Excellent stay - staff are so welcoming and accommodating. The accommodation itself is wonderful. The game drives were fantastic with some amazing sightings. We highly recommend Motswiri and will definately be returning.

If you are looking for a good option in Madikwe you can't go wrong with Motwsiri ... Great rooms, fantastic wildlife and staff happy to please ( Geraldine is one of the best lodge managers we've come across ... Nothing was too much trouble for her ! ) Coenie was a great ranger. Go - you won't be disappointed !

I really enjoyed staying over at Motswiri for one night. Lunch, supper and breakfast was absolutely awesome! And the fact that the staff was so friendly and welcoming at all times! They really went out of their way to make my first 5 star experience exceptional and I felt like a queen! I am really impressed with them and my... More

In our experience this was one of the most enjoyable safari lodge stays we have had. The lodge itself has fantastic ambience and charm and typical of what a smaller lodge should be. Most of all the staff every one of them warm, attentive very helpful and of course the food was outstanding with a personal touch. Great value for... More

Our stay at Motswiri was an all-around five star safari experience in South Africa! From the moment we were greeted by Geraldine's big smile I knew we were going to have a stay! I've stayed in several Safari Lodges and I've never met a more kind, friendly, warm, and welcoming manger than Geraldine! She is there to accommodate to your... More

Just returned after an amazing stay! From the service, to the food, to the game drives, nothing was too much trouble or too much effort... The team there went out of their way to make sure that you "wanted" for nothing!

When you drive into Motswiri, you are not sure what you are in for! However you are immediately greeted by friendly staff bearing drinks and hot towels. You walk into the foyer and feel immediately at home. Motswiri is an intimate lodge which caters for a small number of guests so each one of us felt special. You can choose... More

Our stay at Motswiri Lodge over the easter weekend was spectacular. We got engaged there. The staff when out of their way to make everything as romantic as they could. The staff is amazing as well as the food. The game drives were amazing and we got to see everything there was to see. I would highly recommend this lodge.

The game reserve was nice but how disappointing stay in the self catering luxurious villa of Motswiri. The villa is supposed to offer to 6 guests an very exclusive stay with their own safari car. We just learned arriving @ the lodge that we will not have the car whereas we have booked our stay 5 months ahead and paid... More

This is the 4th time I have stayed at this lodge. The staff and rangers never fail to delight. The food is fantastic and the staff very friendly. Another 2 great game drives, the highlight being wild dog puppies.
