The Motse is where it all started. Thatched rooves and desert rock form a secluded ‘village’ of nine luxurious legae (the Setswana word for ‘home’). Perfectly reflecting the landscape’s natural beauty, these tranquil retreats offer elegant simplicity partnered with uncompromised comfort. Pale sandstone and exposed wooden beams create a cool and calming environment in which to relax after a long day of adventure. Curl up by the crackling log fire and reflect on the events of the day, or head to the expansive outdoor decking and feast on a meal under the stars.
For larger groups or families, Tarkuni is a thatched homestead that offers the ultimate retreat for both entertaining and unwinding. The vast, open plan living room leads onto five deluxe suites, as well as a cosy library and games room. Your own private chef and outdoor swimming pool offer even greater seclusion on your exclusive African adventure. Their newest addition, Loapi, is a luxury tented camp with six, individual, tented safari homes for the ultimate private wilderness experience.
Complete flexibility at the lodge will ensure that your every desire is catered to, ensuring you see the very best that these rich, rolling plains have to offer. For a truly unique safari experience, take to the saddle and gallop across this rugged terrain on horseback, as abundant wildlife roams freely and the sweeping landscape unfolds before you. Giraffe, buffalo, and zebra graze these open plains, at peace in the undisturbed comfort of their natural habitat. As the day draws to a close, delight in the breathtaking sunsets and marvel at the diamond skies of the Kalahari night.
