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.
Within Motswari Private Game Reserve, you’ll be in the perfect place to spot the superstars of African wildlife in their natural habitat, and the “Big 5” – lion, leopard, elephant, rhino, and buffalo – are in abundance. Game drives and walking safaris will put you safely in touch with all the wonders of the veld. You’ll have a great choice of treks and drives, accompanied by expert guides and trackers, as well as pre-safari talks and even camp-outs in the Reserve. There’s a pool and WiFi hotspot at the lodge, and delicious meals are served here, around the ‘boma’ fire, or out in the bush. There are just 15 luxuriously furnished bungalows at Motswari, each one with air conditioning but none with unnecessary high-tech trappings like TV. You’ll also be able to spend a night in a comfortable tented camp or even at Giraffe’s Nest, a spectacular water’s-edge tree house. Also contained within the reserve is Motswari Geiger’s Camp, which is perched on a ridge with panoramic views of Big Five terrain, this luxury safari camp fuses tasteful elegance with historic, rustic charm.
Motswari Private Game Reserve 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.
We encourage visitors to make the most of the time that they have in this setting by offering extended game drives of three-and-a-half hours each in open Land Rovers at sunrise and sunset to ensure an unforgettable game viewing experience. We also offer guided walking safaris 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 give talks on 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.
