We have just returned from 3 nights at Marakele Park. The park itself was so-so at best (ok animal sightings, awful map and directions), but our accommodation was terrible. Motswere 'cottage' has just recently been opened and is being offered as an alternative to Tlopi Tented Capm. DO NOT TAKE THAT OPTION. The 'cottage' is a re-purposed ranger's house, with cheapest-of-cheap updates, zero ambience or appeal, and you're fenced in behind a 3m high electric fence. And don't believe the '10 minutes from the gate'. It's 27km from the main gate to Motswere, taking us over an hour to drive each way. The only amusing factor is all of this was spotting all the photoshopped aspects of the 'quaint cottage' photo shown in the SANParks News, compared with reality. Just one, big, plain rip-off!
