From a 19th-century farmhouse on a 4,200-hectare game reserve, this refined lodge beside the Moordkuil River has evolved to offer luxurious, contemporary spaces with the couple and family in mind.

Come and share the breathtaking beauty this malaria free reserve has to offer on the scenic Garden Route.

Enjoy a uniquely South African Safari Experience. Family owned, Botlierskop is home to free roaming wildlife including lion, elephant, buffalo, rhino, cheetah, zebra, giraffe, hippo and more. Unusually there are golden as well as the more common wildebeest and black impala.


To fully experience what Botlierkop offers, choose from the luxurious accommodation options below. Game drives and safari walks with knowledgeable rangers, horse riding safaris, excellent cuizine and a superb spa to pamper… are amongst your options, or simply lounge by the pool while you read with the sounds of the African bush as your backdrop.

If time is a problem, enjoy a day visit and Botlierskop’s game drives, pool with a viewing deck, delicious lunch and spa treatments. Try our Sunset Game Drive, with drinks and snacks, while the game starts to stir.
