About Motswari Safari Lodge

Motswari Safari Lodge in the Timbavati Private Game reserve stretches over 150 square kilometres, and has been in the hands of the Geiger family for over 40 years. Motswari Safari Lodge (meaning to conserve and protect in the Tswana language) lies in an incomparable position where the landscape is teeming with wildlife of all kinds (not just the big 5), partly due to the open fence boundary system with the Kruger National Park. On the other side of the reserve is the Blyde River Canyon, another unique place of beauty which lends its water source as a focus and attraction for the wildlife of the region.

Accommodation at Motswari Safari Lodge

Once part of a traditional farm, Motswari Safari Lodge has all the rustic charm and sophisticated presence that offers visitors an authentic safari experience. Tranquility, intimacy, and a sense of home in the bush is the overall sentiment that most guests feel privy to whilst staying at Motswari Safari Lodge. The décor and furniture all lends itself to a bygone era as relics of the past can be spotted around the rooms.

Game viewing at Motswari Safari Lodge

The game viewing at Motswari Safari Lodge is one word: exceptional. Its almost like being in the jungle book such that there is so much wildlife activity on this reserve. One of the rangers is even nicknamed leopard man on account of his natural abilities to track the elusive leopard. Whether out on one of the twice daily game drives, or sitting back at the lodge, you won’t be disappointed, on the contrary, your eyes will be spellbound by the nature around you.
