Why Tswalu Kalahari Reserve?

Tswalu, located in a privately owned wilderness in the Northern Cape, is the ultimate off-the-beaten-track luxury safari escape & is at the forefront of sustainable ecotourism in South Africa.

Experience Tucked away between the Korannaberg mountains & grassy, red sand dunes, Tswalu Kalahari Reserve is first & foremost a conservation project that funds numerous research projects, geared towards protecting key species within the Kalahari ecosystem.

Apart from staying in opulent Kalahari luxury, guests are guaranteed access to a private vehicle, guide & tracker – ensuring the freedom & flexibility they so deserve. The cherry on top is that guests have unlimited time at wildlife sightings!

Tswalu Kalahari Reserve is home to 2 stylish camps: Tswalu The Motse & Tswalu Tarkuni, each positioned to take in the wide, open spaces & dramatic beauty of the southern Kalahari.

Activities Activities at Tswalu Kalahari are ample!

Guests can enjoy both day & night drives, nature walks, animal tracking, horse riding & stargazing. Other exciting activities include dune breakfasts, sleeping out under the stars & spending time with habituated meerkats.

When To Travel Tswalu can be visited any time of year, as each of the 4 Kalahari seasons offers something unique.

During Spring (September to October) meerkat pups venture outside their burrows for the first time as the bush anticipates the beginning of the summer rains.

Summer is the longest & most important season. Between November & March, days are hot – but the eruption of rain transforms the Kalahari into a carpet of golden flowers & green grasses. New life is evident everywhere – from jackal pups to newborn antelopes - & birdlife is spectacular.

Autumn is between April & May. Days are milder & the savanna remains at its greenest. The impala rut reaches its peak while tortoises & other reptiles are getting ready to hibernate through the winter.

Winter (June to August) nightly temperatures can be chilly, while days remain pleasantly warm. During this dry season, nocturnal species change their daily routines & are often seen above ground, in search of sunshine. This is the best time to spot the elusive species at Tswalu, such as aardvark, aardwolf & pangolin.
