Tripadvisors tilnærming til anmeldelser
Hver Tripadvisor-anmeldelse går gjennom et automatisert sporingssystem før den legges ut. Dette systemet samler inn informasjon som svarer på følgende spørsmål: Hvordan, hva, hvor og når. Hvis systemet oppdager noe som muligens strider imot retningslinjene våre for fellesskapet, blir anmeldelsen ikke publisert.
Når systemet oppdager et problem, kan en anmeldelse automatisk avvises, sendes til anmelderen for bekreftelse eller gjennomgås manuelt av teamet vårt av innholdsspesialister. Disse spesialistene jobber døgnet rundt for å opprettholde kvaliteten av anmeldelsene på nettstedet vårt.
Teamet vårt sjekker hver anmeldelse som er lagt ut på nettstedet og bestrides av fellesskapet vårt for ikke å møte retningslinjene våre for fellesskapet.

A very nice afternoon in a well maintained private game reserve. Healthy looking animals in a pretty landscape just a few minutes drive from the N2 exit Klein Brakrivier. Our guide, Chris, did an excellent job answering all questions and more in a humorous way. The restaurant looks good and the lodges look phenomenal with a great view of various animals at a stretch of water. And all very convenient and within a few hours.

Visited this Private Game Reserve when our Cruise Ship stopped at Mossel Bay, about 35 minutes drive away. My wife & myself had planned to visit a much larger Park earlier in our cruise but had to cancel due to her illness. Glad we did as we heard mixed reports from passengers who went, whereas we really enjoyed this trip even though this park is much smaller. Arrived just after 9am to a welcome drink and snack before boarding our vehicle for the drive itself. The vehicle was larger than expected, built to carry about about 14/16 passengers, but with only10 of us on board plenty of room to move about and take photos. The park itself is not over-large compared to many others we've read about, doesn't have proper laid out roads, and is quite undulating, so the 2.5 hour trip was quite bumpy at times. Nevertheless under the care of our guide,Nelson, we saw most of what we wanted to see, including 4 of the BIG 5( Botlierskop has no Leopards), plus Zebras, Giraffes,Hippo,different types of Antelope,Wildebeest,etc. We also saw many of the attractive Lodges which are available for overnight stays. The main building/Reception block also housed a large restaurant/bar & shops, which gave the impression of providing an enjoyable stay for those able to do so. Nevertheless we enjoyed our time at Botlierskop, everyone made us feel welcome, and gave us a feel of what a full Safari holiday would offer.

Wat een fantastische game reserve! Wij hebben enorm genoten. Het park heeft 4 van de big Vijf dieren en wij hebben ze alle vier gezien. Leeuw, Olifant, Buffel en Neushoorn. De giraf, Zebra en cheeta’s waren ook geweldig! Wat een fantastisch park! Het personeel is super vriendelijk. Brizano was enorm vriendelijk en vrolijk en wist alle Dieren in het park te vinden. In de bediening verdient Anita een grote pluim voor haar gastvrijheid en hoe speciaal je je voelt als gast.De accommodatie was goed! Wij sliepen in de tenten. Alles was aanwezig met een super uitzicht op de dieren. Als je een game reserve wilt doen dan is dit een echte aanrader.

Sowohl die Hotelanlage wie auch das Restaurant und die Safaritouren: alles ist top professionell, herzlich und mit viel Engagement organisiert. Wir durften während 3 Übernachtungen die herzliche Gastfreundschaft von „the Village“ erleben, excellent Essen und bei 2 Nachmittagssafaritouren, die unglaublich schöne Landschaft mit vielen Tiersichtungen erleben. Unser Guide Richard hat uns viel über die Flora & Fauna sowie die Herausforderungen eines Game Reserve beigebracht. Danke vielmals- wir werden definitiv wieder kommen und können die Location von ganzem Herzen empfehlen.

