“Botlierskop Game Reserve offers a first class lodge with fabulous food. Our luxury room in the Manor House was spacious and had a patio that offered a first-hand view of the wildlife grazing in the back. The bed was very comfortable. The dinner buffet included a large assortment of meat and fish selections and my wife and I used the opportunity to sample ostrich, springbok and crocodile cooked on the grill (in addition to the beef, pork and chicken options); very delicious. And desert was superb... : )
From a wildlife perspective, Botlierskop certainly offers a "tamer" experience. We enjoyed the half-hour elephant ride on the day of our arrival and the walk with lions on the following morning. We also fed the elephants to continue our close-up encounters with the animals.
As our first "game" stop on our month-long vacation to South Africa, my wife and I fully enjoyed our stay at Botlierskop. Wildlife aside, it would make for a romantic get-away at any time of the year.”
