Great service
Jul 2021
From the moment we arrived nothing was to much trouble. The arrival was welcoming , friendly and professional all at the same time. COVID protocols were carried out thoroughly . We were a group of 5 and stayed in the tents which were clean and very cozy with a heater and aircon. The game drive with Neil was very informative and he was a great host. It was good to see that none of the animals are caged , even the Lions need to hunt for themselves. Our spa treatments were great and the heated pool an extra bonus. It was an all round great experience and well worth it.

Awesome view and good food
Apr 2021 • Family
I would have given 5 stars if the table we booked and with our name on actually we allocated to us. A bit of poor internal communication. But alas the team were courteous and helpful. The meal was very well presented and very delicious. The rustic view with the wild never gets old. We had an enjoyable afternoon and will be seen again.

Best Game Reserve in SA
Apr 2021 • Couples
The quality of service we received made us feel right at home and part of the reserve!

We have visited alot of game reserves before but nothing compares to botlierskop. By far the best game drive we had and the best service with knowledgeable rangers will make your experience at botlierskop unforgettable. Delicious food, excellent service, friendly staff and booking activities with ease will definitely make us come back to botlierskop.

Arrogant and unhelpful ressrvation staff
Mar 2021
Awful booking service and attitude at reservations.
I've been trying to book for our 30th wedding anniversary for the past 3 days.
The first time I tried to confirm a booking after being offered two options I was told that was not actually available. I was offered an alternative, at a 50% price upgrade.
I then tried to book that, only to be informed that, that is also not available and offered something else altogether which had never been part of my enquiry. I thought I would make a phone call rather than keep going backward and forward via e-mail.
I was told that the first offer didn't make sense as that section of Botlierskop isn't even operational at present.. The second option was now booked out, and that it was my fault for not booking quickly enough and if I didn't book option 3 now I would miss that also. Absolute arrogant and unhelpful attitude all round. Perhaps the place itself is lovely, it came highly recommended from friends who go regularly, but I'll never get to find out as I certainly won't be repeating this unpleasant experience.

Day visit

I would like to say that I had a great trip. I got to see a whole variety of animals. My tour guide was very knowledgeable about them, and knew where to find them in the reserve.

Botlierskop Bush Villas
Jan 2021
Another stunning weekender right in our backyard!
We've stayed at the Botlierskop Tented Camp twice before, and thoroughly enjoyed that. For more space , the Bush Villas is a treat. Situated right ob the water where hippos float and buffalo come to drink, you almost don't need a game drive.The villa is beautifully designed and decorated, included everything you might need. Just bring your dinner and sit back o the swing outside, watch the sun set and giraffe prance by.

Fantastic SA hospitality as we've never had before!
Sep 2020 • Couples
Absolutely fantastic experience. Premier hospitality and game viewing in a beautiful setting where you can indulge in a variety of activities or lounge around as the abundant bird-life keeps you company. The staff are beyond friendly, attentive and accommodating with smiles aplenty. The food is surprisingly good, with enough variety and generous portions. We were in a luxury tent with all the regular amenities including electric blanket and more than enough coffee and rusks for your early morning riser who wants to watch the park come alive as birds start singing and the wild game mozy past your deck.

amazing lodge
Feb 2020
We had a half day trip booked at The Reserve as part of a 4 day garden route tour. We arrived fairly early to enjoy breakfast before the game drive. My first reaction when we walked in was WOW what an amazing place. The staff were very friendly and showed us to our tables, the choice for breakfast was extensive and you could also order fresh cooked breakfast items. We were then shown to our safari lorry, the guide was very informative but we were very disappointed by the amount of animals we saw. Only one Rhino, 3 lions, 3 elephants and a few Giraffe.
Would like to stay at the resort but wouldnt do the safai again

Brilliant game rangers and fantastic experience
Feb 2020 • Family
Absolutely fantastic and don’t forget your bathers so you can have have a dip after the game drive. 4 out of the big five (no leopard 🐆 but then again the promise was the chance to see only 4 of the big five). This game park is amazing and our driver was incredibly knowledgable. The set up is fantastic and it’s well worth a visit
