Tswalu Motse Lodge

You will find Motse at the bottom of the Korannaberg Mountains facing the Kalahari grasslands. The name “Motse” means village in Tswana and this village consists of just eight spacious suites built of local stone and red clay, just like local traditional villages. Each suite has private sun deck that overlooks a waterhole, attracting the Kalahari animals. With only 20 guests allowed at any given time, Motse is true to its other name – Island of calm.
