The Motse


  • Special children's room and babysitting services and nannies available
  • Unique desert landscape
  • Same great wildlife as Tarkuni
  • Wonderful library with rare books


  • No elephants
  • Sable antelopes kept separate from the lions, making the experience feel a little manufactured

Fodor's Review

Tswalu's main lodge is made up of freestanding thatch-and-stone suites clustered around a large main building with a heated natural-color pool and a floodlighted water hole. The decor—in keeping with the unusual and unique Tswalu experience—is minimalist and modern, echoing the landscape in colors and textures. But this makes it sound drab, and it's not. Indeed, it's beautiful.
