Motswari was amazing. The staff and guides/trackers were all absolutely wonderful. The staff seemed to genuinely enjoy working together, and it shows. They are kind, courteous, professional, and go above and beyond. The rooms are clean, and beautifully decorated. The food is plentiful, healthy, and really delicious. The chef is truly talented and the staff do their best to make sure you have a wonderful experience with each meal - particularly dinner is always fun. The setting is gorgeous, and we had a great time touring with our group, meeting new people, and going on our awesome game drives. Our guide Meghan and tracker Lot were fantastic, as I’m sure all of the guides and trackers are! We saw the big five within 2 game drives, and learned a ton about the environment, animals, and had such fun adventures with a lot of laughs. We loved Motswari! Thank you for a wonderful stay, beyond what we ever expected!

It was beautiful, right in the reserve but you always felt safe and very well looked after. Very nicely decorated. The staff were so attentive, friendly, and helpful. The staff arranged all our game drives and other excursions perfectly. The food was amazing, and we ate in different areas of the property every night which kept it interesting. The maids kept the rooms so clean and always made sure to put our mosquito nets down at night. The rangers were great fun and very knowledgeable. Everyone went above and beyond!
