One of the highlights of the trip is a game drive through the rugged terrain of Africa in an open 4-wheel drive vehicle. We will see a variety of animals with educational discussions by a wildlife ranger on the ecology and biology of the animals co-existing in this private reserve, Botlierskop. Situated between the magnificent Outeniqua Mountains and unspoiled beaches of the Indian ocean, in the heart of the Garden Route, lies the 4000 ha Botlierskop Private Game Reserve in the Western Cape ensuring its visitors of a unique South African Safari experience. Our Safari Park is only a 4.5-hour scenic drive from Cape Town, the Mother City of South Africa, between Mossel Bay and George. This malaria free, family owned and privately operated garden route game lodge is home to an abundance of animals including 4 of the Big 5, lions, elephants, buffalo’s, giraffes, rhino’s, hippos, rare black impalas and more as well as a unique bird life. We will be very close to the game with excellent photo opportunities and leisurely stops to observe animal behavior in a natural setting. No feeding or touching the animals is allowed.
