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. Its five deluxe suites lead off from a capacious open-plan living area perfect for post-safari debriefs. An outdoor swimming pool, games room, and library offer a distraction from obsessing over the Big Five. A private chef adds that final tier of exclusivity to this sumptuous African residence.

Their newest addition, Loapi, is a luxury tented camp with six, individual, tented safari homes for the ultimate private wilderness experience.


The opportunity for a horseback safari experience, galloping across the sand dunes with the Korannaberg Mountains in the distance, is surely a universal life goal.

You’ll find yourself among the huge diversity of wildlife—think giraffes, zebra, buffalo, to name a few—found in this conservation hotspot. Although the landscape, sunsets, and immaculate Kalahari night skies will all vie to pull your attention away from the tail-swishing locals.
