Tswalu Kalahari is one of the tourist destinations we are talking about this month. The name Kalahari is derived from the Tswana word “Kgala”, meaning the great thirst, or “Kgalagadi”, meaning the waterless place while “Tswalu” means “new beginning”. The Tswalu Kalahari Reserve is situated in the Southern Kalahari region and is one of the best destinations in South Africa to gain access to some of South Africa’s most precious ecologies, to learn about their wildlife and to understand how conservation works. Tswalu Kalahari, owned by the Oppenheimer family, is South Africa’s largest private game reserve, covering an area of over 100,000 hectares (1000 sq km or almost a quarter of a million acres).

 For comparison, this is twice the size of Pilanesberg National Park and bigger than the entire Madikwe reserve.


Tswalu Kalahari offers sightings of some of South Africa’s rarest and most extraordinary wildlife, including the Desert black rhino, Black-maned Kalahari lions, Meerkats, Cheetah, Rare Antelope such as Roan, Sable and Tsessebe, and over 70 species of mammal and 230 species of birds (including endangered Raptors). Other sightings may include the elusive Aardvark, Aardwolf, Pangolin and Porcupine. Travellers can either lodge at The Motse or The Tarkuni both of which have spacious suites (8 at The Motse and 5 at The Tarkuni) – filled with comfort and elegance.
