Motswari and Chapunga Client Feedback – by Liselle Raath

Hi Liselle

Had a great holiday in SA and the game drives were the highlights of the holiday. Saw the Big 5 at both locations.


This was more luxurious accommodation and being bigger had more atmosphere in the lodge. It also had better catering and overall facilities and the view across the bush allowed some interesting sights including elephants coming to drink from the swimming pool. Good game ranger and some good game spotting but some days were a struggle because the area is open and the lions had wandered onto private property that we could not access. Apparently the new F & B manager has made a big difference to the catering which was excellent


Different experience and novel to sleep under canvas in the bush and really hear the sounds of Africa. The tents are showing some signs of wear and tear and need some maintenance plus it was unbearably hot in the tent during the day making it impossible to get that much needed siesta. Food was good but the lamb chops one night were a disaster. A smaller and more intimate camp and a great swimming pool. The game drives were absolutely superb with a very experienced and laid back ranger (Richard) and an excellent spotter (Ishmail) who were a great team. We saw leopard, cheetah, newly born impala, lions, rhino, buffalo, wildebeest, elephants etc etc and a lot of birdlife

Overall great and 4 days is the maximum for twice daily game drives. 3 days probably ideal but the more drives you take the more you see. All transfers worked smoothly and it was the highlight to a wonderful holiday

Thanks for making the arrangements and some great recommendations. I would love to return and bring my grown up children at some stage ………….but will probably need to win the lottery first!!

kind regards
