We visited Bartholomeus Klip for a couple of nights in April and it has to be one of the best places I have ever stayed! We particularly liked all the small touches such as the fresh herbs left on the pillows, the small decanters of sherry/port left on the dressing table and the little silver water jugs placed around the tables on the veranda.
We went out on the morning & evening game drives and finished up one magical evening parked up on the plains, a trestle table out drinking
sparking wine, surrounded by wildebeest/springbok/zebra and watching the sun set over the mountains that lie at the back of the property.
The food is superb, rooms cosy and staff friendly & attentive. This a place to really relax, whether you take a boat out on the lake, walk about the reserve or simply sit back in the lush gardens. We especially liked the fact that you have to drive down a dirt track for 8-9 kms before you reach the property really makes it feel like you are getting away from everything!
