“This place is a gem”

My wife and our 2 children spent amazing 4 days in Motswiri after 1 day in an other good lodge of Madikwe. We have really enjoyed our time there : staff is very attentionate, food is very good, game drives are very high level. We have seen in 4 days all possible animals thanks to our ranger Kuni. We highly recommend Motwiri : very good value for money!

“Fantastic first safari experience”

If you want a luxurious and relaxing place whilst enjoying safari, this is the place to go. Waterhole is literally a few metres away from the main lodge and 3 villas have direct views of it too, we saw a huge family of elephants who are regularly visiting at the mo, also buffalo, warthog, zebra… Without stepping out of the lodge… We had a wonderful time, staff were very helpful and approachable, guide/ranger was great, knew how to get the best out of the park whilst respecting the animals (saw the big 5 except leopard who eluded us, but close ups with lion and also saw black and white rhino) and made every game drive a special experience (we did three morning and two evening safaris). Staff made the effort to help celebrate a special birthday with cake, bubbly and an authentic African singsong by the staff.
We drove up from Jo’burg with Rhino Tours (excellent staff and comfy vehicle) straight off the plane from UK, and flew back to Jo’burg this morning with Federal airlines, all smooth including take off and landing and lovely crew.

Stayed September 2016, travelled as a couple
