Overview

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.    Dining at Motswari Private Game Reserve is a unique African experience, with a hint of fine dining flair.
