Motswari celebrated Earth Hour this evening where we joined thousands around the world in switching off all power between 8:30 and 9:30 pm. This timing was perfect, as guests were just finishing up their first glass of wine, and being seated for dinner. It was a magical evening where guests enjoyed a candle lit dinner and it was almost a bit of a disappointment when the lights did eventually come back on. The guests were very excited to get involved and enjoyed the evening immensely both at Motswari and Shlaralumi. Even the kitchen amazingly served up a three course meal by candlelight. I took a long exposure shot of the dining area, purely lit by candles and paraffin lanterns.
Open to the Kruger National Park and playing host to Africa's Big Five is Motswari Private Game Reserve. One of South Africa's jewels nestled within the Timbavati Nature Reserve, this family-owned and operated four-star luxury safari lodge prides itself on its warm atmosphere and luxurious accommodation.
