Visited only for the game drive which was amazing. We were lucky to see all the animals and our driver, Mandela, went above and to ensure we see as much as possible. Didn't stat but the place looks amazing.

Amazing place, amazing safari game reserve. This was the second time for us in this place. For couples without kids my recommendation is to sleep at the manor house in the main lodge. The main lodge is better then the village lodge.

(Important note): the safari tour is not for people who suffer from back pain unless if you want to break your back, the big Mitsubishi truck isn’t for human use. The Land cruiser seems to be much comfortable. Other than that, the tour guide and the staff is friendly. The tour is amazing you will get to see very beautiful views, the big 4 animals, and many other beautiful creatures.

I tried a day safari and it was nice except the vehicle we rode a large truck which was extremely uncomfortable. You will bounce violently for the smallest bumps. If you do not hold tightly you might fall outside. It was a cumbersome 4 hours journey. The guide was very nice but the vehicle is for commercial use not for humans. Now I am suffering from bad back pain. If I was aware I would not take this ride. The people who rode the land cruiser were better off given its moderate elevation from the ground unlike the truck. Also the Land Cruiser seats more comfortable than the truck seats. I don’t know based on what they have chosen this vehicle for us. What caughted my attention is the passengers in the three land-cruisers were Europeans while all passengers in the truck were Arabs……..!!!!!

We have done 6 safaris in the last 3 months and we started our with 7 days at Botlierskop. After experiencing many others I have to say that they were the best one we did. The elephants walked by our room one afternoon, we saw a cheetah try to hunt down dinner for herself and her 3 cubs, we did a 2 hour horse back ride safari every day, we saw the male Lion roar and the elephants play. It was truly and unforgettable experience in a stunning location. Our guides were the best we had out of all of our game drives.

My 2 children (age 10 and 15) and I had the most wonderful experience at Botlierskop. The deluxe tent we stayed in was so luxurious with stunning views, the game drives were fun and informative and we saw plenty of animals, the food was delicious and the friendliness of the staff was the cherry on the top. A wonderful family break.

We stayed at The Village this past weekend. Rooms are lovely. Food was great. Very friendly and helpful staff. The restaurant and play area is great for kids. Definitely recommend The Village at Botlietskop for a nice family weekend.

We went here for our baby-moon and had a great time. We stayed for 4 nights and it was incredibly restful. We stayed in the Deluxe tented rooms, and they were beautiful with an indoor and outdoor shower, beautiful big bed and doors opening up to a beautiful view. We even had some monkeys entertain us for a while (thankfully the door was closed at this point). The game was great and we enjoyed our drive with a very knowledgeable ranger. The spa facilities were fantastic, and the treatments were amazing. They even have pregnancy massages. The only downfall for us was the food, especially dinner. We just felt like the food could have been better quality (in particular the non-meat options) and had a bit more variety for the price point. But overall, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay and we hope to be back in the future.
