Botlierskop’s Luxury Tented Suites are air-conditioned and built on private wooden decks offering breathtaking views of the distant river and imposing mountains. These suites are elegantly bedecked in a Colonial style with 4-poster beds draped with mosquito nets. The generous en-suite bathroom has a lavish oval bath and an open-air shower. The resident family of nyala are often about to welcome you.
Newly-renovated and air-conditioned, the Manor House Suites are housed within the original old farmstead, dating back to the mid 1800s. Within easy reach of the Main Lodge as well as the Tented Lodge, Manor House overlooks the expansive, game-studded plains of the exclusive Botlierskop Game Reserve.
Wedged between the majestic Outeniqua mountains and the expansive herb and vegetable gardens, the houses of The Village Lodge are uniquely quaint, delightfully different with each offering its own special flair, reminiscent if a yesteryear village, but thoroughly contemporary in every way. It’s the perfect address for a country escape – for families (kids all ages welcome) and couples alike.
