Located along South Africa's stunning Garden Route region, conveniently positioned halfway between Mossel Bay and George in the Western Cape province, Botlierskop Private Game Reserve is a 4,200-hectare private piece of land that offers breathtaking views of the glistening Indian Ocean and wonderful safari activities. What's more, it's a mere 4.5-hour drive from Cape Town.

From rare black impala to zebra, giraffe, wildebeest, and hippopotamus, the reserve is teeming with fascinating wildlife encounters. The property also features expansive herb and vegetable gardens arranged in a wagon-wheel pattern, centered around the focal dams known as Watermollen (Watermill) and Perdedam (Horse Dam), all watered by a beautiful canal that weaves through the accommodations providing a sense of tranquility.
