A Big thank you especially to Paul for a warm welcome and great game drive! The tent was a pleasant experience. We will do it again and next time for more days . Horse riding was a wonderful way of getting close to the rhinos. We felt safe all along.

We were tired and weary on arrival and delighted with the this hidden gem awaiting us. We were greeted by extremely friendly and informative guides and shown our private luxurious tented cabin amongst the buck roaming around. We left revitilised after a proffessional massage and left with heavy hearts as we would of loved to have stayed longer.

We have never been disappointed. Our two day stay at Botlierskop was no different. Food was beyond excellent - from the dinners where your meat, including game... More

We loved each adventure at Botlierskop! We had a fantastic afternoon safari and horseback safari. Our host, Marco, was most attentive and our children enjoyed the junior ranger program he took them on. Overall, the food, the service, the room and the tours were superior!! We look forward to our next stay!!

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.
