Tswalu is South Africa’s largest private game reserve, at over 420 square miles in area. It protects an important and beautiful swathe of the Kalahari Desert. It’s a wild region of rugged beauty, and with guest numbers strictly limited, the goal is that the mountains and grasslands of Tswalu can remain pristine. This is conservation on a huge scale – but at the same time, you’ll be made to very welcome through all sorts of caring details. You’ll likely encounter new species of wildlife here – birds, mammals and reptiles that have adapted to live in this arid and – at first glance – inhospitable area. Get ready to experience incredible night skies, miles away from any light pollution, and to find your true self in this unique private game reserve.
