Motswari Private Game Reserve is a small-scale and family-run luxury resort in the remote and beautiful Timbavati Nature Reserve, a 6-hour drive from Johannesburg and 50 minutes from Hoedspruit airport. There’s also a private airstrip on site for a VIP-style arrival.
An African dream beckons – one that is defined by extraordinary scenery, an authentic atmosphere and warm hospitality. Guests arrive as visitors and leave as friends. This is Motswari Private Game Reserve, a family-owned and operated luxury safari lodge. Here, majestic creatures, including the Big Five, offer incredible viewing opportunities as they bask in their natural habitat. Motswari means “to conserve and protect” in Tswana and that is what the reserve aims to do.
Motswari Private Game Reserve, located within the Timbavati and Umbabat Private Nature Reserve, stretches out over 18,000 hectares. It has been in existence for over four decades and its friendly staff members are intrinsic to its success. Great emphasis is placed on personal attention, ensuring that each guest instantly feels at home in this stunning setting. Artworks by owner, Marion Geiger-Orengo, additionally bring the lodge to life and add to its visual appeal.
The Main Camp consists of a total of fifteen en-suite bungalows interspersed in nature. This reserve remains exclusive as it never hosts more than thirty guests at any given point in time. We have decorated each unit in a traditional manner that alludes to its surroundings while maintaining a luxurious feel. Rangers accompany guests between buildings, offering peace of mind and a wealth of insight into the surroundings.
You can arrange a special guided safari walk on request after the morning game drive and breakfast to discover the finest details of nature on the reserve. This experience is led by a professional guide and provides guests with the opportunity to view small fauna and flora from a unique perspective.

This discussion takes place over a lovely high tea, which includes a range of eats.
