Tswalu Kalahari Game Reserve, the largest game reserve in South Africa. Surrounded by vast open spaces and red dessert soil you will explore the lay of the land in search of the 70 species of mammals that inhabit the reserve, including lessor known species like Aardwolf, Pangolin and Aardvark which are commonly seen here.
Though game drives in open-sided, canopied safari vehicles are the main game viewing activity, you'll have the option of going on bush walks or horseback rides in the company of experienced guides. A variety of dining experiences, including sundowners on lantern-lit dunes, boma dining, and mountain lookouts under umbrella thorn acacias are also available.
Tswalu guests are in search of rarity, adventure, privacy, and inspirational travel. Something off the beaten-track. Tswalu also offers guests the opportunity to participate in one of the biggest conservation projects in South Africa.
