Africa's Big Five is Motswari Private Game Reserve. One of
South Africa's jewels nestled within the Timbavati Nature
Reserve, this family-owned and operated four-star luxury
safari lodge prides itself on its warm atmosphere and
luxurious African safari lodge accommodation.
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
splendor of an African sunset at this traditional African
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 kilometers 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
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.
There are no spas or gyms here at Motswari. Instead we
provide the serenity and relaxation that comes from
exploring the intricacies of the living ecosystem that will
surround you and the exercise that comes from walking the
untamed trails that abound in the pristine environment you
will find yourself in.
We also house a fully-equipped conference facility for
executives making use of the lodge for team-building,
product launches and corporate getaways. By placing our
air-conditioned facilities at your disposal we ensure
memorable conclusions for any company retreat. There is also
an internet hotspot available for those wishing to conduct
business during their time with us. Our conference room can
be configured according to your specific needs by prior
arrangement with your hosts.
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-occurring 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
Supporting the Big Five are several other species of
wildlife, including cheetah and wild dogs and naturally
occurring herbivores from the antelope and gazelle family.
There are a variety of nocturnal animals which make our
sunset drives completely different from their daytime
equivalent which include, but are not limited to, hyena,
honey-badger, civet, the bush-baby and owls. The avian
population is unrivalled for the avid birdwatcher, with well
over 350 different species to be spotted year-round. Taken
all together this is an unmatched chance to view the
splendor of all manner of creatures unique to the continent.
