The Motse Community and Wildlife Conservancy (MCWC) is an independent non-profit established and supported by the shareholders of Limpopo-Lipadi Wildlife and Wilderness Reserve, in the Tuli Block, Botswana.

Motse Community and Wildlife Conservancy Campaigns

Motse Community Outreach

Help fund healthcare, education & recreational projects

Motse means ‘community’ in Setswana, and the word contains letters from the names of the 2 villages closest to Limpopo-Lipadi – Moletemane and Tsetsebjwe. Representatives from both villages collect proposals and Motse funds and manages the agreed upon projects. Your donation makes projects and programming possible in the fields of healthcare, education and recreation.


Help conserve wildlife and habitat

Protecting endangered species like the Southern white rhino, the African wild dog and the brown hyena is essential to preserving the southern African wilderness. Equally important is restoring and protecting habitat, including grasslands and forests, which are home to numerous species. Both anti-poaching and wildlife and habitat management are key elements of our work that require substantial financial resources. Your donation can help fund rhino protection, elephant translocation and other important conservation projects in the Tuli Block.

Scientific Research

Help fund scientific research

Research, conducted using rigorous scientific methods, is the foundation for successful conservation, and your donation makes this research possible. Conservation of wildlife and habitat involves studying, understanding and sometimes managing the complex relationships between the land and the species, particularly endangered species, that make up it’s biodiversity.
