Motswari is a great option for this part of Africa and it is reasonable in price compared to the lodges in Sabi Sand Reserve. Additionally, the game viewing is usually just as good in Timbavati.
ACCESS & LOCATION:
The lodge is located in Timbavati Private Nature Reserve.
ACCOMMODATION & FACILITIES:
All 15 luxury bungalows are spacious, with air conditioning and great views of the bush. The lodge prides itself on a warm and welcoming atmosphere in addition to outstanding service. The communal parts of the main lodge include an open-fronted lounge area. This faces out onto manicured lawns and overlooks the Sohebele River. Just past the main lounge area is the rim-flow swimming pool, which also overlooks the waterhole.
Meals are usually taken outdoors. Depending on the weather, the location is either the traditional boma or a scenic setting.
The main area has a lounge space, bar and a swimming pool overlooking the Nhlaralumi River where you can relax between morning and afternoon game drives. This reserve is famous for its Big Five game-viewing area, which borders the western boundary of Kruger National Park.
