Motswari Game Lodge Location Map

Deep within the 60,000 hectare Timbavati Game Reserve lies Motswari Private Game Reserve. The open boundary with the Kruger National Park ensures that there is a constant flow of game through the reserve, offering plenty of excitement during safari activities. Qualified rangers accompanied by skilled Shangaan trackers will do their utmost to ensure that guests get the best possible sighting, and the area is renowned for its frequent sightings of the famed Big 5. Game drives are conducted in the early morning and late afternoon, when the animals are most active and the scenery at its most spectacular. Optional excursions such as guided bush walks and bush banqueting are also available.

The main lodge facilities include a traditional open-air boma, a spacious lounge and bar overlooking a beautiful dam, an art gallery exhibiting original wildlife art, and a refreshing swimming pool.

Guests can also enjoy a sleep out at the Giraffe's Nest hide, or an overnight bush walk and camping sleep out experience (at an additional cost).

All 15 luxury en-suite rooms have air-conditioning and overhead fans, and offer magnificent bush and river views. The naturally-furnished interiors of each bungalow reflect the wonders of nature that exist just outside the windows.

Motswari also prides itself on its sumptuous, home-style cuisine and friendly attentive service, where guests are assured of a truly unique experience.The staff are passionate about their way of life and guests will be made to feel a part of this, be it around the campfire or sipping sundowners at a waterhole.
