Food and Beverages

Due to the remoteness of our Motswari Hideaway Camps, we recommend placing an order for your groceries with local suppliers in Hoedspruit. It may be more convenient for you to call or email ahead of time and place an order with the company for collection en-route to your camp.


Java Camp and Paul's Hideaway are exclusively for self-catering stays with fully-equipped kitchens. Braai wood and ice can also be bought from the Main Camp if you were to run out during your stay. Geiger's Camp is a catered 5-Star experience. 


For your convenience we do have a small washing line at each camp for hand washing, however, Motswari Main Camp offers a laundry service at R100.00 per bag of washing. If you would like laundry to be done, please speak to your guide to arrange for it to be taken to Motswari. Please note that there is a 24-hour turnaround time for our laundry service.

Internet / Mobile Network

While our greatest wish is for you to switch off during your stay, we do offer internet access. All of our camps have mobile reception limited to certain areas - which staff will identify for you. We also have basic internet connections suitable for emails and WhatsApp, however, streaming services are limited due to connectivity speeds.


During your stay you will have exclusive use of either Java Camp, Paul's Hideaway or the 5-Star Geiger's Camp. Each camp is fully equipped with everything you need. 

Transfer Companies

Should you require a transfer company to transport you to Motswari we have supplied the contact details of the transfer companies we recommend. When making a reservation, we can share this information with you.


Prepare your meals in our fully-equipped indoor kitchen or outdoor boma, where you can dine underneath the stars. With so many different setups for meals you can make the most of your experience and bush cuisine.  


Each camp has experienced housekeepers who provide daily cleaning of the camp. A Sous Chef can be arranged at an additional cost should you need some assistance in the kitchen.


Although the tap water is drinkable, we advise that you rather make use of the provided drinking water. If you run out, more water can be arranged from the main camp during your stay. 


We do offer emergency evacuations, with all medical emergencies managed through the Main Motswari Lodge. For emergencies contact, +27 15 793 1718.