Amazing Safari ride with an extremely knowledgeable and engaging Guide.
Lucky enough to see all animals in the reserve other than the Cheetah and Hippo. Very interesting trying to find the animals and using their dung or footprints to try and track where they were on the reserve from the vehicle

Such a fun experience. We saw so many animals, and got so lucky to see the lions feeding on a wildebeest. Our guide Simba was so good! He was not only really informative, telling us facts which I had never heard of and that were very interesting, he was also very funny, making the entire experience so enjoyable. 10/10!!

Het was een fantastische Afrika ervaring. Een mooie locatie met super faciliteiten. Wij zijn 2 nachten gebleven en hebben 4 gamedrives gedaan. Onze ranger Daniel kon erg veel vertellen over de dieren, gewoontes, het park en de historie. Wij hebben mooi dieren gezien en onze dochter werd uiteindelijk "Cat-girl" gedoopt, omdat zij de Leeuwen en Cheeta vaak als eerste spotte. Het waren prachtige ritten door het park en de koffiebreaks tijdens de drives maakten het plaatje compleet.
Het restaurant en de kamers (honour rooms) waren van hoge kwaliteit.
Botlierkop is zeker 5 sterren en Daniel heft er voor ons eigenlijk 6 verdiend.

Wonderful game reserve easily accessible with very nice staff. All of the rangers are probably terrific but we were very, very happy to have Gerrit, aka Red Beard, as our ranger for 4 drives. He is passionate about his job and Botlierskop, very knowledgeable, extremely nice, and funny.

If you're lucky to be at Botlierskop on a Friday evening, some of the staff and rangers shed their uniforms in favor of their more colorful clothing and organize a drum-along for the guests with some basic instruction how to play typical African drums which you hold between your knees. They then perform drum pieces with a bit of dancing. Great fun!

The view from the Tented cabins is magical particularly from Tents 5 and 7 which are in an elevated overlooking location. But, the lower Tents (numbers higher than 7) offer a good chance to see up close some of the animals grazing in the late afternoon and possibly morning (worry not, there is a fence so no unexpected 4-legged visitors). No idea if the rooms in what is called the Manor House enjoy such views and proximity to animals. And, no idea about the self-catering villas.

The Tented cabins are luxurious and offer a second outside (privacy guaranteed) shower as well as a very large double bed (possibly convertible to two singles; I did not check) equipped with a full mosquito net à la old black-and-white movies of African bedrooms.

Bedding: the standard seems to be one bed sheet and tucked in blanket with an additional duvet over the entire width of the luxurious King-sized (if not bigger) bed. The additional duvet is quite heavy so is useless in anything but during cold weather. For continental Europeans and Scandinavians (I estimate 90% of the guests) used to individual duvets, the sheet and blanket are a major pain because they disallow different sleep patterns and bothering the other person. But, housekeeping can provide individual duvets if asked. Idem for the pillows for which the standard is foam but housekeeping will replace with feather if asked. Next time we go, we'll ask for the duvets and feather pillows in advance.

Be wary of small monkeys that roam the property and will enter your cabin and steal things if you leave open the balcony doors, windows, or door to the outside shower. This is a shame because that means you are forced to use the air-conditioning if you're in the cabin during the day or at night rather than leaving all open on cool days and evenings. Or, you could keep the balcony doors and windows just ajar in the hope the monkeys cannot get them open wider but I believe the hope will be greater than the result and the air flow too restricted. I'll be recommending to the management that they place grills or strong mosquito nets over the windows at least so one can enjoy a non-airconditioned time.

Load Shedding: Botlierskop has an array of power-generating equipment which means that they are not subject to the dreaded country-wide “Load Shedding” power cuts (electricity only, not gas) that interfere regularly in everyone else's day. Apparently, Western Cape province has a government with a more advanced plan than in the other provinces to upgrade their power-generating to eliminate load shedding but there's no information yet when that will happen.

Mandela war ein Super Ranger. Trotz des lausiger Wetters brachte er uns mit seinem Wissen und seinem sonnigen Lachen die Tierwelt nahe. Wir ziehen unseren Hut vor so viel Einsatz. Wir danken Mandela, dass dieser Nachmittag unvergesslich bleibt.
