About Motswiri Private Safari Lodge

Motswiri Private Safari Lodge, situated in the western side of the 75 000 hectare, Big Five, malaria-free Madikwe Game Reserve in the North West Province, forms an integral part of The Madikwe Collection’s exclusive portfolio of lodges.

As its name suggests, Motswiri Private Safari Lodge is an exclusive lodge offering guests a personal bush experience, which is impossible to replicate in larger concerns. The lodge offer some of the best views in Madikwe as well as the tranquil feel given by the mature trees (mostly Leadwoods) under which the lodge’s main building and five luxury bush villas nestle.

Motswiri has luxurious accommodation, with each bush villa offering stunning views from private decks and multiple-slider bedrooms and bathrooms. Add double-sided fire places, air-conditioning/ceiling fans, stunning bathrooms and an outdoor shower and you have a bush experience second to none. Then our Family Villa offer three rooms all with en-suite bathrooms. The Family villa boasts a private lounge area leading out onto a private deck and pool.

At the main area of the lodge enjoy the rim-flow pool overlooking the waterhole, have a cocktail under the shade of the Motswiri trees (Leadwood in Tswana) on the main deck or just while away the day in the outside lounge and bar area. Fine cuisine is served in the dining room, under the Leadwood or around a roaring fire in the boma.

Motswiri offers the option of individual bookings or exclusive use of the lodge for groups. The lodge is ideal for corporate, family / friend groups of up to ten people who do not wish to share the facilities with other guests. Motswiri is a mere three and a half hours’ drive from Johannesburg or for utter indulgence, guests can opt for a fly-in safari to the reserves all weather airstrip.

Scheduled daily charters are available via the Federal Air Madikwe Charter Joint Venture Partnership. Lodge tariffs include luxury accommodation, two fabulous game drives per day and all meals.

Safari: Twice daily game drives are conducted by our rangers whose superb bush knowledge is imparted in the manner best suited to the bush knowledge of the guests on the specially designed land cruiser game viewing vehicle.

Spa: Aromatherapy massages available & must be pre-booked Charged at the lodge (option to prepay before arrival)

              Great atmosphere, good service and outstanding safari. All in a small and personal setting. Highly recommended for anyone.

              We booked for the one night and were disappointed that we didn't book for two nights. Great stay. Amenities are great (loved the outdoor shower!). Staff and service excellent. My only advice to prospective guests is stay a minimum of two nights.
