About Motswari Game Reserve

Deep within the Timbavati Nature Reserve lies Motswari Game Reserve. As part of the Greater Kruger National Park Conservancy and traversing close on 200 square kilometres of pristine habitat, Motswari offers visitors the best of Africa; wide horizons, untamed wilderness and plentiful game in its' natural habitat.

Did you know? Led by an armed, experienced professional safari guide and a tracker, it does not come better than a wildlife walking safari through the greater Kruger National Park. With up to 8 people per walking trail, begin at dawn and head into the wild where you could spot any of the Big 5.

Motswari Game Reserve shares an open 20-kilometre boundary with the world-renowned Kruger National Park. As such there is a constant flow of wildlife through the reserve ensuring plenty of excitement during the game-viewing activities. Highly trained rangers and trackers are all passionate wildlife enthusiasts, who thrive on bringing the bush to life for their guests. Be it from the comfort of open, 4x4 vehicles or, for the more adventurous, on foot the wildlife experience at Motswari is second to none.

Strict game-drive policies are adhered to ensuring both the wildlife and guests feel relaxed. All game-drives are in radio contact with one another ensuring optimal chances of those special sightings. The guides are also keen wildlife photographers and will ensure that you get the best photographic opportunities.

Motswari Game Reserve is located in a game-rich area comprising four major habitat types. It supports a diverse range of species, each fulfilling a particular niche for their survival. The Timbavati is renowned for its predator populations, supporting one of the highest densities of lion in Africa. Painted Wolves and Cheetah are also often seen in the area.

Elephant and Cape Buffalo are common in the area, frequently occurring in large breeding herds several hundred strong. There are also healthy populations of all the antelope species of the region.

For the bird-watcher, Motswari is a delight, particularly from September through to May when numerous migratory species arrive for breeding or to escape the harsh northern winter. Some 400 of southern Africa's 900 bird species occur in the area.
