The Motse comprises nine spacious air-conditioned suites. Each suite has an open fireplace in the large bedroom, en-suite bathroom with indoor and outdoor heated shower, with the outdoor shower looking out across the Kalahari plain as well as a private sun deck. A separate dressing room area can be easily converted into a small second bedroom for younger children. There are also three family suites which have two separate bedroom suites with private bathrooms, a spacious living room and a private terrace. There is a spectacular central lounge and dining area with an open fireplace, a spa, swimming pool and sun deck, boma and a mezzanine library. The surroundings are elegantly simple with a swimming pool opening to the remarkable scene of animals drinking at a nearby watering hole.

Experience the splendour of the Kalahari

It is the only game lodge in South Africa to offer the excitement of a real desert experience, where you can encounter the solitude and endless space of the Kalahari savannah. On daily exciting game drives possible sightings might include the Kalahari black-maned lions, the endangered desert black rhino, unusual antelope species such as roan, sable and tsessebe or cheetah brothers hunting across the open plains.

There is the option to take a horseback safari with a qualified guide, enabling guests to become one with nature and to experience particularly close encounters with all manner of wildlife as you ride amongst them. Birdwatching, stargazing and unique visits to the habituated meerkat dens are just some of the other activities on offer at Tswalu.

Malori Starbed and Tarkuni private safari house

For those that wish to, there is also the opportunity to experience a spectacular Malori sleep out under the stars. This incredible star bed is in a remote location some distance from the lodge and promotes an exciting feeling of isolation with only the nocturnal sounds of the Kalahari for company. There is also an exclusive-use lodge, Tarkuni House, perfect for multi-generation family safaris.
