Awful experience - poor drives, food and roomPosted Sep 8, 2015
This place is a scam. They go out on fewer than 20% of the committed game drives and spend their whole time trying to sell spa treatments to you. It's not a safari experience it's a tacky sales engine. The food was inedible and the staff incredibly rude. Be careful not to get stung and try elsewhere. In addition we overheard someone saying that the place is for sale and that they have a few weeks to screw as much money out of their visitors as possible. Together with the flooding and fire risk we couldn't recommend this place to our worst enemy. STAY CLEAR!

Staying with the wildlifePosted Aug 15, 2015
Wonderful family experience, calm, relaxing and a quality destination. Walking with lions, was memorable! The guides were attentive and informative, taking time to explain the ecology and master plan for repopulating the area with wildlife. These lions are captive, not wild, they seem better off and well cared for. A must do, but have your eyes wide open to the circumstances to why your there!

Great stayPosted Jul 5, 2015 on Hotels
Very good - it was a cold night, but the pool was heated and the fireplaces were lovely. The food was very good for the price. We had to leave very early the next morning, and they made it very easy for us! Definitely recommend!

Somewhat ersatz, but wonderfulPosted Jun 15, 2015
Cons: Nothing really
Location: Oysters in Knysna, beach activities (in summer), and Walk with the Lions at Zorgfontein (affiliated).
Unexpectedly luxurious, interesting, and convenient, this hotel and private game park has many ancillary activities to make it even more pleasurable. While very close to Knysna, the night is quiet and calm, while the game drives (reminiscent of Safari West in the U.S.) are interesting and exciting if you have not yet done the full-on Safari experience. Food and drink are above average, though not in the 5-star range. Rooms are very comfortable and staff is friendly. It was perfect for us on our way down the Garden Route.

remarkablePosted Apr 20, 2015
Pros: absolutely everything.
Cons: nothing g comes to mind
Location: we travelled on to Knysna after departing Botlierskop
from the moment we arrived mid afternoon we experienced a shear pleasurable stay. All staff were well trained and every expectation and request was carried out efficiently and completely. BEDS WERE SUPER COMFY AND PILLOWS AS SOFT AS CLOUDS. The lion walk was exceptional. we were the only participants it being off season and still all care and safety was paramount having 9 handlers and 1 main guide to accompany us and the 2 female lions for 45 mins of once in a lifetime experience. sitting on the verandah late afternoon sipping a complimentary sherry while the wilderbeast and zebras grazed a stones throw away was piece and tranquillity to the utmost. finishing up with a hot bamboo massage from Sylvia in the spa was delightfull. thankyou Botlierskop staff for a wonderful stay
