After reading reviews on various game reserves we opted for Botlierskop as it offered activities like walking with lions which we felt would be an unforgettable experience. And it was exactly that. Unforgettable, magical and out of this world. We stayed here for two nights in a luxury tent by the river, and the place was just brilliant. If you love nature, wildlife and romance, you will love this place. The night in the tent was absolutely wonderful as we were in darkness listening to all the lovely sounds around us. The tent had an outdoor shower, and was stocked with tea, coffee, and also some biscuits. We could only get to our tent by moving across the river in a wooden raft that we had to steer which was tremendous fun. The safaris itself was good and you get to see the big 5 (except the leopard). The infinity pool was amazing as you feel you are at the edge of a mountain and have far reaching views of the stunning landscape and surroundings in all its glory. Dinner was surprisingly good as you get to try all the exotic meats. Overall a great place to stay and relax!
The walk with the lions is a must, as an activity. You will not regret it!
