We stayed at Botlierskop for a Birthday celebration together with friends. A very warm welcome at check-in, amazing decorated rooms (we stayed in the executive suites), a great birthday cake as a surprise in the room and well trained and very friendly staff made our stay a memorable one. Can highly recommend this place.
We stayed in one of the luxury tents and really enjoyed the experience. The service is great and staff very helpful. Food at the restaurant was good and the breakfast above average. Tents are well equipped and very comfortable
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.
My Girlfriend and I visited for just two nights during April 2021. We were looking for a short safari which was fairly close to Cape Town. Botlierskop was recommended by family and turned out to be the perfect choice. The staff were super attentive, food was delectable, guides were informative, knowledgeable and engaging and the scenery was beautiful. Breakfast on the deck overviewing the valley where the fat Unicorns were grazing was exactly the type of experience that my girlfriend and I wanted. And it exceeded my own expectations in leaps and bounds. Thank you for a memorable experience.
My fiancé and I came here just after getting engaged, it was the perfect little staycay for us whilst in South Africa, we were booked onto the Spa Package which was amazing. We were greeted with warmth on arrival and were made to feel extra special, everything was explained to us clearly and we signed up for a picnic for the following day. We stayed in a Luxury Tent, which was beautifully decorated, and well thought out. A stunning 4 poster bed with an outdoor shower and indoor bath. We had such a picturesque view, which our bed looked out onto. We had dinner and breakfast included into our package, and the food was exceptional and our service waitress (we had the same one both nights, sadly we cannot remember her name) made the experience, she was friendly, personable and attentive to us and all her allocated tables. The next morning we had our couples massage and took advantage of the free access to the indoor heated pool, we definitely recommend a treatment here, we loved our deep tissue massages. Despite there being a little confusion with the picnic menu (miscommunication between us and the person who explained it to us) The whole picnic experience was amazing, the food was delicious, there was plenty for both of us and the location spot was dreamy. That afternoon we went on our game drive with other guests staying at the lodge, the experience was like none other. Informative, up and close with most of the animals, with sunset drinks and snack stop part of the way round. Rico was our game ranger, and made the experience so special for us all. (Although all game rangers we bumped into I have no doubt would have delivered an exceptional game drive, as they were all soo friendly and helpful) We had breakfast delivered to our tent for our last morning, which was a nice treat to have breakfast in bed. There were just a few things that we’d like to feedback on... The shelves in our tent were dusty when we arrived and I had to wipe them before popping our clothes on them. A couple of sliding shelves were broken (however we reported this to reception and the said they’d send someone to look at it) The batteries in our aircon remote were dead and therefore couldn’t operate the aircon (we also reported this after our first night and nothing was done about it) We also asked reception for ice to our room, as we were passing after our picnic and they said yes. We never received it. The Spa - the indoor heated swimming pool needed a clean, there were a number of tissues, which my partner picked most of it out and put in the side. We also advised the staff of the situation. - the showers in the spa, the body wash and shampoo pumps were not working/empty. This is something that should definitely be check every morning/throughout the day. We left the spa just after midday, and it wasn’t particularly busy when we were there. Overall our experience was exceptional, great covid measures in place, the staff were welcoming and helpful. We will go again some day but next time we’d look to stay in one of the Executive Suites. …
