  • Good stay but the wifi was pretty much no existent and no TV - in fairness not the reason…Aug 9, 2017
  • In general it was a great experience, but there were some minor points of frustration.…Aug 9, 2017

A must stay luxury lodge in the wild
Absolutely amazing place. We stayed for 2 nights, we booked one but loved it so much we extended our stay. Everything about Matswori is amazing. The people are phenomenal and incredibly helpful, you can tell everyone loves being there. The guides are so knowledgeable about the game, and go out of there way to make sure your game drive is the best. The food is delicious, we've never eaten so much good food. And the hotel itself is adorable. Animals wander right into the camp, so you can watch elephants from your porch, kudu at breakfast and warthogs by the pool.

WOW!
What an amazing experience! The staff is so welcoming and accommodating and work hard to create an environment of eco-friendly fun. I appreciate how much they were willing to teach us about the game reserve and wildlife and the history of Kruger National Park in relation to the Motswari. Fantastic safari tour, best safari vehicles I've ever seen!

Great time on safari
We really enjoyed our stay at the Motswari Lodge. Located one and a half hours from the East Gate Airport. The private reserve allows you to go off road to discover or follow animals. The remote location adjoining Kruger National Park is ideal for viewing animals. The staff and the meals at the resort were terrific. We would return to this lodge.
