WeTu Analytics

The low ratio of guests to space at Tswalu offers two of the greatest travel luxuries - time and space. Your adventure begins in one of two sustainably designed camps, the Motse, with nine contemporary legae (Tswana for ‘dwelling’), or Tarkuni, an exclusive-use homestead for 10, reopened this year after a thoughtful renovation in tune with nature. Tswalu’s guarantee of a private vehicle, guide and tracker provides complete freedom to traverse South Africa’s biggest privately owned reserve. The wide, open spaces, so typical of the southern Kalahari’s dramatic beauty, await exploration both on and off the vehicle. Actively tracking iconic Kalahari species, like a pride of black-maned lions or a brown hyena, adds to the interactive thrill of game viewing, as do sightings of elusive creatures, like pangolin and aardvark. With the opening of Restaurant Klein JAN, in collaboration with Michelin-starred chef Jan Hendrik van der Westhuizen, the culinary traditions and ingredients of the Northern Cape have become the unexpected heroes of an imaginative menu deeply rooted in this under-explored region. By choosing Tswalu, our guests not only become part of a bigger sustainability story but contribute towards the conservation of the southern Kalahari’s biodiversity.
