As its name suggests, Motswiri Private Safari Lodge is an exclusive lodge offering guests a personal bush experience, which is impossible to replicate in larger concerns. The lodge offer some of the best views in Madikwe as well as the tranquil feel given by the mature trees (mostly Leadwoods) under which the lodge’s main building and five luxury bush villas nestle.
Motswiri has luxurious accommodation, with each bush villa offering stunning views from private decks and multiple-slider bedrooms and bathrooms. Add double-sided fire places, air-conditioning/ ceiling fans, stunning bathrooms and an outdoor shower and you have a bush experience second to none. Then our Family Villa offer three rooms all with en-suite bathrooms. The Luxury Family villa boasts a private lounge area leading out onto a private deck and pool.
At the main area of the lodge enjoy the rim-flow pool overlooking the waterhole, have a cocktail under the shade of the Motswiri trees (Leadwood in Tswana) on the main deck or just while away the day in the outside lounge and bar area. Fine cuisine is served in the dining room, under the Leadwood or around a roaring fire in the boma.
Staff offer personal service in a relaxed but professional manner and the twice daily game drives are conducted by our rangers whose superb bush knowledge is imparted in the manner best suited to the bush knowledge of the guests on the specially designed landcruiser game viewing vehicle.
Motswiri offers the option of individual bookings or exclusive use of the lodge for groups. The lodge is ideal for corporate, family / friend groups of up to ten people who do not wish to share the facilities with other guests.
Motswiri is a mere 3-1⁄2 hours drive from Johannesburg or for utter indulgence, guests can opt for a fly-in safari to the reserves all weather airstrip.
Scheduled daily charters are available via the Federal Air Madikwe Charter Joint Venture Partnership. Lodge tariffs include luxury accommodation, two fabulous game drives per day and all meals.

Directions to Motswiri Private Safari LodgeFrom OR Tambo Airport – take the R21 towards Pretoria and at the intersection head north on the N1 towards Polokwane & the N4 Toll Road
Once past Pretoria, turn onto the N4 Toll road towards Rustenburg, Swartruggens, Groot Marico and Zeerust
Please stay on the N4 – do not follow GPS as it might take you on alternative gravel roads which are not very well signposted.
Please approach Motswiri from the main Zeerust/Gabarone road (R49) and enter through the Wonderboom Gate.
Do not approach Motswiri from the Sun City side of the Reserve by attempting to enter the Reserve through the Moletedi Gate as the chances of getting lost are high and the time taken will be far longer as you will have to travel through the Reserve on a main road and then exit and re-enter the Reserve through Wonderboom Gate.
Once in Zeerust turn right at the 4th stop street into “President Street”. There is a signpost on the left that says “Madikwe Game Reserve/Gaberone” and a ABSA Bank on the corner to the left.
Follow the R49 (R47 occasionally) towards the reserve for approximately 91km
The first entrance to the reserve is Abjaterskop Gate
Pass that gate and enter at the next gate – Wonderboom Gate, exactly 7km from the first gate on your right-hand side.
