Inside the spectacular dining experiences at Motswari
Motswari is a special place for many reasons, too many to list, but one of the most unique of them is our extraordinary outdoor dining experiences. Every evening dinner is served in a different spot in and around the lodge from the renowned boma to the bush, poolside, gallery, the breakfast area, lawn, riverbed and veranda. Now, if you read that list and thought “the bush, how can one possibly have dinner in the bush?” Well, your surprise is perfectly understandable and to be expected, but we do ladies and gents. We have dinner in the middle of wild Africa, and let me tell you, it’s a once in a lifetime occasion.
Each of these settings are special in their own right and have vastly different features that make them unique. However, one thing you can be sure to count on for your dinners at Motswari is the exceptionally delicious food our talented kitchen ladies prepare. Whether you are spending your honeymoon with us or traveling with the family, Motswari’s immersive evenings are for everyone.
Enjoy this collection of our memorable and beautiful evenings at Motswari.
The infamous boma is always a guest favourite. With a roaring bonfire in the centre, mouth-watering cuisine, ice cold drinks at the bar, starry skies above and often times traditional dancing by staff, the atmosphere in the boma is phenomenal.
After an eventful evening game drive, you will be accompanied to the surprise bush locale by your guide who will be joining your table for dinner. A night out in the bush encourages you to completely engage in the natural environment, providing you with an incredibly authentic African experience. Listening to the sounds of nature, breathing in the abundant fresh air, appreciating a local South African braai, and the great company of others, is the essence of our bush dinner.
Your welcome drink awaits. Upon arrival at bush dinner you will be treated to a refreshing drink, usually a mimosa, to quench your thirst after your enthralling game drive.
Dining poolside is simply serene. Intently listening to the sounds of the bush at night, one will hear in the distance the pleasing call of the African barred and scops owlets, the eerie whoop of the spotted hyena, the iconic roar of a lion and the deep croaking of frogs. The slow flowing water from the pool also adds that extra touch of tranquillity. One may even see an animal or two taking a wander along the river bed.
Our hardworking service team strives to ensure you have a brilliant time with us. Always going the extra mile, our dinner set up never ceases to amaze. Dining at the gallery is rather cosy and comfortable. After a tasty meal one can lounge around with friends and family, browse the book selection, enjoy the fireplace, play a game or two, and peruse our special gallery walls displayed with many cherished memories, as well as our cabinet of interesting wildlife collections.
The magical space that is the veranda illuminates the charisma, heritage and history of Motswari. Presented in the décor, art, and spirit of the area, one feels right at home.
It’s remarkable how the ambiance in this corner changes from morning meals compared to that of dinner. It almost feels like dining in two very different worlds – both exceptional.
At Motswari, we continuously strive to deliver an authentic, immersive and truly unique safari adventure for you and yours. In making this a reality, our unforgettable dining experiences will leave you utterly mesmerised and in love with the African bush.
