What an excellent overnight stay we had, travelling from the Western to the Eastern Cape. Next time we would like to stay much, much longer! The room in the Manor House was beautiful and comfy - with one of the most comfortable beds we ever slept in! All the luxuries and amenities one would expect from such an establishment. We...

We visited Botlierskop as part of a two week holiday to the Seychelles and South Africa. The accommodation was wonderful, the food beautiful and the game drive spectacular. Having preciously been to the much larger and more congested Kruger, I would not hesitate to recommend Botlierskop to friends and family. A true South African gem.

Our second time at this reserve so our expectations were high and it did not disappoint. Whilst not the biggest game reserve it does mean that you get to see all the main animals. Accommodation and catering up to usual high standards. One downside - lack of a heated pool means that you can only get to swim comfortably in...

We stayed here for 3 nights on full board in a luxury tent. The tent was very impressive with all you needed in there, very peacelful with the occasional wildlife visitor.

We spent a marvelous two days at the reserve. The experience was wonderful. The staff went out of their way to assist and make us feel special. Highly recommended. The accommodation was fun in tented huts surrounded by nature.
