Walk with lions on safari in the Garden Route

Botlierskop Private Game Reserve spoils travellers for choice with their luxurious range of accommodation on offer in the Western Cape. Their luxury-tented suites are set up under a canopy of trees, their Manor House dates back to the mid-1800s boasting its own pool, and their self-catering Bush Villas all ideally overlook a waterhole frequented by wildlife. The tough part is taking your pick!

The game reserve is on the famous Garden Route between Mossel Bay and George roughly 4.5 hours from Cape Town. This 4,000ha reserve is in a malaria-free area but doesn’t compromise on exciting wildlife encounters including four of the Big 5 and the area’s prolific birdlife population. Activities in the reserve include guided game drives, horseback safaris as well as unique horseback outrides for more experienced riders.

The Bush Villas are 27km away from the Main Lodge at Botlierskop Private Game Reserve while the Manor House is within walking distance to the Main Lodge. The Tented Lodge is near the Moordkuil River and has Suites with wooden walkways connecting each tent to the Main Lodge.
