Discover the Diverse Wildlife of Southern Africa
Nestled in the western reaches of the expansive 75,000-hectare Madikwe Game Reserve in the North West Province, Motswiri Private Safari Lodge offers an intimate, malaria-free safari experience in the presence of the Big Five. The lodge lives up to its name—Motswiri, or Leadwood in Tswana—providing an unparalleled, personalised wilderness adventure you won’t find in larger establishments.
The lodge is cocooned under a canopy of mature Leadwood trees, serving as the backdrop for the main building, five opulent bush villas, and a lavish Family Villa. Each of these tranquil havens offers stunning vistas of the Madikwe landscape. The elegantly designed main lodge features separate lounge, dining, and bar areas, each boasting a warm, inviting fireplace to keep the chill at bay during winter months.
Step outside to the rim-flow pool and soak in the views of an active waterhole, or savour a cocktail on the main deck under the shade of ancient Motswiri trees. Alternatively, unwind in the outdoor lounge and bar area, embracing the serenity that surrounds you. Culinary delights await in the dining room, under the Leadwood canopy, or around a blazing fire in the open-air boma. Our team delivers impeccable, yet relaxed, service to ensure an unforgettable stay.
At Motswiri Safari Lodge, opulence meets the wilderness in our 5 Luxury Bush Villas. Each of our expansive Luxury Bush Villas features a generously sized bedroom that opens onto a private deck, offering awe-inspiring views of the stunning landscape.
