          Bad experience never to be repeated!”
          Our 40 year wedding anniversary celebration turned sour. Water in the accommodation was not palatable and had a strange taste. No free water was supplied for drinking purposes! The lodge was doing alterations and workers were along the pathways doing VERY NOISY JOBS WITH ANGLE GRINDERS AND HEAVY MACHINERY WORKING AROUND THE TENTS. Being woken up in the morning by angle grinders and a loader is TOTALLY UNACCEPTABLE! The manager tried to pacify us with Spa vouchers which was worthless as we were going on a game drive leaving early the following morning. Lighting in the chalet at the toilet was also nonexistant. The temperature in the tent was extremely cold and the airconditioner not effective. We had a pleasing game drive with Jade, he was very knowledgable,interesting and we thoroughly enjoyed his company.

          Good but was expecting more”
          We had gone to 2 private safari's on our trip (Buffelsdrift and Botlierskop) and unfortunately this one fell short on a few occasions. Upon our arrival, you could tell the staff took great care to make you feel at home, however, we were given so much wrong information which was very frustrating and spent a lot of time having to speak to the manager to get the right information. We really didn't feel the staff were trained up properly and were constantly being told "I don't know" on quite simple questions (cost of breakfast). Aside from this the grounds are beautiful and the experience is really lovely. We were in one of the Manor House rooms down the bottom on the park. The room was OK, but we really enjoyed the infinity pool on the plains where zebra and wildebeest were constantly moving around. The horseback safari was great, we went right up to the rhino's which was slightly nerve wracking but really special. The spa I would say to avoid - quite dirty and basic.

          This was not part of our itinerary and we came across it unintentionally. Our stay was fabulous. The game drive with Rico was exceptional. The all inclusive menu in the evening we found although delicious too much, especially without the facility to have a goo walk afterwards. Despite this we loved our stay.

          We enjoyed our stay here, staff welcome you on arrival and are very helpful in getting you settled in. The accommodation is very good, the luxury tents are well appointed with many extras you wouldnt expect. The game drive is also very good, we saw 4 of the big 5 as well as many other animals within 3 hours. Highly recommended.

          Fabulous, Intimate Experience”
          We were impressed from the moment we pulled up to Botlierskop. Kind, attentive workers greeted us and welcomed us with sparkling wine while they transported our luggage to our luxury tent. Excursions were offered (we had already booked ours), and then we were escorted to our room via golf cart. Note for children: hang on as the short drive is sometimes steep. Our morning drive was great, and we just called the front desk for a ride over to meet our group. Loved the outdoor shower (keep your eyes peeled for brightly colored frogs or other wild life that you may spot), and the oversized tub. We heard monkeys at night and woke up to giraffes eating fairly close to our room. Our morning drive was great, and we just called the front desk for a ride over to meet our group. Our game drive guide, Marco, did a wonderful job and answered any question that was thrown at him. Our luggage was already packed in our car for us by the time we returned from the game drive and check-out was a breeze! We enjoyed a wonderful buffet dinner (they reserve your table under your room number unless you notify them otherwise). Buffet including a soup, appetizer, palette cleanser, salad bar, variety of meats including crocodile, eland, beef, kudu.

          A super relaxing experience!”
          We celebrated our 24th wedding anniversary. The surroundings was beautiful and we enjoyed the openness and proximity to the wild animals. We really felt the owners vision for the reserve in the overall attention to detail. We were made to feel welcome and the attentiveness of the staff was wonderful. The food and SPA was outstanding. I would however recommend that the laundry area be move away from the guest area of the Manor House as the noise levels can be disruptive especially lying on the deck at the pool area.

          We really enjoyed our stay. The hotel and the rooms are so beautiful designed. Especially the hotel terrace with the view and dining room. The food was awesome. We liked the pool although it was quite cold, but you can watch wild beasts, Zebras and wild horses while Swimming. One negative Point not on the hotel, but on their attractions: We really did not like the Lion walk and the guided Safari as it seems like the animals are more or less in a zoo.

          A lovely tranquil escape... A pity some of the staff were not up to scratch on privacy and etiquette- we were phoned 22h20 while already asleep to confirm activities we had already declined! The lodge is beautifully built though and maximizes the views/ ambience, despite still having a slight 'game farm' feel rather than a bushveld experience.

          Everything was great; only have a very few minor complaints. AC in room did not work properly, but this was not a problem because it was cool enough at night. We were not impressed that the rhino horns had been removed to make them less attractive to poachers. Overall, we would recommend this place to others.

          Game Drive, Cat Walk, Deluxe Tent
          Once finally found (which took effort) we thought the location was fabulous - the property is generally very (African) up-market and most charming. The tented accom was lovely with a huge bed, open-sky shower and big front verandah with comfy furniture to lie back and watch the animals wander around. You park at reception & ferried around by golf cart vehicles and there's also a little rope-pull raft to get across the little lake. A resident tortoise visited us several and other animals (eland, nyala, zebra, rhino, warthog, monkeys) visible from our tent. Only criticism was the night noise level of the birds - so loud and piercing that I needed ear plugs. Went on a game drive the 1st morning & saw many animals including a male & female lion feeding (they're in a separate area & fed by staff - they don't hunt the other animals) The up-side of a super large zoo is that you can find animals fairly easily without having to hunt all day & find little, which sometimes can happen in the true wild. On the 2nd morning we did the 'cat walk' - an hour long walk with the lions - no leashes, just 3 handlers & a guide - professionally run & got many photos posed with the 2 females, one a white lion (very touristy I know!) Buffet breakfast was great, but was disappointed it wasn't included in our very expensive room rate (even water was charged for separately). The dinner was OK - soup and starters served at the table were excellent - but main course has to be queued for, which I didn't wish to do. The first night we had bought picnic items from the nearest town (not close) and had an in-room picnic and an early night - that's not a bad option. We certainly enjoyed the overall experience; there were many other options that we didn't explore - elephant rides, horse riding, fishing (catch and release), kayaking - maybe next time!
