Motswari Game Lodge is the closest lodge located to the boundary of the Kruger National Park within the Timbavati Game Reserve. Family run and operated, this classic African lodge plays host to Africa's "Big 5" on a daily basis.

This Timbavati Luxury Lodge offers up understated luxury in a serene and exclusive environment, surrounded by teeming and curious wildlife.

The Timbavati Game Reserve in which Motswari is located, is famed for its birdlife (over 360 species), wildlife (over 40 species of mammal) including white lions and the famed "Big 5".

Rooms & Suites:

15 luxurious bungalows, each with en-suite facilities and air-conditioning offer unrivalled views over the surrounding river and bushveld.

The rooms at game lodge are large in size and are furnished with extremely comfortable beds, crisp white linen and classic wrap-around mosquito netting.

Food & Wine:

Breakfasts and lunches are enjoyed either out in the bushveld at a scenic location or back at the main lodge (activity and weather dependent).

Delicious and hearty dinners are served up under the African stars deep in the bush or inside the Boma back at the lodge. In both cases, you will not be disappointed.


The place to unwind and relax in between game activities is an infinity pool on the banks of the river from which you can regularly observe thirsty elephants drinking. A definite highlight of the lodge.

A small art gallery and curio shop is available stocked with the works of local artists. There is also 24-hour internet connectivity.


Morning, afternoon and evening game drive safaris with professional guides and trackers in open 4x4 custom safari vehicles provide an unforgettable game viewing experience.

Should you feel like stretching those legs in the mornings, Motswari Lodge offers guided walking safaris with highly experienced and armed trail-guides. There is nothing quite like getting up close to Africa's wildlife when on foot, we highly recommend this activity to all our clients.
