Motswari Private Game Reserve – Land of Hopes and Dreams
We can’t thank the staff at Motswari enough for what was the pinnacle of our three-week trip to Zimbabwe, Mpumalanga, Kruger and the Cape/Hermanus, with a special mention to our fantastic ranger and tracker, Angie and Goodman, along with Lydia from the management team. All proved to be wonderful hosts and friends throughout our four-day stay – we only wish it could have been longer.
Whilst the previous reserve we stayed at in Sabi Sands was suffering badly from the draught and subsequent decimation of foliage by the significant elephant population, Motswari was like Eden by comparison. The game was plentiful to the point that one day we saw all Big Five during one game drive. Add to this our bucket list of special viewing we were hoping and fortunate to see (leopard in a tree at sunset; a lion kill; hippos out of water; crocs; a large herd of 100+ water buffalo; a hyena pack with cubs; African wild dogs with pups; male kudu fighting; a real-life zebra crossing; and a big 40+ year old elephant tusker) and we were in safari heaven.
Couple this with fantastic food, great accommodation (we stayed in 2 rondavel huts, Kudu and Duiker, which were large, well presented and authentic) and a really relaxed camp and you can’t go wrong.
We were truly sad to leave and wished we could stay longer with people that had genuinely become our friends in a remarkably short time.
