    Hi there, Is the lodge really only 50min drive from Hoedspruit airport? I'm not looking to rent a car, how much is the hotel transportation from/to airport? Thank you in advance!

    My family have just booked four nights at Motswari game reserve. This is our first safari trip and I am beyond excited, however I am also a little anxious about our daughter being 10 years old. I would love her to experience everything but will there be restrictions on what she can do like a bush walk or overnight camping? Has anyone else travelled with children here?

    Response from MotswariLodge | Property representative |
    There is an age restriction on bush walks, minimum age is12yrs.

    I believe there is road from JNB to here but its a very long drive so we just flew into Kruger Airport. I am not sure about Halal food so you might want to ask the hotel directly.
