The holiday season brings with it an exciting new development at Botlierskop. Tucked away in a remote enclave of the fynbos-rich, 3500 hectare Botlierskop Private Game Reserve, lies the next step in Botlierskop’s evolution-The Self-Catering Bush Villas. Four breath-taking villas have been lovingly and meticulously crafted with the aim of providing guests with the ultimate luxury self-catering safari accommodation; the perfect complement to Botlierskop’s luxury safari lodge accommodation offering.
The brand-new Bush Villas, nestled in the bush overlooking a waterhole, exhibit true South African flare with their eclectic, luxurious furnishings in keeping with their unique location. Each villa sleeps six (four adults and two children) inviting numerous possibilities for families and friends, corporate getaways, team-building, special occasions as well as for privacy-seeking couples and honeymooners alike.
Offering unsurpassed levels of privacy, (the villas are located 27km away from the Main Lodge at Botlierskop!), the game reserve is your backyard and the villa your home away from home.
The serviced villas are packed with all the luxury amenities one could ask for including en-suite bathrooms complete with bathrobes and slippers, a fully-equipped kitchen including a dish washer, dining area to seat six, air-conditioned lounge with a TV, indoor and outdoor fireplaces, and a private plunge pool in the superior villas. Sliding glass doors open up to an expansive, furnished wooden deck offering spectacular views of the waterhole and the surrounding game reserve.
Let nature govern your days here. Rise with the sun… or not. Eat whenever and whatever you choose. If you don’t feel like cooking, have lunch at the beautiful Bishops Safari Lodge located at Botlierskop or dine at one of the numerous restaurants within a half hour drive in the surrounding areas of Great Brak River and Mosselbay.
For those looking for a relaxing escape, while away the hours on your own private deck overlooking the waterhole and watch the ebb and flow of wildlife accompanied by the soundtrack of birds. After a barbeque on the deck perhaps, spend your evenings gathered around the large fire-pit listening to the nocturnal sounds of the bush.
For adventure-seekers, the playground of the Garden Route is at your doorstep as well as all the activities on offer at Botlierskop. Partake in a guided game drive or horseback safari through the safari park or visit Botlierskop’s beautiful bush spa to aid in your relaxation and well-being. Hourly shuttles (by arrangement) are available to ferry you to and from Botlierskop Main Lodge-a scenic 25-minute drive through the game reserve. Other nearby activities include a walk with lions at Zorgfontein, shark cage diving in Mossel Bay and many more.
To add to the ultimate private safari experience, a private game ranger and vehicle is available as an optional extra to take you and your guests on a private, guided game drive through the game reserve up to twice daily.
