The endless greenery, rocky outcrops amid rolling hills and wide open veld spaces of the Garden Route provide an incredible location for visitors to enjoy a malaria-free safari experience at Botlierskop Private Game Reserve. This is the perfect stopover where guests can experience a safari and four of the Big 5 between Cape Town and the popular seaside escapes of Knysna and Plettenberg Bay.
4.5hrs from Cape Town and an hour from Knysna, Botlierskop is nestled on 3,500 hectares of private land in the impressive Outeniqua Mountains. The landscape can be viewed from the seat of a game ranger vehicle or from the back of a horse and even elephant. Visitors can learn more about the lay of the land with guided bush trail walks, get up-close and personal with elephants during their feeding time or accompany young lions on an hour-long stroll through their natural habitat.
Guests have their choice of 17 Luxury Tented Suites and 7 Manor House Rooms that can cater for couples, friends and family. Self-Catering Villas situated on a neighbouring farm, for those wanting privacy, are also available and overlook a watering hole, allowing guests to observe their surroundings from the comfort of their deck with a sundowner in hand.
