Rarely am I this impressed
Denver-the man
He made the tour

I loved the safari, both days, but even more I loved the views of SA and the info provided. This guy is a real asset to the company, extremely switched on!
Request this guy and get a great insight into an amazing country, as well as an excellent safari experience

Minor gripe-having to pay for some meals is kind of annoying, I would have preferred pay a little more at the start and not have to take my wallet out. But this is minor.

Very wonderful!

Wonderful experience! The tour guide Isaac has been fantastic, very kind and professional. Even the safaris were beautiful, with the possibility to see all Big Fives. Don't miss it!
Don’t tell anyone….this experience is surreal…

This review is a message to all that are looking for one of the most professional, most accommodating, most advising and trustworthy travel agencies in South Africa!

In fact, we have been victims of a scam prior and were suspicious to book and inquire through TripAdvisor.

Anyways…Tammy Lee from Hotspots2c and our guide Denver were the cherries on top of our weekend exploration! We wanted to highlight the great caring and professionalism that this agency has put into their processes. Tammy Lee accompanied us from proposing to settling the transactions and was extremely reliable. Denver is such a gem with so much knowledge and experience. A truly customer oriented and human centered company that not only cares for their only employees but also for their guests and ecosystem.

It has been a wonderful experience to interact with hotspots2c and to share this experience with everyone who is looking for a wonderful agency and partner in SA!

Btw…I am not getting paid or gratified for this review. My feedback is based on my personal experience with hotspots2c.
Amazing wildlife experience

Seeing so many different animals up close in their natural habitat was a once in a lifetime experience for me. We were so lucky to see lions, elephants, rhinos, zebras, giraffs, various kinds of antilope, mercats, hippos and some smaller animals. Our guide Uriel really made our days perfect. He went out of his way to keep everybody happy, told us the most interesting stories and was happy to share his extensive knowledge of the area. Loved every minute. Would like to come again!
Best Experience in Cape Town

The whole experience was pretty amazing! The car was at the hotel punctually. The guide, Isaac, was extremely kind and explained a lot about the culture and the places to us, we love him!! In the way we had the opportunity to stop at an incredible shop. The day was rainy, but we could still had the Elephant experience. We stayed at "Guest House", the room is huge and the hosts were very pleasant with us! The next day, we had the big safari and it was amazing!!!
My favorite South African tour!

This was my absolute favorite South African tour after both my trips to Cape Town! We stayed overnight in a yurt by a pond with hippos, so we woke up to the hippos grunting the next morning. We were able to see so many animals in their natural environment, but the giraffes were especially memorable.

Uriel is the BEST tour guide, and took us to two amazing safari's with some great stops along the way. I highly recommend this tour. It a lot of driving, but worth the wait.
Fantastic safari

Went out with Uriel on the two day safari! We ended up having the best experience. We saw so many animal! Uriel was so lovely and made the experience so nice.

Wow what an amazing experience. JP the guide was really great and full of info. The rangers in safari…their knowledge was endless. And what a fabulous experience to see so many animals, to get so close to lions in the wild was just out of this world. We saw a hippo, rhinos, lions, wilderbeasts, all kinds of antelopes, elephants, giraffes and loads of other animals. The only thing we didn’t get to see was the cheetahs but everything is wild so there’s no guarantees and we were so lucky. Highly recommend this trip if you want a reasonably short one, wish we had done the longer tour though now. 5* !!
Great safari experience
Nicolas B, 12-02-2023
We had a really good time! Botlierskop Safari is one of the greatest safari experience in the region. We could see almost all the big five (except leopards). We were lucky having such a nice group! Very good ambiance!

However, the only small damper was the accommodation: don’t expect to sleep in the reserve with a view on the park. Also there are 3 quality of room with 3 different prices: turned out they are almost all the same. I paid for the “luxury” one and ended up having the worst room next to a busy street while other people who paid less had better rooms.

But anyways, it was globally a fantastic weekend, I would still recommend it 100%
It's OK

Type of Animals which were seen are been well looked after them. So Its is not a wild atmosphere as I was expecting.
But it's still good adventure and it's well organized, tour guides with very knowledge about their Animals.... thanks
