Highly recommend Botlierskop. My husband and I had our 10 year anniversary and his birthday celebrated at the reserve. Thank you to all the staff that put so much thought and special details to our stay. We will definitely come again.

Absolutely a fabulous place for a weekend away, My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay and was very impressed with the efficiency of all the staff. Each and every person went the extra mile to be helpful and hospitable. We had a wonderful game drive which was well informative and I managed to capture some great photo's of Lions which I will post. The evening meal was very tasty and we thoroughly enjoyed.

What a wonderful place! The main lodge is very nice with a wonderful terrace where you can eat / drink and enjoy the views. The luxury tented accommodation was just that! The turndown service ensured we returned from dinner to a warm room and bed, with the electric blanket already put on for us. My steak at lunch was fantastic. Lastly, the game drives were wonderful - seeing the animals, having a knowledgeable guide, the drinks stop and even hot water bottles for the cold, early morning game drive. We would love to go again.

This is a very private game reserve and a great stop on the way to (or from) the Garden Route. Lots of rhinos around. Also saw a group of giraffes, zebras and lots of other animals. The landscape itself is worth a visit and our guides were super friendly. I would say that 2-3 hours are about the perfect to spend there if you're driving through.

I did both the horseback safari and the game drive. I came to Botlierskop from Cape Town because of their great deals on horseback safaris, and I am BEYOND impressed with the experience. Wilmarie and Jerome were the most courteous and accommodating guides, and the horses are some of the most well-trained I have ever had the privilege of riding! I originally booked a 2 hour ride, but asked to extend to 3 hours because I was having so much fun! Highly recommend the horseback safari for anyone, but especially for experienced riders as you often get a private safari. Because of the horses, you are unable to view lions, but you can view everything else. If you are looking for a more close-up look at the animals, the game drive is much better for this. Our guide worked very hard to ensure that the guests were able to get up close to all the animals, was very funny, and had a wealth of knowledge about every animal. 10/10 would recommend the horseback safari and game drive at Botlierskop! Also, the staff was very helpful and friendly and remembered me when I returned the following morning for my game drive. Overall, everything is a great value for the cost, and Botlierskop clearly cares for their animals, staff, and guests.

We had a fantastic time. The accommodations were wonderful. We stayed in the deluxe tents and liked being close to the lodge. The staff was very friendly. Food was excellent. Silas took us on our Safari and we were impressed by his knowledge of and passion for the animals. My family really enjoyed our stay and wished we had planned for more days.

What an amazing experience! The accommodation is top notch, the facilities excellent and the food was awesome. BUT the absolute best part of the experience is the level of professionalism of the staff. They truly go out of their way to make you feel at home. And they are extremely friendly. A rarity these days! Well done.

Exceeded my expectations. The staff are friendly and welcoming making you feel like family. They are always one step ahead. The decor and design of the tents and the main lodge are top notch. Absolutely beautifully done. Food is incredible. One of the best game lodges I've been to for the price. I couldn't recommend it more.

review by Morgana Wingard


From the moment we arrived we were made to feel very welcome. Stuart met us where we parked the car arranged for our luggage to be taken to our luxury tent.We had tea with the elephants not long after. We wanted a taster for a safari we only stayed one night. My partner left a lot of cash hanging out of her pocket on bed in a hurry. We came back the bed had been turned down and the cash was still there. There is a safe my partner just forgot to put cash in it. Just one very minor point on the directions it says little brak river. However it is klien brak river on signpost off N2 it means the same. Luckily i speak a bit of dutch and knew what it meant so i found the game reserve. Overall fantastic wish we had stayed a couple of nights. All staff very friendly and helpful especially Stuart.

"Exceeded our expectations"

Excellent, unique experience. Tents are great. My wife would even consider camping if this was the norm. Service was first class. Game wardens were very helpful. Game reserve far exceeded our expectations. WE had been warned that "Private Game reserves were large safari parks. In Boltierskop's case this is not so. We were entranced by coming across giraffes eating in the trees and water buffalo appearing to want to charge the truck. Running impala and mad wildebeests set off the whole trip.Food was good; not excellent. Experience was excellent not just good. The write up does not do justice to the game reserve and game ride. Note: Binoculars provided for each tent. Very thoughtful.
