Northern Cape Game and Nature ReservesThe Tswalu Kalahari Reserve
Surrounding the rugged Koranneberg Mountains in the Northern Cape Province of South Africa, Tswalu Kalahari Reserve covers 1000km˛ (100 000 hectares) of land on the edge of the mysterious desert wilderness that is the Kalahari.
In the Kalahari, the thornveld and sweeping sand dunes are home to some of the world's most fascinating wildlife. It is here that you will find Tswalu Kalahari Reserve, the most extensive private game reserve in South Africa. The word 'Tswalu' is a Tswana word meaning 'new beginning'.
Free from malaria and other tropical diseases, Tswalu Kalahari Reserve boasts 70 species of mammal including lion, cheetah, desert black rhino, sable and roan antelope. More than 200 species of bird can also be found.
Tswalu is the historical home of the San, whose storytelling and dream imagery can be seen at the many archaeological sites found in this unique private game reserve.
Tswalu offers game drives in open-sided, canopied safari vehicles. All game drives are led by experienced rangers who provide a fascinating insight into indigenous wildlife of the region. Optional bush walks allow guests of this private South African game reserve to get even closer to nature, and are led by experienced field guides who are highly knowledgeable into the local vegetation, bush medicines and history of the San people.
Bird-watching, star-gazing and visits to the habituated meerkat dens of Tswalu are just some of the activities on offer at Tswalu. Optional horseback trails, with a qualified guide, enable guests to become one with nature and to experience close encounters with wildlife.
