Located within the Timbavati and Umbabat Private Nature Reserve, the luxurious Motswari Private Game Reserve has been family owned and operated for over forty years. 

Accommodating for a maximum of 30 guests at any one time, Motswari Private Game Reserve remains exclusive. Stretched out over 150 square kilometers, guests have a good opportunity to view a wide variety of wildlife, including the Big Five as they bask in their natural environment.

Kruger National Park is one of the world’s most famed protected areas, known for its size, history of conversation, diversity of wildlife and ease of access. It’s a place where the drama of life and death is played out on a daily basis.

South Africa’s first national park is a great place to view the Big 5 with healthy populations of lion, leopard, rhino, elephant, and buffalo. In fact Kruger has more species of large mammals than any other park in Africa as well as over 500 species of birds found, making it the ideal safari location.


Motswari Private Game Reserve is located approximately 1.5 hours drive from Hoedspruit Airport.
