In operation for more than 30 years and an original, traditional game lodge, Motswari offers bush as far as the eye can see and simple luxuries that don't intrude on your experience. Nature is unaffected by man's need to shape his environment yet our family-owned reserve prides itself on our conservation values, exquisite cuisine, award-winning wines and luxurious accommodation. With 150 square kilometres of wide horizons and untamed wilderness, Motswari is an unforgettable experience.

The name Motswari means "to conserve and protect" in Tswana and the owners have held the name to be a promise to each of their future friends who arrive to share in the splendour of an African sunset at this traditional African safari lodge.The understated luxury of this traditional, vintage bush lodge promises an authentic African safari experience and luxury bush accommodation to all of its visitors from the world over. The 150 square kilometres that make up the reserve are part of the greater Kruger Park and guests will be treated to wildlife in their natural habitats as part of their unforgettable wildlife experience of Southern Africa.

Ideally situated and exclusive, Motswari Private Game Reserve and African bush lodge accommodation holds the best of everything for the traveller to the untamed majesty that is Africa.Motswari is exclusive in that we never have more than 30 guests present at any one time, providing a more serene environment for our visitor's African experience. With 15 luxury-appointed en-suite bungalows, each with air-conditioning, and all offering unrivalled bush views, guests enjoy a high level of comfort which complements our level of service excellence. The naturally-furnished interiors of each bungalow reflect the wonders of nature that exist just outside the windows. Getting close to the untouched wildlife that South Africa is famed for on an African Wildlife Safari, is what Motswari is really all about.

All of Africa's Big Five are abundant in the area, as are countless numbers of other naturally-occuring African Plains Game which traverse the open boundary between Motswari and the Kruger National Park. Our guides are residents of the area and have, in addition to the scientific knowledge that we encourage them to attain, an intimate knowledge of the location and wildlife that comes from a lifetime of co-existence with the surrounds. We encourage visitors to make the most of the time that they have in this setting by offering Game Drive Safaris, such as extended game drives (of three-and-a-half hours each) in open Land Rovers both at sunrise and during sunset to ensure that most, if not all, of the inhabitants of the bush are appreciated by our guests on their African Wildlife Safari, and provide them with an unforgettable game viewing experience. We also offer Guided Walking Safaris such as optional bush walks with one of our highly experienced and armed trail-guides, for those who wish to get the most from their African experience. Our knowledgeable staff members also give talks on the wildlife and bushveld topics and will gladly answer any related questions for our guests. We offer a daily total of up to nine hours of interaction and exploration within the veld itself.
