Botlierskop Private Game Reserve
Hidden paradise
We loved this little hidden paradise so much that we are considering it to be the venue for our wedding! That should say quite a lot! The property and setting is a "must see". The staff and their service is not only friendly but also knowledgeable and at all times helpful. The activities offered are multiple and in our view world class! Although the bar is set high, you can't possibly be other than amazed if you choose to stay here. We rate it 10/10 and can't wait to get back!

Fantastic place which I would definitely recommend. Very friendly staff. We saw 4 of the big 5. Loved the charming decor and cosy feel of the place. Indoor and outdoor fires. The manor house suite was luxurious and the heated infinity pool had stunning views, the food was delicious (including the crocodile!) Unfortunately the spa massage was very average - that being the only negative.

Botlierskop Game Reserve and Cat Walk
Botlierskop Game Reserve was a memorable experience, from the moment we arrived, we were treated impeccably. The service throughout was faultless. Our two Game Drives were informative and led by Loundice who did really well in both finding the animals, driving and imparting a great deal of knowledge. Lunch, dinner and breakfast were all of a very high standard and variety. We fitted so much into our 24 hour stay, even a swim in the pool. The luxury tent was set in a tranquil setting, across a stream we pulled ourselves over by punt. On our way to the punt for our 0600 game drive, a family of 3 giraffes, ambled close by us. We opted to do the Cat Walk as an extra, the afternoon we left. This is a walk with lions, no touching allowed, but walking is close In close proximity, under the instruction of guides, a great experience.

Amaizong and close up wild life.
It was an amazing drive, we did 2 drives and the catwalk in the neighbor state. We had an amaizong time. Very small group, personalized, felt like private. Guides are very knowledgeable. Food was splendid. Will do it again!

Beautiful lodge set amidst the rolling hills
Botlierskop is an amazing lodge set in beautiful rolling hills above Mossel Bay. The rooms were incredibly comfortable and the food at the lodge was great. The Little Brak River goes right by the lodges and there is a grassy area between the main lodge and the river that a lot of the animals like to graze at. Our rooms were right next to this area and had a great view of rhino, wildebeest, bontebok, impala, etc. Keep in mind this is a small game reserve and won't be a game viewing experience like Chobe, Kruger, or even Madikwe. The safari here is set among a beautiful drive in the Western Cape hills. I think of it more as a scenic drive with the chance to see animals rather than a drive to see animals that also includes some scenic views. It is a much different experience than the usual game drive and quite enjoyable. If you are going to do the Garden Route or Cape Town in addition to a safari at a big park then stopping here for a couple of days is a nice add-on that is different than what you will experience at the big game park. The horseback riding here looked incredible and is something I plan on doing when I return. They also did a great job of accommodating my 88 year old grandmother who has some difficulty getting around. The staff was very, very helpful. Our game guide Chris was quite knowledgeable and had some funny stories. We stayed for two nights which I think was about the right length.
