On the border of the Northern cape and the Free State and separated by the majestic Van der Kloof dam within South Africa the Otterskloof Private Game Reserve lies in waiting for you to be surprised. This private game reserve offers high standards in luxury accommodation, close wildlife encounters, beautiful vistas, and personal service. The Otterskloof history consists of Game management and rare game breeding for our future generations; a history richly woven into the atmosphere of each of its two uniquely individual safari lodges.

The reserve is home to the many animals including the rare Roan, Sable, Buffalo, Giraffeand hundreds of other species of animals, birds and plants indigenous to the area. Rangers and trackers ensure that your safari experience ranks amongst the best in central South Africa. You can look forward to fantastic experiences with Africa`s wildlife on every game drive.
