About Motswari – Geiger’s Camp

Motswari Game Reserve lies in the heart of the untamed South African landscape - a place untouched that is still teeming with wildlife, where predator and prey remain locked in a constant battle for survival. Here, there is an incomparable beauty; an Africa you have to experience.

Deep in the Timbavati Nature Reserve, this vintage game lodge exemplifies the simple balance of nature, as understated luxury and conservation come together as one. This inspiring family-owned game reserve has been in the care of the Geiger family for more than 40 years. Motswari means "to conserve and protect" in Tswana, a native language indigenous to the area.

The 150 square kilometres game reserve has long been a wildlife sanctuary, a haven for large varieties of plant and animal species. Sadly, few places remain on the African continent that still offers such diversity. Here, you’ll witness the unyielding nature of the bushveld, as you get to see the secret habits of animals as they live, day after day, in the Timbavati Nature Reserve.

Safari: We specialise in morning and evening game drives in open Land Rovers with professional field guides and trackers, morning bush walks and overnight walking safaris with experienced guides.

Conference Venues: We have a fully-equipped air-conditioned conference room for 20 delegates, for team buildings, product launches or corporate getaways. We have an internet hotspot available for those conducting business.
