive, lunch and then the walk with Lions.

This is not a huge park, and the animals will obviously get used to seeing the vehicles, which for us was good as we could get a lot closer to animals and take some great photos with the animals being caged, especially the walk with lions. Be warned that the drive to the lions is quite long (3/4 hour each way) over rough dirt roads, but boy was it worth it.

The staff we had for all 3 elements of our day were all friendly and professional. An excellent day.

Three of us had an amazing experience on a three hour safaris.Neil was our guide and was knowledgeable about the animals and he was friendly.
We all want to return to stay at hotel and experience other activities.

We went on the 3 hour Game Drive and enjoyed it very much. Guide was very informative, giving chance for enough pictures and making sure we get the most out of the Game Drive.

We were in the country for business and I wanted to see wild animals. Our hotel in Wilderness recommended Botlierskop. It's a beautiful facility with ostrich egg sconces and coffee with scones while you're waiting for your tour. We saw a beautiful assortment of wild animals in an unhurried informative tour tailored to whatever we wanted to ask. The highlight for us was a suggested add-on called the Cat Walk. I won't spoil it for you. Just don't miss it--our friends could not believe how close we were to those gorgeous beings.
