The Motse

Tswalu Kalahari Private Game Reserve, South Africa

Those looking for a personal safari experience will relish in The Motse’s secluded location. Nestled in South Africa’s largest private game reserve Tswalu Kalahari - which only allows 30 guests into its vast landscape of grassland and mountain at a time - you’ll see no one else as you explore the endless plains.

Created with desert sand, red clay, local stone and Kalahari thatch, The Motse is charmingly rustic, yet the woven furnishings, expansive verandas and cosy fireplace in the main lodge add a touch of opulence. With only nine suites altogether – including six standard suites and three family suites – your stay will be intimate. All of the suites have a private deck overlooking a waterhole and their own fireplace to keep toasty, whilst the family suites have an extra bedroom.

We love spending an afternoon leisurely swimming in the large infinity pool, or tucking ourselves into one of the warm orange sofas next to the fireplace. The food here is sumptuous too, and those wishing to truly relax will love the luxury spa. The lodge’s location right at the foot of the Korannaberg Mountains means that no matter where you spend your time, you’ll have an incredible backdrop.

A luxury African safari is best when it’s a personal experience, an element that is paramount at The Motse lodge.
