The Manor House
The newly renovated, air-conditioned Manor House Suites on the reserve are located in the original old farm house, dating back to the mid 1800s, with views of the plains of Botlierskop and is located close to the Botlierskop Tented Lodge. At the Manor House we do not accept children under the age of 6.
Self-Catering Bush Villas
These eight luxurious, family-friendly Self-Catering Bush Villas make getting away from it all an occasion. The fully equipped kitchen, dining room and lounge with TV and fireplace open onto an expansive outdoor entertainment area with barbeque facilities and splash pool overlooking the tranquil dam – where hippos wallow, birds swoop and an array of wildlife come down to drink.
Luxury Tented Suites
With the Moordkuil River meandering lazily past them, each of the 21 spacious and elegant Botlierskop Luxury Tented Suites are spaced apart for privacy and rests gently on its wooden deck, blending seamlessly into their leafy, riverine and mountainous surrounds, offering splendid views out over the river and the mountains beyond.
Shaded by a canopy of ancient African trees, these tents are Colonial only in style. Every modern convenience and thoughtful touch will make you feel welcome and pampered.
Raised wooden walkways connect the suites to each other and the Main Lodge with its spacious lounge areas and open-plan Fireplace Restaurant that leads out on to the spacious wooden deck with wrap-around views of the valleys below. Within walking distance of the Main Lodge lies the original and historic Manor House. Small and intimate, the Manor has seven en-suite rooms with showers only. It has its own swimming pool and guests also make use of the Main Lodge facilities and restaurant. Children aged 6 and over are welcome at both the Luxury Tented Camp and The Manor House. Welcome to the elegance of a gracious bygone era, with every comfort in store.
The Villa Lodge
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 with kids of all ages, and couples alike.
