A superb, all-inclusive South Africa stay at a luxury safari lodge in a private game reserve, with daily game drives

  • For a soul-stirring stay in South Africa, little compares to Motswari Safari Lodge, a private family-owned abode set deep within the Timbavati Game Reserve. For starters it’s very exclusive; not least because it only caters for up to 30 guests at any given time. Better still, it’s on the western edge of nature-rich Kruger National Park.

  • There’s a total of 15 luxurious bungalows on site, each kitted out with African decor, dark wooden features, and vibrant soft furnishings to complement your natural surroundings. Inside, expect 400-thread-count Egyptian cotton linens, mosquito net, air conditioning and an en-suite bathroom, with views of the bush from your room.

  • Dining is a uniquely African affair; meals are taken either at a scenic location out on the trail with one of the guides or in the open-air boma. Kick-start your day with a delicious buffet-style continental breakfast or enjoy a selection of cooked meat options prepared on coal fires - and return later for traditional fare and local wine.
