‘Engaging, Accessible and Truly Wonderful’
Tswalu Kalahari experience engages visitors in unique and special ways. Game-viewing opportunities are unparalleled and the reserve’s child-friendly approach and malaria-free location make activities and an appreciation of the Kalahari wilderness accessible to individuals and families alike.
The Kalahari’s thornveld and sweeping sand dunes are home to some of the world’s most fascinating wildlife. Bird-watching, star-gazing and visits to San rock engraving sites and meerkat dens are just some of the activities on offer.
In Our Opinion
‘A perfectly magical experience awaits visitors who without exception remember their time at Tswalu as almost magical; guests should prepare to be inspired and amazed’
*****Meerkat Manor Special*****
Van Zylrus, The famous meerkats of ' Meerkat Manor' are located just 45 minutes from Tswalu and a visit there can be booked as an extra activity. Guests will be taken there early in the morning before the meerkats exit the burrows, to witness the fascinating activity; these meerkats will continue with their foraging in the presence of humans and may even be intereacted with.
Meerkat enthusiasts should not miss this real treat!
Cost £65-70 per person plus £110-£122 transfer cost per group of up to 6
Accommodating only 30 guests in this expanse of over a hundred thousand hectares, privacy and exclusivity are paramount. There are two accommodation options:
The Motse is nestled at the foot of the Korannaberg mountain range, facing westward across the grasslands of the Kalahari. Designed to blend inconspicuously into the mountain range surrounding the game reserve, the Motse consists of eight spacious legae (a Tswana word for small house/suite), all designed with a distinct and elegant African character. Within the Motse there are two room types: 6 standard suites & 2 family suites.
Set amid two rolling mountain ranges, Tarkuni is the ultimate in secluded luxury and is perfect for small groups of up to 10 guests; families can feel perfectly at home. Tarkuni offers the luxury of absolute flexibility with a private game viewing vehicle, as well as a dedicated host and chef.
