Guest Comments:

The service you provided was excellent and more than we expected. We absolutely LOVED the venue and the services your team provided. The venue was beautiful and the team was extremely efficient and helpful. Despite the timeline having moved forward on the day, your team was extremely efficient, helpful and timely. Our wedding was even better than we expected. The venue was beautiful, the food was excellent and there was more than enough for everyone. We will highly recommend Motozi to every bride and groom. Thank you again for your beautiful venue, for being willing to go the extra mile, and making an effort to accommodate all our changes and all our unusual requests. We hope Motozi grows from strength to strength. — Chavonne & Alister – May 2018

You guys were really helpful throughout the planning process and assisted greatly to resolve any issues in a calmly manner, even on the day of the wedding to re-arrange the table layout of the hall. This is really a beautiful venue and we will definitely be recommending it for weddings to family and friends. And even just for a relaxing weekend get away. My family and friends really enjoyed staying at the lodge before the wedding. The food was great and the Motozi Classic is definitely recommended. And we really enjoyed the Boma facility afterwards. We have not had one guest complain about anything and everyone had a great time. A big thanks to Laura, Xander and the rest of your team. — Denise & Flip – March 2018

Thank you for everything. The wedding was a 6 star rating. The venue and staff were outstanding. The food from the starters, to the main course and the dessert were all of the highest quality. Compliments to the Chef. “A” class food. Thank you!!!! We cannot say enough. Motozi Lodge will be highly recommended by all of us. Please also give a big “Thank you” to the waitresses and Waiters. They were amazing. Nothing was too much trouble for any of the staff, and this made Angelique and Alex’s day even more special. Please keep up the amazing work. We have all fallen in love with Motozi. You all will always be in our hearts. From all our family and friends we say “Thank You” — Sandie (Mother of the Bride): Angelique & Alex – 27 February 2016

This is another beautiful South African venue with an awesome experience like a fairytale. I have never been to a wedding which packed such an amazing “WOW” factor. Thanks to Laura Brits and her team. The venue was superb, the decking reaching out forever, the pools – everything was just the perfect setting. The food, including breakfast, was an absolutely memorable delight – a huge compliment to those who put it together. We were very happy with every aspect of Motozi Lodge and I recommend it to anyone who would like to experience tranquillity, good food, service and hospitality!! Thank you Laura and staff for walking the extra mile and making Abie and Michelle’s day the best day of their lives!! Soon we’ll be back but this time with a blue or pink colour scheme! Definitely a must wedding venue or visit destination!! –With love from the Smit and Van Wyk Families: Abie & Michelle – May 2016
