We had a magical stay in a bushvilla right on the waters edge. Very well equipped villa, but this place is all about the views. We saw Rhino, Buffalo and various antelope visiting the water hole early evening while having a braai. Amazing experience. We will be back.

We stayed for three nights with two children aged 7 and 9. In that time we did four game drives and one horseback safari. Now, this isn't Kruger, but don't let that put you off. Botlierskop is still plenty large enough for your guides to have to hunt around to find the animals to see, but small enough you shouldn't...

All the staff were very friendly and the facilities were amazing. Our guide Silas was very knowledgable. This place is definitely worth a visit. I'd recommend a minimum of 2 night stay to be able to use all the facilities.
